NEW PAGE ON MY BLOG: QSL ADDRESSES

DEAR VISITORS OF MY BLOG!
WELCOME TO THE NEW PAGE WITH MY QSL ADDRESSES LIST!

Here you can find correct QSL addresses of legal radio stations – predominantly addresses, which were checked by me or familiar DXers.
Now there are only addresses of the most famous stations but later I will add here more and more info. Now there is no info about Latin-American stations because they are very hard to QSL and I do not know their correct addresses. But later I will add their addresses too.
!!! There are NO pirate addresses, because you can found them on UKDXer's website and on other sites !!!
PLEASE, if you have any remarks or additions about this page – send them to my e-mail yahoo3grif@gmail.com . Also you can send me new addresses – and I will locate them on this page.

Yours, Vitaliy
73s!

Bad propagation or problems with equipment?

Yesterday I have heard no one pirate! On all SW freqs (3-21 MHz) there was the same strange noise, and there  were not heard low-power stations. Yes, at night I heard with good quality Radio Habana Cuba, WTJC, WINB, REE on 9630 via CTR, but low-power stations (including pirates) were not heard.
It might be because of
a) bad propagation
b) my experiments with antennas. Yesterday I've made something like loop wire antenna, but it seems that it isn't good antenna. So today I will turn it off.
c) problems with my DEGEN. I had problems with sound yesterday but I've eliminated them. But could damage something in receiver.
