QSL: WINS New York NY 1010

WINS

David Plotkin, Director of Creative Services and Production, at 1010 WINS confirmed my reception of the station with an e-mail and also attached a vintage QSL-card (see above). I guess these have been “out-of-production” for a number of years, unfortunately.

WINS is of course an easy catch on 1010 kHz here. Getting a QSL has not been easy at all though. I have sent a number of e-mails and even a letter over the years, without any response.

Although QSL-cards don’t exist anymore, it is nice to see that their slogan “All News. All the Time” persists. According to Wikipedia, this has been the slogan of WINS for more than 50 years. WINS transmits with a power of 50 kilowatts from a location in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The station is, however, licenced to New York City.
