eQSL from Greek pirate Zeppelin Radio


My tentative reception of Zeppelin Radio on Monday has been rewarded with an eQSL from the station. In an email the operator said he uses a homebrew 110W transmitter with 47m longwire antenna. Although Greek pirates are regularly heard mixing with the Dutch at the top of medium wave, not so many are heard on shortwave.

This is only my third shortwave Greek pirate - the others were Odyssey Radio and Spider Radio, around 10 years ago. Many thanks for this eQSL.

His email address is zeppelinradiosw@yahoo.com
