Bavaria Spring DX Camp
May 1-5, 2003

by Michael Schnitzer

The highlights: Altogether we had good conditions. Some LA-stations came in with excellent signal strengths. A very nice ID of R Santa Mónica from Perú can be downloaded in the audio clip section on my homepage. We had good results on mediumwave, too. A 400m Beverage-antenna, directed to Thailand, enabled the reception of a regional Thai station on 1476 kHz.
