QSL: WWL New Orleans LA 870

I once read that WWL had one of the strongest signals of any AM station in the US. Its signal no doubt reaches much of the United States at night. WWL is not the strongest US AM signal at my listening post, but WWL is clearly the most regular AM station from Louisiana. Their 50 kilowatts transmitter makes it to Lista regularly, often with good signals in the late morning hours.

Joe Pollet, Director of Engineering, sent me a nice e-mail confirming my reception of WWL in January 2011. Joe writes that their transmitter is located in the marsh and swamp lands South of New Orleans and that their 177 metre high antenna sends most of the signal to the North.
