New way to get a SWL call sign
« on: March 29, 2012, 2338 UTC »

If you are interested in getting a callsign for your monitoring station Popular Communications is now issuing callsigns for SW's and DX'ers. These are like the old calls that were issued years ago by Hank Bennett and friends. Go to:

and follow the instructions.
It was easy to do and I was registered in 24 hours so I could print off my certificate with my new callsign VEPC4SWL. It's a fun thing to do when the DX is poor.
