Some inactivity…

Well, I haven’t been writing for a while due to extremely poor conditions, a heavy workload and some business trips. I will, however, try to do some updates during the weekend. A few new QSL’s has arrived and I’ve been testing some *very* portable equipment the last few days. More about all this very soon! Have patience, friends!

Edit 26th of March; Ok, folks… looks like it will take one or two days more before I get time to do my updates, due to some unexpected family matters.

73!

KAGV Big Lake AK-1110

A tentative QSL on a tentative report? Well, a couple of days ago I got a nice e-mail from Brian Blair, the Interim Station Manager on KAGV, as response on my tentative report of the station. I was quite sure that it was KAGV that I received on 1110 KHz, since there was pretty good signals on several AK-stations that particular morning and Brian, who also seems to be pretty sure about my reception of KAGV, writes:

“Dear Hans,

Thank you for your reception report including the audio attachment.

I was unable to understand any of the words of the audio. However, given the time of day of your reception and the voice, I am reasonably sure you were hearing KAGV 1110 KHZ. The voice sounds like James McDonald, the speaker on the Walk in the Word broadcast http://www.walkintheword.com. We air this program weekday evenings at 11:30PM and the broadcast runs 26 minutes.

Again, thank you for your report and for sharing information about yourself and your hobby.

Brian”

I feel a lot of gratitude when I receive an answer like this one. This means that someone at the station really took time to deal with my reception report. Thanks, Brian! Until I get a better reception of KAGV, I will count in this one as “sort of” a QSL.

73’s!
