On November 11, 2019 there were good medium-wave conditions towards the Far East. At 1440 kHz I could then receive JOWF STV Radio from Sapporo, Japan with a clear identification: STV Radio – JOWF 1440 kHz. I wrote my reception report to the address I found in the WRTH 2019: The STV radio Broadcasting Co Ldt,1-1 Nishi 8 chome, Kita 1-jo, Chuo-ku, Sapporo 060-8705, JAPAN.
The only LPAM station in Sweden “TheAsphalt Telegraph” is back on the air. Now they have a license again, now at Europe’s best medium wave frequency, 1494 kHz, with no stations at all on the air in EU when Radio Moldova is off air between 20.00 UTC-03.55 UTC when they open again.This is the most noise-free frequency in all of Europe, so is a chance that the 300 watts can reach the stateside! Reception reports are welcome at email@example.com.
The last 2 days I received some nice NAVTEX messages. The most notable was from the coastal station JNR Moji from southern Japan! I used Beverage antennas.
I received a nice E-QSL from the Dutch pirate station Radio Blauwe Koe. I heard his transmitter in the evenings on 1634 kHz with a Dutch folk music program! You can find the address on the QSL!
Ampli4 Radio transmits on 1224 kHz with a power of 100 watts from Damwoude, Friesland in the north of the Netherlands!
I received a very nice e-mail confirmation in response of my reception report to LRA36 Radio Nacional. On October 20, 2019 they had a special broadcast on 15476 kHz for their 40th anniversary from ‘Base Esperanza’ on the Argentinian sector on Antarctica. The reception was very difficult here in Europe. Hardly anything could be heard, but on my Perseus receiver I saw a clear signal from their transmitter. The 17 meter long T2FD antenna gave the best results!
On November 02, 2019 around 17.00 UTC I received on 14230 kHz Special SSTV Station ‘VE2PEACE’ in the Scottie mode.
Saint Pierre and Miquelon, officially the Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France, situated in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean near the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
