KDKA Pittsburgh PA 1020 kHz QSL

KDKA Pittsburg PA on 1020 khz made it through to Pinelands via the FRG7 and 30 metre longwire antenna on the 21st August 1986.

Radio Programming Intern Rodger Sauer kindly responded to my reception report with a letter and an interesting 1970 booklet "It Started Hear", about the early history of KDKA.

Carried aloft by a big balloon, an experimental antenna is tested in the Pittsburgh area by KDKA personnel (Photographs from "It Started Hear" - a KDKA booklet commemorating 50 years of broadcasting).
