I understand this station enjoys some popularity on line because of it's throwback format. Sometimes they run ads from the 1960s aired on the original incarnation. You can get a new car for 2-3k but that makes it just as unaffordable then as today.
Absolutely pounds my qth at 20k day.
Here's your virtual Transoceanic G model receiving from its excellent loop antenna located on the cover door

I didn't realize their antenna was directional, seems like a lot of their signal on 1310 kHz is sent to the Atlantic (and points east!)
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers
