My very first QSL from Washington State arrived quite some time ago when Rick Van Cise, Program Director at KOMO in Seattle sent a kind e-mail confirming my reception of KOMO on 1000 kHz. A couple of weeks later an envelope also arrived in my mailbox containing a.o. some KOMO pens and even a KOMO ice scraper which will no doubt be used now that fall and winter arrives here in Norway.
Receiving stations from the West Coast of North America is rare at our listening post at Lista. We have been able to catch only a handful of stations from the west coast through the years. My report to KOMO dated back to November 2009 when we enjoyed pretty good reception of KOMO on 1000 kHz. Reception of KOMO is of course completely different in Arctic Scandinavia where the 50 kilowatt signal of KOMO can easily be heard in the winter season.
