LKB / LLE Bergen Kringkaster

LKB / LLE Bergen Kringkaster (LA1ASK)*, transmitting from Bergen, Norway, was logged on 5 December 2014. CW and facsimile (digital mode) transmission was received clearly, then followed by voice transmission. This was repeated several times from 00.15 to 00.20 UTC, and heard well after 01.00 to 01.15 UTC. Reception on 5.895 kHz in USB mode was (SINPO) 24342 -- CW and facsimile transmission was clearly audible, whereas indecipherable audio was only faintly received on an otherwise QRN and QRM free frequency.

HERE is how LKB / LLE Bergen Kringkaster sounded in (Twente) the Netherlands.

Reception report was emailed and posted to Svenn Martinsen at  LKB / LLE Bergen Kringkaster within the week. On 30 January 2015 I received an eQSL Letter from Svenn Martinsen, confirming reception of station.
