COMMENTS ABOUT BOC-31 DX-NIGHTS :

Horrible weather with storms and rainfalls almost no stop from our arrival on saturday midday till our depart on monday morning. QRN Noise on the MW was so high, after 2200 hours, almost covering even the Greek Pirates on extended MW Band. Our FM tentatives in Quercianella and Lerici hill San Terenzio did not got great results apart some tropo from France Cote Azur and Corse and Sardegna.

NATURALLY WE WILL BE PLEASED TO RECEIVE YOUR COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS, CORRECTIONS. PLEASE SEND ALL THEM TO : info@playdx.com
