BELIZE Radio Belize, Belize City 834 kHz QSL

A vintage QSL from Radio Belize on 834 kHz, received in 1976.

It was a pleasant surprise to hear Radio Belize for the first time on 834 kHz in Pinelands at 0435 UTC on the 3rd September 1976 via the Siera receiver and 20 metre longwire antenna. I was fortunate to receive a QSL card in response to my reception report.

Radio Belize used to make it through to Pinelands on a few rare occasions during the 1970's. I also managed to hear the station on 830 kHz in Sandbaai (Hermanus) during the middle 1980's.

Radio Belize closed down on November 30, 1998.
