1XX One Double X, Whakatane 1242

17 October 2007 also was a great day for DX'ing New Zealand in Kongsfjord, and one of the stations nailed was 1XX One Double X in Whakatane. Even if 100 kW JOLF out of Tokyo made reception of 1XX difficult, Broadcast Engineer Chris Prouse was able to identify the announcer, the station ID jingle and a mention of a small town close by to Whakatane. Education of the young is very important for the future of DX'ing: "We have played the sound bite to some our younger staff who were very excited to learn that the station could be heard on the other side of the world."
Thank you very much, Chris!
