Gattopardo's DX diaries

Wednesday, January 17 2007

It really looks like the bug has bitten again. It's been a longtime
since we have last seen so much activity from friends of Quelli del
Faiallo, informally representing Italian DXers in Northern, Central
and Southern locations in the Country and their interests in the
field of NDB, mediumwaves, tropical bands and domestic shortwaves
monitoring. This log comes from Salvo Micciche', in Sicily, who's
been experiencing several nights of intriguing signals. Please refer to:


for other details about latest tips from Salvo and others (including
Walter Mola, Renato Bruni, Giampaolo Galassi)
