QSLs: WSTX for a new country!

December 26, 2013 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening, QSL

Some new ones:

600. HJJM Radio Auténtica, Cali 660 kHz

Radio Auténtica is not the most common Colombian, only heard it twice this season on this interesting frequency. They replied in one day via Facebook. My 600th QSL!

601. CFCB Corner Brook NL 570 kHz

This 1kW transmitter has been heard regularly during the NA openings opf this season. I sent my report to Richard King, who confirmed my VOCM receptions earlier and he verified my report quickly.

602. WCCO Minneapolis MN 830 kHz

At my QTH the most common US station in this channel is WCRN, but I was able to hear WCCO in November. I sent an email to their address mentioned on website (newstips@..) and by my suprise I got a quick replay from Colin Smith (Anchor/Reporter) and then later another replay from Adam Carter (News Anchor/Reporter). With Adam I wrote few times – as usual we were talking about icehockey (Minnesota Wild)!

603. WSTX St. Croix VI 970 kHz

I have heard this station from US Virgin Islands 3 times this season. My earlier email was not answered. I found the owner of the station, Kevin A. Rames, and emailed my report to his company’s email address – he is an attorney. Kevin replied quickly with a nice email and said that WSTX AM and FM (Caledonia Communications) is a family owned radio station. He is planning to give the radio station to his son when he graduates. This email was a nice suprise and was a new country verified.
