Fumiaki Minematsu reports how he and a friend picked up WBZ 1030 from two different points in Japan this past November. With recordings of their catches.
The 50-kW station has its active transmitter in Hull, where it offers unique local reception as well:
Mike Carter reports:
WBZ puts out a great signal. I’ve listened to it from Europe when I was in the Navy. People in Hull where the transmission towers are hear it without a radio. I once heard it coming from an oil tank in a basement there.
Used to dispatch at PD in Hull. Had a woman who used to call because she could hear ‘BZ coming from her dental work.
