QSLs Received / Re: Mustang Radio QSL
« on: March 23, 2014, 1815 UTC »
Received eQSL's for both evenings here! Broadcast was 300 watts into an inverted v. Very pleased to get these.....THANKS HERMAN!!! I enjoyed the programs very much and look forward to future broadcasts!

I believe that we should take what we can get in regards to shortwave broadcasters! I was really pleased with the courteous reply from Andy in regards to my report to Horizon. It was prompt and he seemed truly enthusiastic about his endeavor. I treasure the QSL regardless of the alleged retransmission of an internet based stream via a home brew shortwave transmitter possibly located in the British Isles or Ireland.
Horizon and Atlantic FM are both part of "922Media". (The link is http://www.922media.es/page2.html)
 If someone wants to send a snail mail report or inquiry to Islas Canarias, here is the address....maybe that might settle the matter, but for me I'm happy with Horizon FM just being on the shortwave band!
Horizon FM
Apartado De Correos 150
38626 Valle San Lorenzo

It was a good musical exercise to ID most of these songs that I grew up listening to! I would be happy to receive a QSL for this if you are so inclined. Signal was a solid S3 above the noise here with almost no fading and no interference. Regards!}
