MEXICO XEPE Tijuana 1700 kHz QSL


It was a pleasant surprise to hear XEPE on 1700 kHz over a distance of 15 858 km (9 854 miles) on the 13th September 2006 via the FRG7 and a beverage antenna during a dxpedition to Seefontein. 

Chief Engineer Bill Lipis kindly verified my reception report with an email reply : 

" GREAT DX REPORT !!! This is to confirm your reception of XEPE 1700 on 12 Sept 2006. XEPE was operating with 10 kw Non-DA at the time. The XEPE transmitter with two towers is located near the Tijuana airport.  Thanks again for the report, 
Bill - XEPE-1700 - Cash 1700 ".
