QSL: WESR Onley-Onancock VA 1330


The star logging from this spring’s DX-pedition to Lista was without doubt WESR on 1330 kHz. WESR, licenced to Onley-Onancock, Virginia, broadcast with a night time power of a mere 51 watts. We are quite sure they were on their day power of 5 kilowatts though when we heard them. The signal of WESR was heard one morning with a perfectly readable station identification on the hour under dominant station WRCA. Will Russell, Account Executive, swiftly confirmed my reception with a brief e-mail reply.

According to the authorative KOJE list, WESR had not been logged in Norway, Sweden and Finland previously. Given the otherwise pretty average (or at times downright lousy) conditions, we were very surprised and most pleased about this logging.
