WGBF Evansville IN-1280

Yesterday, I received a very nice reply from Ben
Davis, Chief Engineewgbf-1280_towersr at WGBF. The station was logged in AIH in Februar, but the reception report wasn’t sent until last sunday. Besides that, WGBF has been heard a couple of times also in Komagvær. Ben, who also is a radio amateur with the callsign KC9FLC, tells that WGBF first went on the air Novenber 22nd 1923, which makes it just outside the list with the 100 oldest stations in USA. He also tells that he’s looking forward to receive more reception reports from Scandinavian DXers – so go ahead, folks!

About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
