HORIZON FM eQSL 6245 KHZ TENERIFE?
« on: March 10, 2014, 2253 UTC »
Andy at Horizon FM sent this brand new eQSL very promptly for my reception yesterday on 6245 KHZ. Thank you very much indeed Andy!!! They were testing a new antenna. Power was at 75 watts, slightly lower than 5780. Full power of 1 KW expected this weekend!!
{I have been following the controversy regarding this on 5780 since the outset and acknowledge the healthy skepticism surrounding the QTH of the transmitter. If it is indeed from Isla Canarias, that is good. If it is being relayed from somewhere else, that is good too. Nice QSL and I'm happy to get it either way! The important thing is that it is being propagated by the ionosphere at some distance from my receiver!}

Same card received in 20 days, 1 day after follow up for 5780 kHz, 75 watts.
I think we need to send Chris Smolinski to Tenerife to confirm the location is not Ireland.

The Canaries are one of "THE" winter vacation destinations for Europeans.  Nice and warm right off the coast of Morocco.

After this brutal winter, any place warm sounds great!
