KIPM South African listener postcard

I received this from Alan Maxwell and thought it might be interesting for the archives. He had a listener from South Africa in the early 2000s..

Yeah, Vashek Korinek is a hardcore shortwave DXer. He's heard at least a handful of North American pirates. Here's an old "Outer Limits" column where he's mentioned hearing Radio Tellus: https://worldradiohistory.com/hd2/IDX-Short-Wave/Monitoring-Times-IDX/90s/Monitoring-Times-1997-04-OCR-Page-0088.pdf

Here's a report on a DXpedition he was a part of from a decade ago:

I hadn't really thought about it, but if some of these guys are still doing DXpeditions, it might be worth contacting them to coordinate activities. Could be fun for everyone involved
