KFWB Los Angeles CA 980

It took Program Director Andy G. Ludlum less than an hour to confirm my 15 October 2007 (KONG17) reception of KFWB News 980. He's a HAM himself (KI6NON) and has a very good understanding of the DX hobby.
Thanks for the confirmation and for the logo, Andy!

Radio Live, Tauranga 1107

In a letter received today, 15 days after I sent my reception report by air mail, Gwendolyn Woodney confirms my reception of Radio Live, Tauranga 1107. This station was heard well in Kongsfjord on 17 October 2007. She writes: "Thank you for the letter and CD that you sent us. It has created quite a buzz around the office. It is amazing that you can pick up RadioLive in Kongsfjord, when we can't even get it in our building!"

V6MP The Cross Radio, Pohnpei 4755,25

Roland at the Pacific Missionary Aviation in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia, today confirmed my 15 October 2007 reception of V6MP The Cross Radio. The station was heard with a superb quality one of the days during the KONG17 DXpedition. The signal was so good that I don't think they were on the air every day. And Roland comments: "Our SW has been off the air for the last 6 weeks, because we are changing the antenna".
Early January I also received this nice QSL card.
Thank you, Roland, for my first QSL from Micronesia!
