WSAN Allentown PA 1470 QSL and Audio

It was a pleasant surprise to hear and identify WSAN Allantown PA on 1470 kHz  (A South African first) on the 15th September 2011 during the recent Seefontein dxpedition.

The station's 5 kw signal made it through over a distance of 12 570 km via the Icom R71E and 220 metre beverage antenna directed towards Eastern Canada.

Director of Operations, Craig Stevens kindly responded with a brief email verification.
