UPDATE!: I have to admit that I was already hoping for this, because following an email confirmation of my Aasiaat Radio reception I also received a letter by mail. And indeed, Bo Mogensen, head of Kystradio in Greenland (operated by Tusass), was again so kind to send a physical letter as QSL NDB OZN-372 Prins Christians Sund Greenland. Wow!!! Click here for more details about the reception of the furtherst NDB I ever logged.
Thank you Bo for this service, it is so nice to get a QSL/picture of these remote locations!
The longest distance over which I have received a beacon so far is OZN Prins Christian Sund with 3300 km. A bit of research on the internet made me think that this beacon might very well be operated by Tusass Greenland. Apparently that was correct: Bo Mogensen, who also confirmed my Aasiaat Radio reception, sent me a brief email as QSL OZN-372 Prins Christian Sund.
The OZN radio beacon is located at weather station at the Prins Christian Sund on the southern tip of Greenland. This station was founded by the US during WWII under the name Bluie East One.
Last weekend I participated in the “SQUEEZE 100” NDB event, organized by the NDBlist group. Aim was to log 100 NDBs (Non Directional Beacons) in an as small frequency range possible. Hence the name “SQUEEZE 100”.
I had participated in two earlier events this year in which I logged only 4 and 13 stations respectively. So I decided that I needed a bit of help and installed Pskov NDB software. The result was impressive. Not knowing what to expect I started monitoring between 300 and 500 kHz. After I had 100 NDBs logged I could start to zoom in a bit, trying to squeeze the frequency range.
In total I logged over 183 NDBs. Between 350 and 403 kHz I had exactly 100 NDBs, close to 2 per kHz! The picture above shows the most distant ones I heard. With 3033 km OZN from Prins Christian Sund in Greenland was on top of my list. I was also very happy to catch three beacons from Iceland (KF-392; VM-375 and HN-330) and two from Algeria (ON-415; BJA-423).
Receiving QSLs from remote places around the globe is always nice. So I was very pleased to receive this QSL from Aasiaat Radio, Greenland following a reception of a DCS test message on 2187.5 kHz. Bo Mogensen on email@example.com was so kind to reply to my report. Initially I thought I received Qaqortoq Radio on the basis of the MMSI number 003311000 received, but Bo explained to me that MMSI numbers were rationalized following ITU recommendations, so this one belongs to Aasiaat now.
