Avainsana: Pirate Hunt 2016

Easter Pirate DX

Today, early wake-up with a country song on local radio, and DJ asking if the morning could ever had a bad start with another country song… She was more than right. Turning on my Icom the next station appeared to be CFRX 6070 kHz from Canada. Unfortunately no country, as the format is ”Newstalk”. I have never before heard this station, so the dipole seems to work properly.

The latest BC QSL came from AIR Port Blair after many attempts. The simple e-mail verification brought verified DX country #140 (Andaman and Nicobar Islands). In the meantime it was my BC QSL #1000, based on FDXA’s QSL competion rules. It’s time to celebrate a bit!

Because of Pirate Hunt 2016 competition during Easter, organized by our local club, the personal logs will be published this time on our forum

Need hints for Pirate DX? Have a look on article (only in Finnish, sorry)

Latest free radio reply came from Ronnie AM, whose 4 watt test transmission I was tuning in.

Greetings from Emmen
