Radio Armada wins QSL award

The long-running Dutch medium wave pirate Radio Armada has been voted as the first recipient of the free radio QSL Award at this year's Dutch summer meeting for free radio listeners and operators, held a few weeks ago.

Listeners had been voting for which station they believed offered the best QSL service and the result was announced at the meeting. The station operator received a  Swedish crystal vase and a bouquet of flowers.

The award was sponsored by the Shortwave Combination Holland free radio station and Swedish DX clubs MKVK and VDXK.

I was able to listen to Radio Armada on Saturday evening on 1667 kHz and sent him a reception report. I received a quick reply with an eQSL, letter and photo of him with his award.

Congratulations and many thanks!
