HO... Radio Panamá, Santiago 790

A few weeks ago I made a list of 4 "need to have" Latin American QSLs. Radio Dorado Deportes 1530 was the first "check" on that list, and tonight Radio Panamá 790 was number two. I'm still working on number 3 and 4.
First time I heard this station was December 16, 2008, when they still were named W Radio. Radio Panamá was heard on November 5, 2009, with a fair ID over Radio Reloj, Cuba.
After many attemps to different persons at the stations I finally received an email from Asdrúal Rojas, perfectly confirming my reception.
Their web site is

KRKS Denver CO 990

KRKS was a KONG19 log - heard on October 19, 2009. 990 isn't exactly the most common frequency to hear US stations, so you'd say this log was a pleasant surprise.
Thanks a lot to Cliff Mikkelson for finding time to send me a confirmation by email!

JOHK NHK-1 Sendai 891

JOHK became my MW QSL #50 from Japan, when I received a letter via air mail from Sendai today - with a confirmation letter, a schedule, a coverage map and some other stuff. The verification signer was the Manager of Sendai Broadcasting Station - Hirokazu Toyota.
Hopefully he will confirm my reception of JOHB NHK-2 Sendai 1089 as well.
JOHK was, like a lot of other Japanese stations, heard in Kongsfjord on January 5, 2010.

JOTR ABS Radio, Akita 936

JOTR was heard in Kongsfjord on January 5, 2010, and my reception was confirmed today with this Japan style QSL card. I also received a program guide and two stickers.

January 5 seem to have been a great day for DX'ing Japan in Kongsfjord, and I won't be surprised if my recordings are hiding more goodies.

OBX4N Radio Corporación, Cerro de Pasco 1540

I found this most delicious station on a recording made on April 7, 2010, and with fresh v/s info received from Torolf Johnsson I sent my reception report yesterday.
I was very satisified when I received an email entitled CARTA DE AGRADECIMIENTO PARA EUROPA with a letter attached, from Gerente General P.C Tito Vera Romero.
The next day I received further emails from them, one with this great logo and a station identification attached.

Thanks to Torolf, and to Henrik Klemetz who had helped Torolf identifying and verifying this station. On their web site at you can click on En el Mundo and see reception reports they have received. Nice!

HCMZ6 Radio Dorado Deportes, Pelileo 1530

I heard Radio Dorado Deportes with a fair signal on 1530 kHz in the morning of October 4, 2009. Roger Granholm sent me some information on this station, and among this info I found an email address which turned out to work. At least I received a nice email from Ghilda Viviane Zambrano Bedon, Secretaria, with a most wanted confirmation of my reception!

Thanks to Roger, and to Henrik Klemetz who had helped Roger getting his confirmation.
