    My hat’s off to him. If the FCC grants a license, godspeed to Jim. This may be the future of SW broadcasting

    Sorry, but wasn’t this the station that returned it’s license to the FCC just recently, or am I mistaken?

      How can that possibly be a 50KW transmitter (minimum power required on SW in the USA). And isn’t electrical wiring in a commercial building supposed to be in conduit? The rhombic is so low to the ground it almost looks like and maybe works mostly works as a kind of NVIS antenna.
