"LQ" Update......(was :Longwave station "LQ")

     I have contacted the FAA regarding
non-directional beacon (NDB) station "LQ" (382
kHz/Lynnfield, MA).  The station was taken out of
service last week for technical improvements and
should return to the air at a later date.  The
Transcribed Weather Information Broadcasts (better
known as "TWIB's" are still be available from "TUK"
(194 kHz/Nantucket) as both "LQ" and "TUK" get the
same feed from Connecticut).
     So.... "LQ" is down but most assuredly not "out".
 That 100 watt beacon will live to see another day!!
