WHO Des Moines IA 1040 kHz QSL

WHO Des Moines IA on 1040 kHz was heard in Pinelands on the 28th August 1980 via the Siera receiver and 20 metre longwire antenna.

I was fortunate to receive the above QSL card in response to my reception report


George Kuhns, the president of the owning company Bankers Life, promoted the creation of the station. He chose the callsign WHO due to the fact that during the 1920s, people searching for stations on the radio dial would ask, "Who is it ?"
