QSL: WDZY Colonial Heights VA 1290


One of many highlights at Lista in October 2008 was hearing WDZY in Colonial Heights, Virginia, on 1290 kHz. WDZY was heard one evening with a clear station identication and Radio Disney programming. They were apparently still on their daytime power of 25 kilowatts when I heard them, otherwise the night time power of their transmitter is just 41 watts! WDZY is not an easy catch as there is always heavy competition from other stations on 1290 kHz, a.o. from WRNI in Rhode Island and from WKBK in New Hampshire.

Station Manager Laura W. Haemker made my day when confirming my reception with an e-mail last week.
