Good things come for those who wait. So, no matter if it required quite five years of chasing, here I am with my QSL from SAQ, found in the mailbox today. It's related to the broadcast held on 3rd July 2011, twenty-six days ago (my previous blog entry here). I'd remember everyone that, for a radio aficionado, Grimeton Radio marks the last chance of a signal in the clear in VLF (17.2 kHz). The station ended its commercial mission years ago, but the Alexander Generator and the huge towers used to broadcast the signal from Sweden are too much of radio-architectural interest to be lost, so it's now a foundation which takes care of the station, with some special broadcasts scheduled every year. Receiving 17.2 kHz succesfully requires a set-up not really at entry level, but you have a challenginng option: SAQ frequency falls in the range of a personal computer soundcard, so plug the antenna to the "line-in", and run a spectrum visualization software like "Argo". Propagation should do the magic. Personally, as you know, I'm old fashioned, so I did run with an NRD-525 coupled to the PA0RDT "Mini-whip", and I'm proud of the confirmation. Long live to SAQ, and the Grimeton Heritage!
