WWVA Wheeling WV 1170 kHz QSL and Audio


WWVA Wheeling WV on 1170 kHz made it through to Pinelands on the 31st May 1977 via the Siera receiver and 20 metre longwire antenna. I was fortunate to receive a QSL card in response to my reception report.

The three WWVA 122 metre free standing antenna towers. Built in the 1940's, the transmitter plant building has a bomb shelter with 1 metre thick walls! (Photograph with kind permission from Ken Andrews).

The station id "A Country Radio Legend : WWVA Wheeling" was recorded at Fish Hoek via the FRG7 and modest 40 metre longwire antenna during early 1989.
