QSL: WLAC Nashville TN 1510

WLAC_QSL

The only station from Tennessee which can be said to be heard fairly regularly in Southern Norway, is WLAC in Nashville on 1510 kHz. For my part, however, I hadn’t had any luck hearing WLAC untill the October 2008 DX-pedition to Lista. On this DX-pedition, their signal was heard well for several hours mixing with WWZN in Boston. The main challenge in hearing WLAC – which has a power of 50 kilowatts – is getting past WWZN which usually has a powerhouse signal here.

Program Director Tom Peace verified my reception with a kind e-mail. He also enclosed this very cool QSL certificate, which must be a replica of a certificate they used many years ago. Note that WLAC is the station of the “Life & Casualty Insurance Company”. Obviously, that ownership has changed now, but the call sign of the station WLife-And-Casualty has been kept and points back to the early pioneer days of radio
