WSAN

WSAN
Not hearing anything new on 1460 kHz, I slid up to 1470 and nabbed WSAN at 2255Z Thursday evening. WSAN was running 5 kW from Allentown, Pennsylvania, 145 miles west-southwest. It seemed to be simulcasting sister station WAEB (790 kHz) and was a solid S-7 into the C.Crane CCRadio 2E Enhanced receiver and Terk Advantage loop antenna.

The WSAN antenna farm is in an unusual location --- in the middle of a shopping mall parking lot! I bet the antenna farm was there first and the mall was built up around it.

  1. The radio station tower was there first (1923?) before the Lehigh Valley Mall was built in 1976.
