The 25th of January this year I had a pipeline of signals from Virginia. First I noticed WHKT -1650 with almost Q5 signals, on 1370 the pearl WSHV South Hill came thru with its slogan "Soul of the Southside". After a hint from my friend Torolf Johnsson I then found on 1140 " Your news weather and ...station, this is 50 000 watts...WRVA Richmond" A long sought-after station finally captured!
The station has a long history and was the city´s first radiostation back in 1925. Richmond, the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia with a population 1.2 million is situated at James River which forms in the Appalachian Mountains.
The station is not an easy catch, due to CBI and WQBA that often occupies the QRG.
