WTMA in Charleston, South Carolina, has a night time power of 1 kilowatt only and is not the most frequent guest on 1250 kHz. The signal of WTMA was noted several times at Lista in November 2009, however. Justin Tucker, Chief Engineer/MIS Director confirmed my audio recording of WTMA with an e-mail some weeks ago.
WTMA broadcast a news talk format. The station has even created a web page about the history of the station called WTMA Memories.
WLMC in Georgetown, South Carolina, was another nice catch at Lista in last October. The station was heard with gospel music and announcing various religious and community events in and around Georgetown. WLMC broadcasts with a daytime power of 1 kilowatts while their nighttime power is just 184 watts. As we heard them around 7.15 p.m. EST, I guess we heard them with 184 kilowatts only. A nice catch indeed!
Station owner Rod Stalvey mentions they spent some effort and money to improve their transmitting facility 2 years ago and this may explain why the station makes it through all the way to Scandinavia at times. In 2006 Mr. Stalvey also verified my reception of their sister station WGTN on 1400 kHz, heard in February 2006 at Lista. WLMC has got a really nice logo (with palms), see above.
WGTN in Georgetown, South Carolina, was probably my very best logging from the February 2006 DXpedition to Lista. The station was only heard briefly with a jingle and a record by Neil Diamond. A few days ago I got an e-mail from Rod Stalvey confirming my reception of WGTN.
Brief e-mail from Justin Tucker, Chief Engineer/MIS Director of Citadel Broadcasting Company confirming my report on WXTC in Charleston, South Carolina, on 1390 kHz. WXTC was heard several times last winter, both at Lista and at home, always playing gospel music.
