Unfortunately we got problem with the antenna at the first transmission at 09:00 UTC. It was a short circuit which caused fire in an isolator in one of the feeders. We were happy to be able to repair it fast and the second transmission at 12:00 UTC worked out very well.

In fact we think it was one of the best transmissions ever, and the frequency was surprisingly clear from interferences.

The number of reports were however less than usual, some 230, compared to the Christmas Eve  2014 transmission, when we received nearly 400 reports. Possibly the interrupted transmission is a reason.

We thank you for being so understanding when we had trouble and patiently waited for the next transmission.

P.S. The fire can be seen in a short film sequence on our website www.alexander.n.se.
Next intended transmission will be on Christmas Eve, Dec 24th, 2015. D.S.

WebSdr reports

Also some 189 listeners were listening to SAQ via WebSdr receiver in Twente. All well done as a compliment, but the reports of only WebSdr reception are not valid for QSL-card.
