WRKO Boston MA on 680 kHz is one of the more regular stations heard at Fish Hoek during good mediumwave propagation from the U.S.A. The station made it through with a huge signal on the 21st of November 1988 via the FRG7 and 25 metre longwire antenna.

Chief Engineer Ned Roos kindly responded to my reception report with an informative verification letter.  The Steve Weisman Show was in progress as I tuned in and after seeing my letter, attorney Steve Weisman also kindly ressponded with a WRKO greeting card.
