There are still people out there DXing and part-time Connecticut and full-time Vermont meteorologist Tyler Jankoski is one of them.

It’s why WTIC-AM’s tagline used to be “The Pulse of New England.”

Decades ago, Jankoski as a “DXer,” or “distance listener” would have sent a postcard to WTIC’s program director identifying what he heard on the air and at what exact time and the program director would confirm and return the card for Jankoski’s DXing scrap book.
