Another good catch from the latest DX-pedition to Lista was hearing WCRW at close down on 1190 kHz. On 1190 kHz we usually only hear WLIB in New York in the evenings, but on this DX-pedition the signal of WCRW was also heard several evenings just prior to their close down at 22.15 UTC. WCRW was heard with a perfect station identification before playing “Stars and Stripes” at sign off. Prior to that, the programming consisted of a relay of the English language programme from China Radio International.
WCRW broadcasts from Leesburg, Virginia, north west of Washington DC with a listed day time power of 50 kilowatts. Hearing day timers is always fun, and this was a new one for both of us. Brian C. Edwards, Vice President of Operations and Engineering at New World Radio Group confirmed our reception of WCRW with a friendly e-mail.
