QSL: WLAC Nashville TN 1510


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
