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.
