KXZZ Lake Charles LA-1580

Not many stations from Louisiana to be found in my QSL collection. Actually, until yesterday the Great State of Louisiana was only represented by WWLkxzz-1580-870. However, yesterday I received a nice e-mail verification from Chief Engineer Greg Davis on KXZZ, who confirmed my reception of the station in February 2016 in AIH. KXZZ is a pretty scarce catch on the frequency. The 1 kW transmitter is serving the Lake Charles area in southwestern Louisiana with a sport’s format, affiliated to CBS Sport’s Radio. Nice one!

CFAR Flin Flon MB-590

…not really a big surprise, right? Well, a couple of minutes after receiving the QScfar-590L from CJAR-1240, Dianne Russel also confirmed my reception of CFAR-590. This is also a pretty difficult catch, even for us up here in the Scandinavian Arctic. 590 kHz is usually totally dominated by KHAR in Anchorage, but sometimes the propagation on the mediumwave band gets very selective, favouring stations from a quite limited area. As this morning in AIH, when both CJAR and CFAR was received simultaneously. Quite amazing, actually…

So, there you have it! A pretty nice “double of more or less scarce canadian AM-stations”.


CJAR The Pas MB-1240

Due to odd working hours, I haven’t been able to update the blog the last days – but, one who’s waiting for something good is always waiting too long, right? Anyway, by the end of last week I received a couple of verifications, definetely belonging into the cathcjar-1240egory “more or less scarce canadian AM-stations”. The first one came from CJAR The Pas, Manitoba, which is found on 1240 kHz. CJAR was logged in the beginning of February last year, during my AIH55 expedition. Dianne Russell is the station manager for CJAR and also the sister station CFAR, both owned by Arctic Radio, and serving remote communities in northern Manitoba. Dianne answered by reception report, and confirmed my reception of CJAR with a very friendly e-mail.

A very welcomed QSL indeed!

KXQZ Wendell ID-1340

A couple of days ago, I received a nice e-mail  from kxqz-1340
Bill Peske at KXQZ, confirming my reception of
the station in AIH, february 2nd. Yet another graveyard station added to my  collection, and a pretty good one as well. Just a few weeks left now, and I’ll be on my way to my next expedition to AIH!


KIML Gillette WY-1270

A very nice “Pre-Christmas-QSL” from KIML-1270, kiml-1270
which was heard with a nice legal ID, February 7 in
Aihkiniemi. v/s Terry Michael, Program Director at the station, answered my follow up report with a verification e-mail. Wyoming-station #5, so it was indeed a very welcomed QSL!

KFH Wichita KS-1240

Yet another nice graveyard-station found it’s kfh-1240
way into my QSL collection. KFH-1240, which was heard the very last day of the AIH55-expedition in February. Tony Duesing, the PD for both KFH and KNSS, replied my report with a short e-mail verification.


KJCR Billings MT-1240

KJCR was heard Februakjcr-1240ry 7, which was the very last day of the AIH55-expedition. A report with a very nice audio clip, containing the station’s legal ID, was sent last week. Yesterday evening, I received a nice e-mail reply from Roy Brown, the Executive Director at the station, who confirmed my reception of this very nice addition to my Graveyard-collection.

KEXO Grand Junction CO-1230

Another very welcomed addition to the Graveyard-collection. KEXkexo-1230O-1230 was received in the beginning of February, during the AIH55-expedition. A number of reports and follow up’s was sent to the station, but no response until co-DX:er Ole Forr pointed me in the right direction. Yesterday evening, I received a very nice reply from Ed Chandler at the station, who confirmed my reception of Western Colorado’s Sports Leader. Nice. Colorado-station #16, and USA-station #300!

KXTL Butte MT-1370

KXTL-1370 was heard in Komagvær with a good signal
November 2nd last year, and v/s Chris Ackerman kxtl-1370
replied with a nice e-mail verification on my follow
up, that was sent two days ago.

“Southwest Montana’s Talk Radio Leader” is a station that has been heard on a number of occasions, both in KOMA and AIH. Montana-station #6 bagged and boxed, and I’m pretty sure there will be more of them to find next time in AIH.
