KDHL Faribault MN 920

KDHL had been on my list for a while, and finally I heard them on 22 November 2008, late in the morning. This was a very good day for DX'ing North Americans, and hopefully a lot of interesting stations are still to be found on my recordings from this day.

ZYJ455 Rádio Tupi, Rio de Janeiro 1280

A very nice and interesting letter in English confirmed my 7 September 2008 reception of Rádio Tupi:

"Dear Mr. Bue : best regards from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
I do confirm your reception of Radio Tupi in Norway, Trondheim City, while we broadcasted "Super Madrugada Tupi", with Fernando Sergio as the anchorman.

The reception is very good, indeed. Better than we pick at Downton Rio de Janeiro - Strong noise fields generated by the buildings, eletric lines, computers, cars, etc...

I am sendig to you some attachments: photos of Tupi-AM allowed daylight RF field, of our Harris DX-100 transmitter, of our two towers at the transmitter site, a reference map in the Google Maps and a Corcovado Mountain photo, with the statue of Christ Redemptor in the cume with the moon behind - it is not photoshop, it happens one day each year.

Brazil has around 1.500 AM stations and 2.500 FM stations as conventional stations and more than 5.000 LPFM - or "communitarian stations".

I hope these informations are helpfull for you and all we wish to you and your fammily a Happy Christmas and a Very Good New Year.

With our best regards,

Jose Claudio Barbedo(Formiga)
Technical Manager
Tupi Radio Network
Rio de Janeiro"

WKWF Key West FL 1600

As far as I can remember WKWF was the only North American heard among a lot of interesting Latin Americans during this fantastic DX week end at Smøla early September 2007.
"The mp3 of the audio signal was incredibly clear, and that's Scott Hamilton, our Program Director talking about the Key's Hurricane Guide. WKWF is a 24/7 sports radio station broadcasting with only 500 watts ERP omni-directional signal from just outside of Key West. [...] WKWF was the first radio station in the Florida Keys. The first broadcast aired in September 1945. I will try and put together more nostalgia about Key West radio and forward to our DX listeners." Thanks for the confirmation, Randall!

JO.. NHK-2 Okinawa 1602

This 0,1 kW JOAD relay station was heard with a fair signal during the station identification at 2220 JST on 22 October 2006. QSL card confirming this KONG15 reception was received today as well.

On 16 October 2006 JOAD har a good signal on 1125 during their local ID at 2220 JST, and today I received a perfect QSL card confirming this KONG15 reception. Reception report (reminder) in Japanese via the contact form on the NHK Okinawa home page 16 days ago worked well - this seems to be the safest way to get verifications from NHK stations these days. This was my MW QSL #40 from Japan.

I've just realized that I have been close to ignoring stations from Quebec for all these years, so now I have to try to catch as many as possible of them still on air. CHNC was captured on 27 September 2008 at Kalvøya, Smøla, by my remotely operated SDR-IQ.

"We’ve been operating as an online only station since 2003. Over the past four years, we’ve been working towards getting permission and funding for our AM broadcast. After several setbacks and delays, we were finally able to turn our 1kw transmitter on in September. As it stands, we are the only campus/university radio on AM in Montreal, though there are two others (at McGill University and Université de Montréal) on FM."

WBNS Columbus OH 1460

1460 The Fan is an excellent radio station with very friendly people. 23 October was the far best evening during KONG18, and one of the stations heard in Kongsfjord around local sunset in the US was WBNS on 1460.

Radio Samoa, Auckland 1593

Radio Samoa was heard on 1592,98 kHz on 15 October 2007 during the great New Zealand conditions we experienced on the KONG17 DXpedition. Radio Samoa broadcast for the Samoan Community in New Zealand, and its philosophy is: "a well informed community is an empowered community". The station broadcasts predominantly in the Samoan language with English commercials and music from time to time. They have a nice web at
My email probably didn't reach Radio Samoa (I might be wrong - read on), and my two reception reports via air mail didn't get much attention either. Late September I contacted Bryan Clark, who now has retired to his 'antenna farm' in Mangawhai, 110 km from Auckland. He said he would go to Auckland in November, and offered to bring my reception report and recording and see if he could locate the offices of the station.

Here is the very interesting email Bryen sent me yesterday: "I visited the broadcasting studios of Radio Samoa 1593AM on Friday. I located them in an old nondescript building in Mount Eden, an inner city suburb of Auckland, about 6km from where I am staying.
The administrative offices are located in South Auckland, about 25km south (this is where your original letter went to), and I thought my chances of finding a sympathetic staff member would be greater at an operational studio.There was minimal signage to direct me to the Radio Samoa studios but I could hear noise upstairs, so I climbed some stairs and found a large 1593AM sign plus some very small signs for Radio Southern Cross – I think this is an Asian language broadcaster that buys air time on 1593AM.
After tapping on a window, a Samoan man came out and I explained my mission to him. His English language skills were only average but he seemed interested, taking me into a small studio to play the CD recording I had made of your MP3 clips. Another technical person was in the studio (a European) and he said he was aware that the station had received some emailed reports from Europe in the past.
The music in your recordings was confirmed as Samoan, and as soon as he heard the spoken announcements he said, yes, that’s us!
I asked ‘Do you have a letterhead or car sticker or other station literature that we can write a short message of confirmation on?’ Unfortunately the answer was no, so the only option left was to get him to write a short statement on your own letter. I told him to keep the CD and reception report -he said he was sure that the station manager would be interested to hear the recording.
As a DXer, I was disappointed that I couldn't secure a better form of QSL for you, but the station and its niche ethnic audience are not wealthy. We return home tomorrow, so I will organise the mailing of your 'signed letter' later in the week."

Bryan scanned the letter and sent it by email as well, giving me one of the better QSLs from the great KONG17 DXpedition. Thank you very much, Bryan, for your efforts in helping a fellow DX-er. Anyone can learn a lot from this.

KARI Blaine WA 550

Previously unheard in the Nordic countries, according to KOJE, KARI was heard both by Bjarne Mjelde the day before KONG18 and by ENOX10 the day we left Kongsfjord. Therefore it was no big surprise, but anyhow a big pleasure, to find two KARI identifications during one hour of listening to my recordings from 25 October. I received an email today with a QSL letter attached. Thanks!

KBBO Selah WA 980

After KBBO - Talk 980 K-USA - was heard both on ENOX10 and AND3, I knew this station most likely was heard during KONG18 too. I didn't take too long on the 25 October recordings until I found them, and with info from Tuomo Ahonen I also got a very nice email from Yakima confirming my reception.

WLOU Louisville KY 1350

It took some time to find a person at the station who could confirm the reception, but now it's OK and my third Kentucky station is a fact.

WTCM Traverse City MI 580

The total population of our county is 7900 people scattered out over 4800 square miles, so you can see there are not many people around here. We are also very isolated. It takes 3 and a half hours to get to a city of over 20,000!"
