WWL 870
New Oreans, Louisiana

WWL 870 with its 50 kW clear channel signal is widely heard at night in North America. They played a major role in providing information to a large audience after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. However, with more stations occupying the channel, getting clear reception of WWL is more difficult in many areas. I first picked them up on 22 December 1969 and sent them a reception report. In response they sent a QSL card. Thirty years later to the day, I sent another reception report and they replied with a second QSL card.
