QSL: WFOY St. Augustine FL 1240

WFOY is a station which is heard every now and then on 1240 kHz at Lista. Sadly, 1240 kHz often suffers from severe splash from Absolute Radio (xVirgin Radio) on 1242 kHz often spoiling reception of the interesting graveyard frequency of 1240 kHz completely. The most common station on 1240 kHz is definitely CKIM in Newfoundland, usually with VOCM programming. Other stations are rarely heard. I have heard WFOY a couple of times though. Licenced to St. Augustine, Florida, this news and talk station sometimes makes it across the pond despite a very moderate output power of 580 watts. The coastal location and a favourable pattern no doubts help a lot. President Kris Phillips confirmed my reception of WFOY with an e-mail yesterday.
