DSWCI Jubilee Band-Monitoring Competition
30 years ago the DSWCI held some popular Band-Monitoring Competitions where members should listen to broadcast stations on a certain metre band within a specific time period. We are going to do the same on the exact date when the DSWCI was born 50 years ago. The task is to hear as many broadcast transmitters as possible on the 60 metre band between 4750 and 5060 kHz between 0001 and 2359 UTC on the 18th of November, 2006.
We hope that many members around the world will join us and send in their loggings which should have the same format as in our SW TIPS: kHz, heard time period in UTC, country (ITUcode), 18-11-06, station name, language, SINPO and contributor. Only identified stations should be reported. Tentative may be counted, if they sound realistic. The three winners will get a free Domestic Broadcasting Survey 2007.
Please send your contributions to Anker Petersen, Udbyvej 11, DK 2740 Skovlunde, Denmark, before 01 December, 2006.
