150 QSLs

Some more statistics:

In 2011 - 93 QSLs
For 2011 receptions - 71 QSLs
Total - 150 QSLs
65 countries
In 2011 new countries - 35
77 stations
In 2011 new stations - 47

Counting countries, I included the real countries in which pirate stations are based. That's because Netherlands and Norway are verified only by pirates.
Also, counting stations, I thougth, for example, HCJB Chile and HCJB Australia as one station.

Very bad propagation from America at night

Last several nights there was very bad propagation from America. The loudest station heard was 6090 Caribbean Beacon, on 9 and 11 MHz signals were very bad. Audible are 9675 Cancao Nova, 11710 RAE and several others. The surprise for me was 4840 WWCR with a nice signal. Hope propagation would be better later...
Interesting that in daytime propagation from America is very good on HF (like 21600 WHRI, 15825 WWCR and others).

Tonight logs will be posted a bit later! Many interesting stations from Asia and not only received.

Again about MVBR, RGI and EMR in 2012

So, yesterday I published such info on my blog:
Due to Technical reasons the last transmission from MVBR on 6140 KHz will be on
the 25th of December 2011.  MVBR on 9480 KHz will continue in 2012 as normal.

Today I asked in dxld yahoo groop is anybody knows any more info on this matter.
Mike Terry replied:
Tom has replied to me as follows:
 "Yes, MVBR and EMR via 1 KW. Radio Gloria via 1KW and Radio
700 on 6005 khz. There maybe extra low power relays added in 2012."

A PS from Tom:
"EMR will Transmit every 3rd Sunday in 2012 on 9480, with a
repeat on the 4th Sunday. We may do 2 hour programmes from time to

So you can see that these stations again become DX for non-Europeans (here I receive 1kW 9480 well).
