WWBC Cocoa FL 1510

I was examining 1510 for signals from WWSM on October 17. I didn't hear the Pennsylvania station, but at 2238z a Christian station surfaced with a clear “… 1510 AM WWBC and 102.7 …” identification. Today I received a very nice email from Ray Kassis, President.
WWBC is a daytimer, and Ray writes: "WWBC transmitts with 50 KW daytime and 25 KW two hours before local sunset. I believe you heard the station running 25 KW".
The station was heard from the listening post at Kalvøya, Smøla. Thanks for a most welcome verification, Ray! And thanks to Arild Skalmeraas for crucial information.

WAEL Radio 600, Mayagüez 600

I heard WAEL Radio 600 AM for the first time on October 2, 2005 - a great weekend for DX at Smøla. I had given up receiving a verification, but a reminder last night gave me this pleasant surprise this morning!
Things have happened to this station since I heard them, allow me to quote mr. Luis Pirallo: "Esa frecuencia hace casi tres años pertenece a otra compañia (Univision). Las nuevas siglas (call letters) son W Y E L. Nosotros seguimos operando una estacion de radio FM (WAEL FM) en la frecuencia de 96.1 mhz."
