Sun’s coming back…

ImageMuch better weather today, than it has been for several weeks. The sun has been over the horizon for about two weeks, but it hasn’t been visible due to ice-fog. This picture was taken from my work at 10:40 UTC today. Note the 5m fiberglass pole, to the right of the chapel, housing my phased HDLA-loops. You can click on the picture to see it better.

Some interesting african stations on shortwave today; Radio Télé Candip on 5066,3 KHz and Dunamis BC, Kampala on 4750 KHz during the late afternoon. More about these two loggings later on. Right now Radio Congo is quite good on 6115 KHz.

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.
