QSL: WLIB New York NY 1190

WLIB in New York is easily heard on 1190 kHz, just as many other AM stations in New York City. Receiving a verification from the stations there are not always so easy, however. I have tried WLIB quite a number of times, all in vain untill some weeks ago when I received a friendly e-mail from their Chief Engineer Paul Sanchez. This was for a report on their signal at Lista in November 2009.

WLIB is by far the easiest station to hear on 1190 kHz. They mainly broadcast nice gospel music under the slogan “Your praise and inspirational station”. Talk and religious programmes are also carried at times. WLIB is listed with a night time power of 30 kilowatts, more than enough to make it across the Atlantic… Their transmitting towers are located in Lyndhurst, New Jersey.
