A long and very nice email from Bob Newberry, Engineering Director, confirmed my December 30, 2009 reception of WERC. This station was heard on my southern antenna (Smøla). We've had temparatures around -20 degrees Celsius here in Trondheim this week, but it's very cold also in Alabama according to Bob: "We are expecting 1 inch of snow and a very low temperature of about -10 C tonight. That is cold for our area! We usually see only a few flakes of snow each year. Keep scanning the dial Arnstein!"
Thank you, Bob, and stay warm!

In his email signature Bob includes: "A man that never quits is never defeated"
