Re: Longwave station "LQ"

Given the time frame, maybe it was the disco simulcast on WXKS-AM?

Actually he was listening to Lyndy, the compass locator (a specialized type
of NDB used to mark the outer limit of an airport approach procedure) for
runway 22L at Logan.  It's 4.4 miles from the approach end of the runway and
transmits LQ in Morse at 382kHz.

The actual transmitter is located at the Lynnway entrance to GE.  You can
see the longwire there.  It's co-located with a UHF fan marker that is now
more commonly used to mark the location.
