WWVA 1170
Wheeling, West Virginia

WWVA in Wheeling, West Virginia first signed on the air on 13 December 1926. From 1933 to 2008, WWVA was the home to the Original Wheeling Radio Jamboree (formerly Jamboree USA), the second-longest running program in radio history. The station’s format was country music until 1997 when the station’s owners switched to talk radio. The Jamboree program continues on the low power FM station WVOV-LP 101.1 in Wheeling.

WWVA beams its signal mainly to the east and can be heard in a large area on the East Coast of North America. I decided to send them a reception report just after we moved to Maryland, and they responded with the QSL card and letter below.
