QSL: KMRS Morris MN 1230

Quite a surprising catch this morning when KMRS surfaced with a promotion and mentioned both 1230 and 95.7 KKOK. Quick response this afternoon. KMRS is one of rather few stations who are not 24/7, as they're silent between local Midnight and 5:30 am.

QSL: YVKJ Radio Maria, Caracas VEN 1450

A very common guest on Smøla island, and quite often heard in Kongsfjord too. E-QSL today for an August, 2016 report.

QSL: Radio Live, Wellington NZL 1233

Great signal from Radio Live (and a heap of others) on October 13. Email confirmation tonight. I also received a verie for Radio Live Rotorua 1107, but after I sent the report I noticed that it was already confirmed several years ago. You can't have too many Kiwi QSLs!

QSL: Rhema, Invercargill NZL 1404

Another QSL from DU today as Rhema responded to a September reception. A bit of luck was required for catching it, as SBS from Shizouka, Japan dominated the frequency with a very strong signal. At the top of the hour they were quiet for a second, just enough for a weak "This is Rhema" to be heard. Thanks OJS for spotting it. 16,550 km for a 5,000 watt signal.

QSL: 4RN ABC Radio National, Brisbane QLD 792

I noticed Ole Forr had heard it in September, so I had to check a recording and voilá, there it was with weather before ending ABC News. Guangxi RGD was less dominant than usual. Super-quick response today.

QSL: WCMN Arecibo, Puerto Rico 1280

Not often I target stations in Puerto Rico, however WCMN is a dominant station on 1280 on Smøla island, so I sent a report to NotiUno. Quick response today.

QSL: Star, Hamilton, New Zealand 1494

Heard on October 13 during a short, but intense opening towards New Zealand. Friendly response this morning. Star, previously Southern Star, is part of Rhema Media. Star from Wellington on 657 was also heard, but just barely. The 1494 transmitter is 3 kW and is shared with RNZ Parliament Radio. 15,850 km or just shy of 10,000 miles.

QSL: WYCB Washington DC 1340

WYCB surfaced briefly on Nov 11 with a full-hour ID, and I received a friendly response this afternoon. Only my second DC logging, but then there are only seven currently active stations.
