WWL New Orleans LA 870 kHz QSL

WWL New Orleans LA on 870 kHz was heard on the 14th May 1986 via the FRG7 and 30 metre longwire antenna at Pinelands.

WWL Director Of Technical Services Hugh Burney kindly responded to my reception report to the station.

Hurricane Katrina

WWL was one of the few radio stations to remain on air in the area during the immediate effects and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in late August 2005. Announcer Garland Robinette kept broadcasting for a time from an improvised studio built in a closet after the studio's windows were blown out.
