The evenings provided some excellent DX at our latest DX-pedition at Lista. One of the stations heard was WXEX located in Exeter, New Hampshire. We had logged WXEX on a previous DX-pedition (with a very noisy signal) and had some hopes of hearing this station this time too. Indeed, WXEX made it to our radios on the excellent opening on January 16. Their signal was astonishingly clear for some minutes playing a.o. Pointer Sisters “It’s Raining Men”.
Steve Thomas confirmed my reception of WXEX with a brief e-mail. WXEX broadcasts with a daytime power of just 5 kilowatts (and a nighttime power of tiny 3 watts…). Their web page describe their music format programming as “featuring great “Rock ‘N Roll, Pop & Motown” tunes primarily from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s”.
