Title: VLF station Alexanderson Alternator to go on the air
Post by: Fansome on June 16, 2008, 1956 UTC
From the UDXF mailing list:

This was the ORIGINAL CW (Continuous Wave) the Alexanderson Alternator.
and it is going on the air as it does every year!
 
The 0900Z 29 June 2008 will be the most likely to be heard in North
America.  Station in the North American Arctic regions (VE2, etc)
might be able to hear the later transmission also.
