I copy this station every night here in North Carolina. Covid 19 info broadcasts. I just found this news bit...

"WQFG689, the Hudson County, NJ Travelers' Information Service station on 1710 kHz AM has been granted Special Temporary Authority to increase power from 10 to 100 watts for 90 days"

Right now at the temporary listening post = Icom IC-7610, 130ft end fed sloping random wire into manual tuner.
