Mayday, mayday!

April is (hopefully) the last winter month and May should be the first summer month! There are already signs of summer 🙂

So it’s time to switch off AM radios and turn to FM. Actually the Sporadic E season 2017 has been opened in South-Western Finland already in the end of April, so there she comes, once again!

A bunch of reports are still unsent, because of work, running from car dealer to another, garden work and other secondary duties. Here are still some QSLs from ”Antique Modulation”:

DX COUNTRY #145: Canal A de Radio Nacional de Angola 4950 kHz

FREE RADIO QSL #215: Radio Saturnus (HOL)

FREE RADIO QSL #216: Pirate Station Klabautermann (D)

QSL of the month: October 2016

QSL of the month is a full data PDF letter from Spirit Radio based in Ireland. Unfortunately reception location is incorrect – no remote reception, no SDR, no dxpeditions – only home DX here 🙂 Also the time indicated is local Irish Summer Time, not UTC. Anyway it’s rare to get such a QSL in these days.

QSLs of the month – June, July, August, September

Backlog with these QSLs of the month, but here are some examples of recent replies from radio stations, which I could nominate as ”QSL of the month”. Of course almost every received QSL does make my day, but these selected QSLs are verifying a rare catch, they are filling all the criteria of a perfect QSL with every single detail marked on it, they arrive by snail mail which is pretty rare nowadays – or simply they are more than an oneliner ”Yes that’s us” -message.

June – Galgalatz 91.8 MHz Israel


July – VMW Wiluna WA 6230 kHz Australia


August – Svitle Radio Emmanuel 67.82 MHz Ukraine


September – Radio Punto Zero Tre Venezie Tarvisio.Fm 90.1 MHz Italy

July-August 2016

Although June was not a perfect FMDX month, then July was a total flop. Fortunately August has been a bit more active so far..

FMDX 07 and 08-2016

The evenings are getting darker and the interest turns to AM. Some nice TA-catches on 49 mb in the mornings, no reason to forget Iberian peninsula and it’s numerous MW stations and of course (listening) free radio will be fun, in case there is no tropospheric ducting.

The holiday season will finish in Central Europe, so it is time to send some FM-reports again. The goal is to have 100 FM QSL’s for this season  – 25 to go!
