DZAS “Agapay ng Sambayanan”-702 KHz

One of many stations received during last weekend’s listening at the Smelror QTH, was DZAS, a FEBC broadcaster on 702 KHz, located in Valenzuela, the Philippines. Well, WRTH say’s the station is located in Valenzuela, while Asiawaves say’s it’s located in Bocaue. In any case, both places are within the Metro Manila area. I heard the station at around 13:50 UTC, October 5, while they were broadcasting the “Heartline” phone-in programme, focusing on relationships. A few days ago, I e-mailed a reception report with an audio clip of what I received, and a few minutes ago I received an answer from Marc A. Deles, who is the Operations Manager at the station:

“Hi Hans,

I appreciate your effort of sending us your reception report. Yes, I acknowledge that it is our program Heartline, a telephone counseling program that deals with relationships. The hosts are Atty. Winnie Salumbides and Carmen Go Vargas at 9:30pm-11:30pm Philippine time.

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.
