#862: QSL: WIZZ Greenfield MA 1520 khz verified my report today. Heard yesterday on Smöla.   Mr. Daniel J. Ferreira, Jr, in the engineering dept says this: ” I QSL your 6FEB18@1640 EST reception report of WIZZ, Greenfield, MA, USA! Congratulations on your catch.  WIZZ operates with 10,000 Watts into a phased and spaced two tower antenna system to create a cardioid pattern, with the lobe to the east and the null towards WWKB, Buffalo, NY, USA(west).  WWKB is the dominant station on 1520kHz, so WIZZ must protect their daytime coverage pattern.  WIZZ is licensed as a “daytime only” facility, and drops carrier, altogether, at local sunset.” “WIZZ is always glad to get DX reports, especially from across the Atlantic“.  He promises a proper QSL card and antenna pattern diagram in the mail too.
