CM.. Radio Reloj 1020

The WRTH 2007 lists no QTH for the Radio Reloj transmitter on 1020, so I don't know where to pinpoint my wall map. Also this transmitter was heard on March 11th at the island of Smøla.

Finally a QSL again! Also this time it was señor Isidro Betancourt who confirmed my reception of a Radio Reloj station. The station was heard on March 11th at Smøla, the DX paradise island west of mid Norway. I suppose this was the 10 kW transmitter in Guantánamo, and not the 1 kW in Cienfuegos. But of course I can't know for sure ...
