WKAT Miami FL 1360 kHz QSL

It was a pleasant surprise to hear the 1 kw night time signal from WKAT over a distance of 12 309 km (7 648 miles) for the first time on 1360 khz back in January 2006 via the FRG7 and ALA 1530 loop antenna at Noordhoek.

The station made it through with fair peaks around local sunrise (approximately 0350 UTC) and included highlights from the Dennis Prager show, also SRI news at 0353 and id as "News-Talk WKAT" at 0359 UTC.

I was fortunate to receive a friendly, brief verification letter and station sticker in response to my reception report.
