Re: 1410 KQV Pittsburg PA

Hello Gary,
     Congratulations on receiving a great QSL (for your superb logging of KQV-1410, at a distance of over 13,000 km).  That is a very impressive accomplishment, and the distance is only a shade less than the all-time Ultralight DX distance record.  Good luck on more thrilling DX.

Hi Folks

Today I was fortunate to receive my first QSL from T/A reception via an ultralight here in South Africa. 

The reception occurred at Noordhoek, Cape Peninsula via the Sony SRF-M37V and 220 m BOG. The 5kw signal from 1410 KQV managed to make it through over a distance of over 13 030 km. Also a personal first.

News Director Frank Gottlieb kindly verified the reception and recognised KQV announcer Bruce Sakalik's voice with their station id at the end of my attached audio clip.
