WRNR-AM 740, Martinsburg, WV is what I would call to be a semi-local. They can be heard all day long, but the signal is not local quality and subject to co-channel interference mostly from WVCH and occasionally from CFZM on daytime skywave skip in the winter. Chief Engineer Rodney Rockwell, N8RAT sent this nice QSL letter for a reception report.
Friedensstimme Mission was heard here in Maryland on 13710 kHz (incorrect frequency of 1375 kHz on card) in 2015 via Nauen with a pretty good signal. They sent this nice QSL card in response to my reception report.
Radio 700 using the transmitting facilities at Kall-Krekel was heard throughout much of Europe. One morning in 2014 when propagation was favorable and the noise floor was low, their 1 kW signal made it to Maryland. I reached out to the station with a reception report and they responded with the QSL card below.
Metro Broadcast, Hong Kong on 1044 kHz was a relatively easy catch on the early morning hours in Seoul. When I heard them in 1991, they were an English language talk station. Now the station broadcasts in Chinese and other languages and the channel is called Metro Plus.
They sent the QSL letter seen below.
Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) Radio 6 can be heard in Seoul in the early morning hours. When I heard them in 1992, they were relaying BBC World Service. They currently broadcast Cantonese and Mandarin language programming from China National Radio (CNR). Their transmitter is located in Peng Chau.
They sent this QSL card for my reception report.
BBC Wales was heard on two frequencies when we lived in Southern Germany in the 1980’s. The outlet on 882 kHz using high-powered transmitters was naturally easily heard. 1125 kHz outlet located at Llandrindod Wells was more difficult. This transmitter served the Powys, Mid Wales which relayed the main BBC Wales service and BBC Radio. It also transmitted local programming. The main station in Cardiff responded with the two QSL letters and a coverage map for my reception reports.
The 882 kHz outlet can be easily heard under good conditions along the East Coast of North America, if you are far enough away from the side channel interference from WCBS etc.
WPTK on 850 kHz sometimes pokes through the co-channel interference here in Maryland especially at sunrise and sunset when they are on their daytime power and pattern. Paul Michels, Director of Ground Operations and IT, Curtis Media Group replied with the QSL letter below for my reception report dated 20 January 2019.
In 1984 in Seoul, I managed to pick up two NHK domestic outlets on shortwave. NHK Kumamoto 6130 kHz (JKQ21) sent nice handwritten letter for a report of their transmission. NHK in Tokyo responded with a Radio Japan QSL card for a report of NHK Hiroshima 6175 kHz (JKG21). They put out fair signals into Seoul and were quite readable.
I am not sure but I believe these were links from the key stations to their subordinate stations.
Earlier this week, this verification of WQFG989 operated by the Hudson County Office of Emergency Management arrived in our mailbox. The station was mostly in the clear on 1710 kHz so it might be possible to hear it on the West Coast of North America, or at a high latitude listening post in Europe. Thank you to Coordinator Jim Woods for taking the time to type up and send this letter.
