QSL: WWTX Wilmington DE 1290

WWTXHearing Delaware was beyond all expectations before heading to Lista last March. Delaware is widely regarded among Scandinavian DX-ers as being the most elusive of all U.S. states to hear. Delaware is still may be not the most difficult state at Lista. I would consider both Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, Kansas, New Mexico and certainly Hawaii to be even rarer at, but Delaware is still a very difficult state.

We were thus very excited to find the signal of WWTX on 1290 kHz when reviewing our recordings. WWTX came through one night just before powering down from their day time power of 2,5 kilowatts to their night time power of just 32 watts. We heard them mentioning their web site as well as a commercial for a local firm in Wilmington.

WWTX carries Fox Sports Radio and is branded as “Delaware’s All Sports Station”. Program Director Kathryn Alt confirmed my reception with an e-mail last week.
