WLW Cincinnati, Ohio is a pioneer station that was first licensed in March 1922. In the late 1920’s they were called “the Nation’s Station.” In 1934, WLW was a superpower radio station. After midnight, they transmitted with 500,000 watts using the call letters W8XO.

In the 1970’s and before they covered a large part of North America. They were an easy catch in Spokane in the winter on most nights. However, the channel has since become cluttered and it is now difficult to hear them on the West Coast. However, they are in the clear with a huge signal here in Maryland. They sent me a QSL card for my 1970 reception report.
