TIS Station WQFG689 DX'ed.

Must be doing something right with that raised Windom. Heard this TIS station 11/18/2018, 06.26UTC at an S3,   https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/General_Menu_Reports/engineering_search_out.cfm    NJ accents and all with loop on winter survival and landline telephone audio quality. I haven't heard a TIS station this good via DX in over 20 years. UPDATE: Gee, your tax $$$$ at work. Sometime that above link works, and the other 1/2 the time it errors. So, try this at the TIS FCC site,      https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/travelers-information-stations-search      , then select NJ, Single FREQ, and 1710kHz. You might have to do it more than once. Gee, we're paying for this?

I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
