WHBY is the most common Transatlantic catch on 1150 kHz at Lista, along with CKOC in Ontario. Chief Engineer Steve Brown confirmed my reception of the station with an e-mail and a Word attachment. Steve writes that WHBY operates with 20 kilowatts daytime and 25 kilowatts nighttime from a six tower directional antenna system from Kimberly, Wisconsin. Kimberly is located in Northeast Wisconsin, west of Neenah and north of Oshkosh.
1360 kHz is a frequency which is dominated by WDRC in Connecticut. At Lista in January 2011, however, both WMOB in Alabama and WTAQ in Wisconsin could be heard quite well too. Bob Seering, General Sales Manager, confirmed my reception of WTAQ with an e-mail message some days ago.
At Lista in November 2009 we enjoyed fairly good conditions towards North America and we received several stations further in land than we usually do. 1310 kHz is a frequency where either CIWW in Ottawa or WLOB in Maine are clear dominants. On this particular DX-pedition, however, I could also receive WIBA in Madison, Wisconsin, on 1310 kHz on several occasions.
Kurt Petersen, Director of Sales, confirmed my reception of the station with an e-mail some weeks ago. WIBA is a news talk station transmitting with a power of 5 kilowatts.
WNAM in Neenah-Menasha, Wisconsin, was one of the more uncommon stations heard during the November 2007 DX-pedition to Lista. Normally the frequency of 1280 kHz is completely covered by either WFAU in Maine or by WCMN in Puerto Rico with VSB2 in Bermuda and CFMB in Montreal also showing up from time to time. Hearing stations as far west as Wisconsin is rare at Lista, so we were pleasantly surprised to hear WNAM with a pretty good signal at times. WNAM was easily recognizable playing non stop nostalgia music with some announcements in between the music played. Today Market Manager Jeffrey A. Schmidt confirmed my reception of the station with a brief e-mail.
