Hello WDOG Crew,

I  received your station in Belgium with a poor signal strength.
Here is my report:
     From: Hugo Matten
     To: WDOG
DATE: June 6, 2021
TIME:  Between 01.08 and 01.40 UTC
Quality of reception in SIO-code:
Signal strength: 1
Interference: 4
Noice: 2 (Lightning!!)
Propagation: 3
Overall merit: 1 
ANTENNA: Dipole 22.8 metres long
-   At 01.08 the song ‘In the jungle the mighty jungle’ by The Tokens.
-   At 01.21  your program brought ‘Let’s twist again’ after this song I heard female talks: “….Radio…..”
-   At 01.35 I recognized the song: ‘Locomotion‘.
-   At 01.37 I heard ‘Oh Boy’ from Buddy Holly
-       After 01.40 UTC the reception was very difficult!

On this link on the internet: https://app.box.com/s/w7i7lb957bfe2j6djxnmcumeqb8f2oqx  you can listen to a short mp3 recording of the broadcast I heard.
In this audio recording first you can hear a fragment of the song ‘In the jungle the mighty jungle’ After 40 seconds you can hear the song ‘Let’s twist again’ and the female talks. After 1 minute and 12 seconds the song ‘Locomotion and after 2 minutes and 10 seconds the song ‘Oh boy’ from Buddy Holly.

I hope that you recognized it was WDOG I heard!

I live in Veurne. That’s in the western part of Belgium, It’s  a little village, 15 Km from the France frontier and 10 Km from the North Sea coast (=51°1’ 56”N – 2°40’36”E)

Please QSL this report! My e-mail address is h.matten(at)hotmail.be.

Thanking you in advance for your reply.

Hugo Matten,
