QSL: WEAV Plattsburgh NY 960


After both CHNS in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then CFFX in Kingston, Ontario, left AM for a new life on FM, WEAV in Plattsburgh, New York, has become the dominant station on 960 kHz at my place. WEAV The Zone has a talk format and is now usually an easy catch at my regular DX pedition site at Lista. Program Director Jamie Dennis kindly confirmed my reception of the station with an e-mail today. This was for a report from the October Dx-pedition to Lista.

By the way, the location of their transmitter is Peru, New York, just south of Plattsburgh. Reminds me of a few other American names like London ( Ontario), Athens (Georgia), Amsterdam (New York) or Paris (Texas) – the latter is of course also the name of a fascinating movie. The transmitter of WEAV operates with a power of 5 kilowatts noth day and night.
