QSL: Six stations from the Hokkaido Broacasting Company

JOHR Sapporo 1287 is among the most common Japanese stations here, and with the potential of absolutely "local" signal levels at times.

They do have a lot of relay stations though, and last autumn I did a more systematic hunt for them. Six stations were reported, and QSL cards and a letter was received today. The confirmed stations are:

JOHE Asahikawa 864, 3 kW (there's also a 1 kW station in Enbetsu on 864)
JOHW Obihiro 1269, 5 kW
JOTS Wakkanai 1368, 1 kW
JOQL Kushiro 1404, 5 kW
JOQM Abashiri 1449, 5 kW
JOHS Rumoi 1557, 100 W

There are still more stations in the HBC network to report, such as 801, 900, 1098 and 1494 kHz. We'll see what the coming season brings.
