KRKO Everett, WA-1380

Today I experienced a new personal “QSL-record” on a reception report that I’ve sent. Andrew Skotdal on KRKO only needed 12 minutes to reply with a confirmation of my reception report sent by e-mail, and I was also promised to receive a QSL-card via snailmail. This is my first BC-QSL in many years and the fastest reply that I’ve ever experienced.

Here’s two audio clips of my reception of KRKO Everett, WA-1380:

Clip 1, with a commercial for the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett.

Clip 2, with KRKO’s slogan “Fox Sports 13-80”.

Not much listening tonight, by the way. I went down to the local Pub Nordpol (The North Pole) and had a pizza instead. I just came back, and while walking home I observed a beautyful Aurora Borealis over Vardø. Not good for radio, but real “eye candy”. I took a few pictures but I don’t think they are any good, as I held my camera by hand and not mounted on a tripod.

Time for bed!


About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
