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: 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.
