HCJB - 2012 Desktop Calendar

HCJB from its Brazilian headquarters mailed in addition to a QSL card (see September blog date), this 2012 desktop calendar.

These items have quite a history. From the start HCJB-Quito, transmitting  out of Santiago, Chile,  was a difficult station to hear in Malaysia, but sufficient to ID and discern programming for about 45 minutes under poor conditions. Once the reception report was compiled, I submitted an email to HCJB in Brazil and HCJB Global in USA. I received an email to contact HCJB at a German email address. Subsequently, I communicated in German to obtain an eQSL, then this QSL card and a 2012 desktop calendar. The later two items arrived in the mail on 8 December 2011, after receiving an email two weeks earlier stating they were en route to Malaysia. Needless to say, I am quite proud of this accomplishment.
