QSL: AIR Delhi, Rajdhani Channel 666; Indraprastha Channel 819

Caught late October when conditions were auroral and just about nothing at all was heard from North America. My two first MW reports to India since AIR Bhuj 1310 in 1977! Loads of Indian stations were heard these days so who knows, maybe more to come...

QSL: KSDO San Diego CA 1130

Thanks to Ole Forr I was alerted that KSDO, Radio Nueva Vida, was heard early in November. 1130 is usually a potent mix of 50 kW stations from across the continent, but at this time only CKWX was up, and as it faded down a few seconds after the full hour I got a good ID. Quick response tonight. KLTX 1390 Long Beach is more common, and was heard too with a better signal.

QSL: WBKK Wilton MN 820

WBKK took to the airwaves late 2012, and I heard them a few times that winter, but never with a proper ID. This changed this morning though. Very swift response to my report. WBKK is now part of the catholic Real Presence Radio Network, together with KWTL-1370 and KVXR-1280. Minnesota # 50.

QSL: WSUA Miami FL 1260

This Caracol station was heard back in 2012, but no response at that time. Good signal again some days ago, and a very quick response followed.

QSL: Coast 1359, New Plymouth NZL

Coast 1359 came up with a very good signal on their local midnight a week ago. Very swift and detailed response today. I actually heard the station during a super NZL opening back in 2008, but couldn't get a QSL at the time. Thanks OJS for v/s info.

QSL: WJTI West Allis WI 1460

Surfaced rather unexpected on the Mount Loran beverage when conditions were rather poor. Short email tonight confirmed my reception. Thanks OJS for the email address.

QSL: KGEN Tulare CA 1370

Surprising catch peaking well with "La Ley" slogans in October. Took a while to confirm that this was really KGEN, and took a bit more, including a call to the station from Henrik Klemetz, to trigger a friendly and detailed response! Thanks Henrik for lots of work! Thanks also Nigel Pimblett for removing any doubts this was KGEN.

QSL: KKTY Douglas WY 1470

We had massive signals from Wyoming for a while on October 24, and OJS alerted about this 1 kW, Classic Hits station. Detailed email received  today. KKTY belongs to Douglas Broadcasting, which also owns KKTS 1580, heard in 2013 and occasionally after that.

QSL: KFRU Columbia MO 1400

October 25 at 0000 UTC was a good spot for Nebraska and Missouri, and KFRU surfaced with a good signal at the time. I received a friendly email response this evening, together with lots of photos from the station. A couple of them here.

QSL: WREL Lexington VA 1450

A most welcome response from WREL, heard on the good east coast opening on September 20. Signal quality was not at all good, but was confirmed and they attached an MP3 of the actual announcement.
