Hard-Core-DX.com: Report on Radio Clube do Para 4885

Report on Radio Clube do Para 4885

Monday, September 11 2017


My statement was an educated guess based upon observations. Nothing more
nothing less. And now I'm expected to remember something Glenn put in a
log months Ago? I don't think so!

I sent a letter to the station and asked a few questions, to confirm power
level and off air/air status and improvements recently so I *DID* do my
homework... I am just waiting to hear back

I have some expierience and knowledge of broadcasting, both in the on air
and technical Side of the business. Something most DXers have none of and
something Glenn hasn't had in decades, longer then I've been alive.

If I am making a negative insinuation or assumption about a station or
insulting them, you'll know... trust me. I'll make that clear.

I make an EDUCATED guess based about my limited few years experience as a
DXer and my decade plus as a broadcaster who's seen many transmitter shacks
and knows many engineers
