QSL: WEGP Presque Isle ME 1390


Hearing WEGP is certainly not difficult. WEGP is one of the most frequently heard North American AM stations throughout Europe. With a power of 25 kilowatts day and 10 kilowatts night from its location at Presque Isle, Maine, next to the Canadian border, its signals travel across the Atlantic easily.

Getting a reply from the station, however, has proved difficult. Despite a number of attempts through the years, no luck untill last month when Operations Manager Bryan Lawrence confirmed my reception with an e-mail. This was for a report from last season’s DX-pedition to Lista when WEGP was, as usual, heard with armchair quality.
