The wonderful world of listening to the radio

Surprise from the East… Bangkok Radio on 2187.5 kHz

This blog is about listening to the radio and not only about the reception of QSLs. So I’d like to share this nice surprise.

Aasiaat Radio in Greenland was my most remote log on 2187.5 kHz. Until last night when all of a sudden Bangkok Radio from Thailand showed up on DX-Atlas. I have received Bangkok Radio a couple of times on 12 Mhz but never on 2 MHz.

With a DSC message they responded to a test call from bulk carrier “BASS” near Banda Aceh on its way from Sikka, India to Singapore.

Unfortunately I don’t have an email address of Bangkok Radio, and I couldn’t find recent QSLs on the internet. But if you have info, feel free to drop it in the comments.

    I also received them too and sent an email to asking for it to be forwarded. I’m not sure if this works.

      Hello Jürgen, I was considering doing the same – but did not actually do so. Curious to see if your approach works! Thanks!

    I have found an email ads:
    I’ve sent an email to this ads and received no notifications of failed delivery, so I think it should work. No answer so far, though…

      Thanks, also got it from Nestor a few days ago. Report on my 2 MHz sent, no reply yet.

      Today I received a fully detailed email to QSL my reception of Bangkok Radio on 2 MHz. Thanks to Nestor Damiab Fischetto and Roberto for the address info. Will make a dedicated blog entry later.
