U S A. 7490.03-AM, UT Sat June 17 at 0003, WBCQ with `Allan Weiner
Worldwide` --- he starts off saying his fingers are sore from twisting
dials, working on the #5 transmitter, a ``10-ton monster`` (really?) which
is installed in the same building as the backup steam engine, and to be
used on ``Nifty 32-50``. It seems someone else had done a lot of work on
it over winter, but still needs more. He`s tweeting photos of the process;
all WBCQ SW transmitters are used, converted from MW.

0022 takes a call from Mark Sills in Dallas with an update on George
Thurman`s condition in Houston: terrible injury, real serious, brain
