QSL: WQAM Miami FL 560


WQAM in Miami has become a rather common catch at Lista after CHVO left 560 kilohertz in October 2008. Although WGAN in Maine dominates the frequency, it is not uncommon to hear WQAM either, despite a listed nighttime power of just 1 kilowatt. May be the seaside location of their transmitter just south east of Miami adds up for their rather limited power.

WQAM was heard with a perfect station identification on the hour at the October 2008  DX-pedition to Lista, just a couple of weeks after CHVO quit broadcasting on 560 kHz. Chief engineer George Culso confirmed my reception of the station with a brief e-mail some days ago.
