Logan Airport TIS 1650

#1 Post by WS1K » 26 Sep 2017 13:33

Getting my low band antenna in shape for the upcoming NDB chasing season and I found that MassPort has the Logan Airport TIS transmitter back on the air. It's been MIA for at least 2 years. WQBQ732 1650 kHz AM. Just transmitting the ID and brief terminal information.

They actually came back on in April (I first noted them back on, the morning of the 10th, a little after 5am...though they could have already been on up to a day or two before)—but, up until a week or so ago, they were just //NWS.
I donʼt know if they moved the xmtr, reduced power, or what, but they donʼt seem as strong as they were in their previous incarnation(s).

OK that explains the NWS transmission I had heard a few moths back. I never listened long enough to it to see if it ID'd so I had no idea who it was. I can't remember what the strength was previously but it's fairly respectable down here. Thanks.
