QSL FROM ‘JCG – TOKYO COAST GUARD RADIO’

Apparently Tokyo Coast Guard is not easy to log into DSC on 8414.5 kHz! It took about 5 days before I found a single log among all the others! In the personal letter that I received, along with a detailed and NICE! QSL card, it was stated that they really appreciate reception reports!

AWARD FROM SPECIAL SSTV EVENT STATION ‘CB6I’ FROM THE LOCATION CHILE

Every day, from early in the morning to sometimes late in the evening, the AOR receiver is tuned on the SSTV frequency 14230 kHz. And now and then you will find something special in the logs. Like this event station CB6I from Chile, which got through particularly well that evening. I couldn’t resist sending a report by email. For that I was rewarded with a great award!

Below some SSTV pictures that I have received:

On Easter weekend of 1964, Radio Caroline went on air for the first time from the MV Fredericia in the North Sea. Now 57 years later, the station is still in the air on medium wave. For me an opportunity to congratulate them on Easter Sunday and also reward them with a detailed reception report of Radio Caroline North’s monthly special broadcast on 648 kHz. The medium wave transmitter is now located at Orford on the South East coast of the UK. It has a very good reception in my area: Radio Caroline 648 kHz.mp3. The report was confirmed after 3 hours with a nice detailed QSL card and a friendly personal letter!

QSL OF THE DRM BROADCAST OF KTWR ON THE ISLAND GUAM

On Sunday, February 21, 2021, I attempted to receive KTWR’s DRM broadcasts from the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. I used the program “Dream” connected to my Perseus SDR receiver. However, the signal was too weak to constantly hear the audio. Anyway, at KTWR they were very happy with my detailed reception report and especially for the SNR history! I received a personal thank you from the KTWR Chief Engineer for that! It was rewarded with a nice E-QSL! In the images below you will also find the hours and frequencies of the DRM broadcasts from KTWR!
