New QSLs this week and more log of the week

September 08, 2013 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening, Utility radio

Since the last QSL-post few new ones have arrived.

563. Ceský rozhlas 2 954 kHz
This was reported as I found out that I don’t have CRo home service QSL. Nice QSL card was in the mail in one month. I think that Ceský rozhlas doesn’t have any local programmes on MW. With QSLs from Radio Dechovka and Country Radio currently no more stations to QSL from Czech.

564. TWR Parakou 1566 kHz
This one was the first QSL from Benin. Email confirmation from TWR.

565. WBCQ Monticello ME 9330 kHz
These guys don’t QSL via email. So I sent them SAE and IRC. QSL-card arrived via mail in one month. This station is audible probably every night.

566. CFRY Portage la Prairie MB 920 kHz
Heard during the great condx of January. Program director Ryan Simpson replied in 2 days. MJ heard this last night in Vaasa!

SDJ Stockholm Radio, Stavsnäs 1674 kHz
This utility station replied quickly even on Saturday. They also sent later a traditional QSL card via mail.

Propagation has been very good after the 2nd of September (which was the peak of condx I suppose). Some highlights found from the files:

North America

1140 7.9. 0200- USA: WQBA Miami FL.

610 2.9. 0230- CLM: HJKL La Carinosa, Bogotá.
700 2.9. 0300- EQA: HCRS2 R Sucre, Guayaquil. [699.993].
710 2.9. 0332- CLM: HJNX R Red, Medellin. Big split about [709.905], music px and ID: “Radio Red de RCN …”. Tnx to HK for solving this. I was hoping for more rare catch!
740 3.9. 0300- B: ZYH446 R Sociedade da Bahia, Salvador, BA. Suprsise during these condx (and antenna) [740.007].

920 6.9. 0202- PRG: ZP1 R Nacional del Paraguay, Asunción. New country for me! Audible quite long with talk programme.

1110 3.9. 0028- VEN: YVQT R Carupano, Carupano. New one for me, no reports on OLL during the last years. Used to be common.

France Bleu Elsass

August 15, 2013 By: admin Category: DX-listening

536. France Bleu Elsass 1278 kHz
This local programme is easy to hear and I think that they send local announcements all day. It was a bit difficult to find a good email address to them but I was lucky with f/up and Pierre Nuss replied to my email in one day. I am still looking for QSL of France Bleu 107.1 Paris 864 kHz. Last winter I heard also France Info Lyon 603 kHz with local programme but no reply either.

830 WCRN Worcester MA

August 13, 2013 By: admin Category: DX-listening

My follow up round continues:

530. WCRN Worcester MA 830 kHz
I heard WCRN in December and probably in January too. Tony Chavez confirmed my report in 5 minutes by short email message. An hour later Chris Thompson, General Sales Manager also sent a confirmation email.

QSLs from Canada and Ukraine

August 13, 2013 By: admin Category: DX-listening

Few new QSLs have arrived. Now the consecutive number tells the number of stations confirmed by SDXL Rank rules.

528. CIWW Ottawa ON 1310 kHz
On last season I could hear CIWW 1310 quite often with “13-10 News” slogan. Suprisingly they replied to my f/up for my reception of December very quickly. V/s was Jonathan McGill (News Anchor, Editor and Reporter) who wrote: It is amazing how you were able to pick up the radio transmission. Perhaps the atmosphere was clear that evening and the signal was able to travel far!

529. Ukrainske Radio UR3 “Kultura” 1431 kHz
I sent a f/up report for this station as I didn’t have Ukrainian national radio Home Service confirmed. I have a QSL from Radio Kiev on Shortwaves – that time Kiev was still a part of Soviet Union. Now they mailed me a printed QSL-card in 12 days.

1431 Ukrainske Radio 300912
