MW season kicks on and some QSLs

September 02, 2014 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening, QSL

MW season started! I started mediumwave monitoring with my remote station one week ago. Unfortunately there was a magnetic storm last week, so propagation has not been very good (before I started, others had heard some USA). Despite of poor signals some interesting stations has been heard here in Pori. I expect some good openings later this week.
