WVIE Pikesville MD 1370 kHz - Audio

Another highlight from the September 2011 Seefontein dxpedition was the reception of WVIE Pikesville MD (a personal first) on 1370 kHz.

The station (branded as "V-1370") made it through over a distance of 12 616 km via the Icom R71E and 220 metre beverage antenna directed towards Eastern Canada. I thought I'd share an audio clip of the reception from across the Atlantic on the 15th September 2011 at 0436 UTC.

The six WVIE (Presently WQLL) antenna towers. The night time antenna pattern towards the south-east would have contributed greatly towards the trans-Atlantic reception in this part of the world.

WQLL (Q-1370)

On August 6, 2012, WVIE changed their format to classic hits (branded as "Q-1370"). On August 7, 2012, WVIE changed their call letters to WQLL.
