E-mail QSL from Grace Blazer, Program Director at WIOD 610 today.
Also on Dec. 8:
E-mail from Matt at CJMR saying it was their station I’ve heard with English, but that they were uncertain about the time, because it should have been Punjabi at that time. So I mailed him again and specified their local time. He couldn’t confirm it until after the Christmas because of busy time. I count it as a verification anyway, because I sent him a recording of the Punjabi program on an other date.
E-mail from Duff Lindsey, Operations Manager at WWNN 1470 and a more formal verification from Jodi Mibaum WWNN/WSBR Radio. the day after.
E-mail QSL from Fred Miller, Operations Manager at WDEA 1370

E-mail QSL from WWVA Wheeling WV 1170 khz on a report from Oct 15.
Chief Engineer Jack Rees says they get numerous reports from Scandinavia and Europe, but that the longest distance report came from Cape Town, South Africa, 4 years ago.
No wonder why the station is coming in nicely in Europe as the towers have been repaired after a storm recently.
