I've been listening for the station, but have yet to hear it.  Persistence will pay off.

Thank you for Listening! :)


Heh! I though you might like a surprise QSL Card and hoped you won't be upset because I googled for your address. :)


Today I visited the Post Office and found a QSL card for "Common and Precious" reception. Thank you very much!

Here we go! Batch 2. Cards #5 to #10

  • Added a seperate block for the Rig used.
  • New High Gloss cardboard/paper.
  • Printed on a HQ Laser. All crisp and clear.
  • Colour calibrated print.



Maintenance post. We had some storms recently so I went out for a check last night. I was quite amazed to see that the whole setup stood up against the beautiful night sky like it did when I saw it last time. Funny how much stress this cheap (but well considered) setup can withstand.  Also, given how many people (Graffity sprayers, etc.) run around on that industry yard, I'm also amazed that it didn't fell linto the hands of teenagers with too much energy left. So, jep, nothing to complain. :)

Btw: I made this chart yesterday.

Hey Jim.

Will check for that frequently in the future and will keep you up to date.


Can you listen to 5153.7 to see if it is on frequency and sending a clean letter "D"?

*chuckles* I know about those offical lists. I'm curious about the unofficial ones from the US.

Hey Chuck!

Sorry for the late replay. I got a bit lost in work. Send you a DM in case you want a QSL Card. :)

Hey everyone!

After being busy as hell for the last weeks I'm finally going to send out a new batch of QSL Cards during this week. :)



heh, I was already wondering about it. No worries. :)


HF Beacons / Beacons readable in North Europe
« on: August 14, 2015, 2333 UTC »

I decided to follow Teotwaki and listen to several frequencies more frequently. Of course chances are rare that I may hear one of the famous Beacons from the US. But maybe one day, when fortuna is on my side...

What I'm curious about: are there other people in the EU trying to copy the US Beacons?

So far for this evening, 23:30 UTC

  7509.00 kHz "S"
10871.67 kHz "D"
10872.05 kHz "X"

Good show. That was fun. Thanks.

Strong Signal, S9+. Standig out against the noise floor just just a few distortions. Not much fading, just every 10 minutes for a moment  each time. The signal was strong until it faded out with a minute and never returned.

Lots of good stuff, like:

- Phil Collins - Easy Lover
- Simple Minds - Don't You (Forget About Me)
- And other goodies.

(Gone by now)

Strong Signal, S9+. Good Audio quality, only  a few distortion.
Could hear moderation. Unknown tongue. Sounds arabic, but managed to say "dankeschön" in the german tongue quite well! Made me laugh.
Odd music. Sounded like Bavarian "Oktoberfest" Music

Comes in with S7, but with heavy fading and distortions. Some Soft Rock Songs.
Could hear moderation. But nothing distinguishable. Sounded like "Radio wow".

Lovely quality. Almost no distortions. Just a bit of fading. S9+10 - S9+20

Songs know to me:
- Les Humphries Singers - Mexico
- Archies - sugar sugar (currently playing)
