QSL: ORF Radio 1476

I was very surprised to find a full data QSL card from Radio 1476 in my mailbox the other day. I submitted a reception report to them almost 3 years ago, seems like somebody has really been clearing their deskes there in Vienna! 🙂

Radio 1476 was closed down on December 31, 2008 when the Wien-Bisamberg transmitter was shut down. Wikipedia has a pretty good article on the history of the station. The Bisamberg transmitter masts were demolished with controlled explosions on February 24, 2010, so this station and this transmitter is definitely history now. The transmitter on 1476 kHz was always received with good quality here in Norway. ORF on 1476 kHz was one of the stations I frequently tuned in to when I started DX-ing almost 30 years ago…
