    Many thanks for this broadcast, Adrián. I had to use a KiwiSDR in Argentina for getting a decent signal; I am listening from Germany. A pity the webcast did not work. This past friday I also heard radio amateur Juan LU1ZV on 10 m SSB from Base Esperanza here in Germany. The signal was weak but at times good readable. No chance for a QSO, many station from the Americas and Europe were calling. But I will keep on trying 🙂

    Thanks again and best regards

    Nice to record this with my SDR. Maybe I didn’t read the article carefully enough; how long does the broadcast last? An hour? Each?
