QSL: NHK-2 Okinawa, Miyakojima relay, 1602

I was quite surprised to hear this Okinawa NHK-2 station on 1602. Most welcome QSL & friendly letter received today. This relay is listed Miyakojima, actually closer to Taiwan than the main Okinawa island. 100 watts! Likely one of my best Japanese catches to date - if not the best.

1602 AM has 26 (!) - twenty six different sites listed for NHK 2 Radio. How did you manage finding out this was THEM you heard (and not one of the other 25 ) as there was no local programming at this time? even using a beverage you can never be sure about the tx if there are so many located in such a small angle.

Sorry franz I didn't see your comments until now. All my NHK loggings, be it only one station on the frequency or 25, ALWAYS contain a local ID which they do at certain times of the day.
