MONTSERRAT Radio Antilles 930 kHz QSL

Radio Antilles from the Caribbean island of Montserrat used to get through to Pinelands on quite a few occasions during the 1970's.

I was fortunate to receive the above QSL in response to my reception report from the 3rd September 1978 at 2220 hrs UTC via the Siera receiver and 20 metre longwire antenna.

After a long period of dormancy, the Soufriere Hills volcano on Montserrat became active in 1995 and has continued to erupt ever since.

The site of Radio Antilles was totally obliterated by pyroclastic flows in October 1997. A pic of the collapsed roof of Radio Antilles is available here.
