WLS Chicago IL 890 kHz QSL

Welcome to post no. 250 on the Cape Dx Blog !

WLS Chicago, Illinois on 890 khz made it through to Fish Hoek, South Africa on the 11th of November 1988 via the FRG7 and 25 metre longwire antenna.

Chief Engineer Harry Priester kindly verified my reception report with a friendly and informative QSL letter and verification certificate.

The Radio Timeline and WLS History websites are both worth a visit for those interested in the radio station's history.
