QSL FROM THE 2019 CHRISTMAS BROADCAST FROM THE WORLD HERITAGE GRIMETON RADIO STATION ‘SAQ’

On December 24, 2019 the traditional Christmas transmission took place with the old Alexanderson alternator SAQ at World Heritage Grimeton Radio Station on 17,2 kHz. For this broadcast, that happens in the morse code I used a Beverage antenna of 385 meters long in the direction of 40 °! (without Balun!!). I made from my Perseus receiver a YouTube movie from the official broadcast:  SAQ 17.2 kHz 24.12.19 – 08.00 UTC.  A very nice special Christmas QSL card was sent for those broadcasts!

MEDIUM WAVE QSL FROM ‘RADIO THAILAND’

On December 10, 2020, I could hear Radio Thailand on 891 kHz just before the end of the broadcasts at midnight in Thailand. In this recording during my observation of 891 kHz you clearly hear after 7 seconds the identification “…..Thini Sathani Whithayu….. “.The broadcast ended with the vocal version of the Royal Anthem of Thailand and the transmitter switching off.

In addition to the qsl card, I also received the latest program schedule for the International broadcasts and very interesting information about the history of Radio Tahailand!

QSL FROM NRK’S OFFICIAL LAST DAY TRANSMISSION FROM INGØY LW SITE IN NORWAY

NRK’s LW transmitter 153 kHz in Ingøy was switched off for good on Sunday 1 December at 23.06 UTC after 18 years of broadcast. NRK was interested in as many reports as possible of this last transmission and therefore they issued a special QSL card “Last Day Transmission “. Reception reports could be sent to NRK Publicumsservice by E-mail to info@nrk.no or to finnmark@nrk.no. NRK was difficult to receive here because the 153 kHz was also used by a strong station in Romania. I was lucky  to hear them on this last day broadcast for 4 minutes around 18.00 UTC.QSL NRK LW 153 kHz Last day0003
