FIRS Stanley Falkland Islands 530 kHz QSL

The Falkland Island Radio Service broadcasting on 530 kHz has been a sought-after dx target in South Africa for many years. The highlight of the recent dxpedition to Jongensgat was the reception of FIRS on 530 kHz - the first time that the Falkland Islands has been received on mediumwave in South Africa.

Station Manager Corina Goss kindly verified my reception report from 25 August with an attractive QSL card, stickers and programme schedule. Thank you Corina for the QSL card which will certainly provide a good reminder of the surprising reception !
