CKSQ Stettler AB 1400

Very nice email tonight from Brent Young, Program Director, confirming my October 22nd 2005 (KONG13) reception of Q14. Once named "Cat Country", but not any more according to Brent. "There is a plan to 'flip' Q14 to FM in the next year or so, but we do need approval first", he says, and adds: "Q91 will not be flipped to FM, it has too strong a signal to abandon".
Thanks Brent, for giving me my QSL no. 70 from a North American 'graveyard' station.

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.

CMDJ Radio Reloj, Guantánamo 960

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 ...
