REPORT DX-PEDITION TO HIMALAYA
by Anker Petersen, Denmark. From DX-Window Issue 402 of Danish Short Wave Club International - WEB : www.dswci.org
The past 16 till 27 april 2010, I have travelled to Himalaia Oriental with stops at Darjeeling & Kalimpong (Bengala Ocidental, Índia), Gangtok (Sikkim, Índia) ; Puntsoling, Thimphu, Punakha & Paro (Towns of Bhutan Kingdom).
I stopped at hotels in these towns, so I had the chanche to look at the broadcasting media in this remote area famous for the YETI (but I did not saw it, unfortunatly). My portable receiver ATS909 Sangean with a telescopic antenna, also listening with long wire of 8 meters for better reception of the short waves.
Band scans at 0200-1200 UTC at Darjeeling, Gangtok, Thimphu, Punakha e Paro.
Meus escassos MW-loggings: (Poucas estações eram audíveis no Himalaia!)
