New QSL’s

A few new QSL’s that I have scanned over the weekend. A few Navtex on 518 Khz and also some Mediumwave.

Navtex QSL

During the winter here in Holland it is often possible to hear these US Coastguard stations on 518 khz. You have to be lucky with propagation and time slots but you would expect to hear them several times during the season.

518 khz NMA Boston USA

This particular broadcast was from Boston. The QSL states the call NMA and time as 0428 UTC. Its not a rare catch but it certainly can be hard to hear at times. You would expect to hear this during the winter.

This particular broadcast was from New Orleans. The QSL states the call NMG and time as 0306 UTC. Its not a rare catch but it certainly can be hard to hear at times. You would expect to hear this during the winter.

518 khz EJK Valentia Coastguard - Ireland

EJK Valentia Coastguard station in Ireland. Quite regular here in Holland and can be heard via groundwave. Still its always nice to get all of the Navtex stations back.

One of my nicer catches on 518 khz. Its not rare but conditions have to be nice to have a chance of this. It is heard several times a year during the winter months.

A nice catch this just given its location. It looks a great place to visit. Heard on 1368 at 1906 UTC. Heard from home here in Den Haag with the Perseus and ALA 1530 loop.

891 - Radio 538 in Hulsberg - The Netherlands

This is a local Dutch station here in Holland. But over the past few years there have been takeovers etc and stations popping up on various frequencies. So it is wise to even get your locals.
