KFNW West Fargo, ND-1200
Yet another QSL arrived via e-mail today. It came from KFNW-1200, signed Gary L. Ellingson, Director of Engineering at KFNW who also is a radio amateur (callsign WAØWHE) and SWL with a particular interest in the mediumwave band. A nice letter in .pdf-format, which also will arrive via snailmail. Thanks, Gary!
Gary writes: “KFNW-AM is our MW service operating on 1200 KHz. The studios and transmitters are located in West Fargo, North Dakota, about 100 miles south of the Canadian border. The station operates with 50,000 watts during the day and 13,000 watts at night. The daytime antenna is a three-tower inline beaming 3.5 degrees north. The nighttime antenna is a four-tower inline beaming 3.5 degrees north. Since upgrading our station several years ago we have received numerous reports from Scandinavian listeners. Apparently our signal goes up and over the Pole quite well!”
You bet, Gary! KFNW-1200 has a very nice signal over here, when propagation is favourable.
The audio file can be monitored here.
