KVBR Brainerd MN 1340 Verification

September 26, 2007 was a good day for Minnesota stations in Kongsfjord. KVBR surfaced on top of the hour with a rather weak, but clear identification. I received an email verie this evening. Heard on an SDR-IQ. My 25th Minnesota verie.

Glad you heard KVBR on 1340 KHz. As you know, it is one of the six "local" frequencies in the US and has MANY stations competing for your ears. There are four 1340 KHz stations in the state of Minnesota, USA. As a broadcast engineer, I helped build the station in 1964 and have been involved in it most of the time since. The station runs only 1000 watts into a relatively short antenna, which is only 75 degrees of electrical height. This favors skywave radition to some degree. Keep listening!
