WOTE came trough with a good signal on AND3. This evening Don Grassman verified my report. This was my NA QSL number 200 in 2008. My best QSL year since I started DX-ing back in 1970. I guess I can say thank you to the SDR IQ receivers for this good result:-) And, to the very successful AND3 DX-expedition.

WGNS was a station we heard on 1450 during AND3. A lot of work by Jan Alvestad and others to solve this one. (Have to mention Jari Savolainen who came up with WGNS as a possible solution). The ID was: "Your local news authority since 1947, we are 14-50 AM..." Scott Walker verified that they use this ID and he also mention the name of the announcer. Thanks to all!

An other great logging on Andoya during AND3 is WRSA. This ESPN Radio station had a very clear ID on top of the hour one morning. Mike Raymond, Chief Engineer (N1IRN) verified my report today with a informative e-mail. WRSA was running 107 watts when we heard them, into a 51.8 meters series feed vertical, omnidirectional pattern. Thank you for a great QSL Mike!
WLIS had a good signal one morning on AND3 with it's dual ID for WLIS and WMRD 1150. Nice e-mail from Don DeCesare verified my report. Don was Vice President at CBS in 1994 and had full road pass during the Olympic Winter Games at Lillehammer in 1994!

I have heard KTOE 1420 several times but never received any verification until today. Chief Engineer Scott Schmeling verified my report with a friendly e-mail. KTOE was heard with a good signal during AND3. Now they are in the process of rebuilding the directional antenna system so we will next year hear if that do anything to the possibility to hear KTOE.
