WBAA West Lafayette IN 920 kHz

Although conditions were not very good on ENOX28 I managed to pick up some interesting new stations for me. One of them was WBAA in West Lafayette, Indiana. It is a Purdue University station and its programming consists of jazz and classical music and Public Radio programs.
General Manager verified my report with a kind email. He told that my report was the third one from Finland during the last four years. He also mentioned: "WBAA will celebrate its 90th anniversary on April 4, 1922. In the early years, even at low power (500 watts...we're 5000 daytime now and 1000 directional (to the north) at night) it wasn't unusual to get reception report from as far as New Zealand, according to information in our archives."
