I received both transmissions on 30 June 2019 at Cohoe, Alaska USA and filed the online reception report.
Will QSL cards acknowledging the reception be mailed out like last year?

Dear SAQ Team and all SAQ listeners,
I have been listening the SAQ for the first time on 30th July this year, and it was a great adventure for me.
My equipment was:
1) an upconverter to 4 MHZ using ferrite antenna and a FRG-7 receiver,
2) simple regenerative 3 transistor receiver also with ferrite antenna.
Signal was strong enough- with 1st set it was S7-8, and with 2nd set signal was weak but readible.
I’m looking forward to hear SAQ in winter.
Best 73’s and regards,

Equipment: W&G SPM-3, Ant 9m Vertical.

No joy here again on Stonington Point Connecticut USA for the second transmission. I’ll be back again on Christmas Eve! Hopefully a lot less static then, noise levels today were more than 20dB higher than when copied the Christmas Eve 2018 transmission from here. Equipment was a Wandell und Goltermann AT-611 Selective Level Meter and a 100 foot “trailing wire” lying on the rocks about 10 feet from the ocean.

Hej Alexander fan’s,
Today I received the first time the SAQ transmission
using the original “SAQ Receiver kit” from Grimeton.
The SAQ signal was much better than expected with 569.
