I live in Argentina. In the 80 's my father brought an Ampex tape 
recorder in the USA. Before leaving N.Y. to return to Argentina, he 
recorded 10 tapes with WQRX FM classic music. That's why I became 
acquainted with the station. It has always been very difficult to hear 
classical music in the radio in my country, although in my 1.000.000 
city we have regularly 5 classical live performances per week.

I have a home page in Internet, where I have a direct link to WKSU and 
WQXR. Some of my friend log to WQXR though this page:


Another interesting page I have is:

"Real-Time F2-Layer Critical Frequency Map foF2"


Can you guess the music included in the page? (you need Flash)
