WFHR Wisconsin Rapids 1320 - Serving Central Wisconsin for 70 Years

A few days ago I went thru some of my ENOX19 -files from back in last December. I came across a new station for me on 1320 kHz. It was WFHR that came clear and loud just on the top of the hour 24:00 our local time. The station ID was followed by the CBS news. Unfortunately the signal faded away after a while and came never back in this night.

WFHR's CE verified my report and MP3 quickly within an hour with a complete QSL -email. In addition to the confirmation he also mentioned: "On a personal note, I lived 18 years in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, there were many Finnish families who immigrated to the area 100-150 years ago to work in the iron and copper mines. Ahonen is a very familiar surname, the family I knew operated the local sawmill and lumber yard."
