My subscription to Life expired, but I still have a subscription to Mad.

At 0030Z today, I added number 160 in my AM radio station log: WNSW, “The Voice of Russia,” on 1430 kHz located in Newark, NJ, 84 miles southwest running 10 kW. The station’s signal swung from one extreme to another over a half-hour period; most of the time it was about an S-3, but at times it was so far down in the mud that it was inaudible and on one occasion it built up to an S-7. My receiving equipment: C.Crane CC SW Pocket receiver and CC twin coil ferrite antenna.

The photo above is a screen capture of Google Maps Street View of WNSW’s impressive antenna farm on South Broad Street, one block west of the Garden State Parkway. WPAT AM (930 kHz; number 58 in my AM log) and WPAT FM (93.1 MHz) also transmit from this site.
