QSL: WOC Davenport IA 1420


1420 kHz is an interesting frequency where it is possible to hear a lot of stations, with some luck and patience of course. WOC in Davenport, Iowa, is one of the stations which can make it across the Atlantic from time to time. Stations from Iowa are not very common at Lista, and WOC is no exception from that rule.

WOC had a reasonable signal one morning last March though, more than enough for sending along a reception report. Jon Book, Engineer at the station, has been verifying reception reports to WOC for many years and also confirmed my reception of the station.  Jon also enclosed a booklet of the history of the station (which dates back all the way to 1922) as well as some historic pictures of WOC.

WOC has a news talk format and broadcasts with a power of 5 kilowatts.
