Pretty cool QSL: CKOC Hamilton, ON-1150

ImageA couple of days ago, I received an e-mail from Ted Yates on CKOC, who confirmed my reception of the station in November 2012. Ted writes:

Hello Hans,

Thank you for your reception report. This email is to confirm that the signal you received on your portable receiver from Norway is that of 1150 CKOC AM radio station in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

I would also like to thank you for your very interesting background information.

1150 CKOC is Canada’s oldest operating radio station. CKOC first went on the air in 1922 and has been serving Hamilton and Southern Ontario ever since. Our music format is Great Oldies, Classic Hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Best regards,

Ted Yates”

Not only did Ted confirm my reception, he also presented me with an audio clip, where he mentioned me and my report in one of his shows on the station. The audio clip can be monitored by clicking this link.

The audio clip with my reception if CKOC 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.
