WBCQ - The Planet (via Monticello)

WBCQ - The Planet, transmitting from Monticello, Maine (USA), was logged  on 18 June 2019. Talk Show with dialogue/interview and occasional filler music was monitored from 09.30 till 10.00 UTC. Reception on 9.330 kHz rated an SINPO of 15321 -- weak signal, audible content occasionally clear and some fading under atmospheric noise. For over a week, reception has been "best" around 09.30 up till slightly after 10.00 UTC. I assume this is due to grey-line phenomenon which allows WBCQ's signal to radiate through the southern hemisphere to reach Malaysia.  HERE and HERE is WBCQ (Monticello).

Reception report was emailed to Allan Weiner on the same day. He repliend within a few hours with an eQSL. To obtain the actual QSL card, which I did in 2012, one needs to mail the reception report with  SASE. This was done a day later on 19 June 2019.
