CONGRATS to Paul Logan!!!.....on STATION # 300!!!


Paul Logan
 

Hi Robert,

many thanks for the congrats and encouragement  - the 300 was a LOT of fun, its going to be a long time before I add another 150 though!

All logs were barefoot -  with the loop I could add a few more N. Americans.

Station 300 was

567khz    RNE5 Torre de Cotillas, Murcia    25kw    Spain    04:00    28/03/2008

Heard behind local RTE1 which is now running an information tape loop about its closedown. Theres another 5 kw RNE5 tx on this channel from Marbella in Andalucia but judging from the ferrite bearing and output this was Murcia in south eastern Spain.

The Spaniards are difficult - they are everywhere but often are running network programming.So often difficult to get local id's.
