QSL: WPHT Philadelphia PA 1210

Marc Rayfield, SVP Market Manager/General Manager of WPHT-AM, sent me an e-mail last Saturday confirming my reception of WPHT in Philadelphia on 1210 on the November 2007 DX pedition to Lista.

At Lista, WPHT is the most commonly heard station on 1210 kHz along with VOAR in Newfoundland. On a southernly location such as Lista, however, where you can almost see the transmitting towers of Virgin Radio in Scotland on nearby 1215 kHz, the signal of Virgin Radio  is often so strong that it entirely spoils reception of any AM stations on nearby 1210 and 1220 kHz. During November 2007, the signals of both VOAR and WPHT on 1210 as well as WHKW on 1220 were at times sufficiently strong to be heard through the splash. WPHT brands itself both as “The Big Talker” as well as “Philly’s No. 1 For Talk Radio”.

WPHT is my 100th verified U.S. radio station! (including both medium- and shortwave).
