Two fast QSL’s!

Today I’ve been writing a bunch of reception reports, and as usual I send my reports via e-mail to save paper and rainforest, and not least to save time for the recepients of my reports. A “snailmail” report always generates more work in the receiving end, which I beleive affects the QSL-rate negatively. Anyhow,  my e-mail reports resulted in two very fast replies from KTCN Twin Cities MN-1130 and CKJH Melfort SK-750.

Dear Mr. Ostnell,

This is Nick Ehrenberg writing, and I am the Digital News Director for Twin Cities News Talk (KTCN) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am writing to confirm that your audio clip contains content from our station, currently transmitting at 1130 KHz and broadcasting at 50,000 watts during the day and 25,000 watts at night.

This frequency is one of the oldest in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, and has broadcast various radio formats since its founding in 1923. Currently, the station broadcasts news and political talk programming, and also partners with an FM sports talk station (KFXN-FM 100.3) for coverage of local Minnesota sports teams.

We at KTCN are excited to learn that our station can reach as far as Norway! Thanks very much for sharing your report with us!

The audioclip of my reception of KTCN is found here.

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.
