First aussies in the log…

The last two weekends, I have been out listening in “the bush”. During these two occasions, I tried a new QTH on the mainland side in Vardø community. In some aspects this new QTH is a bit better, since it’s giving a bit more room for my three BOG’s. Some rather interesting DX has been heard during the last two weekends; on the 23rd of September, 5RN ABC Adelaide on 729 KHz was finally in the log. Two days ago, on the 29th, 6PNN ABC Newsradio, Busselton, Western Australia was heard on 1152 KHz in the afternoon with BBC programming. Together with that, Radio Nepal in Kathmandu was a great surprise on 792 KHz in the afternoon on the 29th of September.

I have a lot of Afedri-recordings to investigate as a result of the latter DX-sessions, and will be getting back to you all with more news later on. I’ll be out in the bush also during the upcoming weekend, and hopefully there will be some new cathes worth to mention. I’m still waiting for that first real opening into North America, hi!




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.
