Coast FM "Tenerife's official British Radio Station"

Just has a QSL received from Coast FM "Tenerife's official British Radio Station". i heard them on 6285kHz on 1st April so fairly prompt response. i also received a bumper sticker. the station only has a 600W TX but no details available on the antenna. I'm in the UK, using a Lowe HF 250 RX and a 20m longwire. they also have a 500W TX on 4025kHz, which i couldn't hear.

This snippet from their website gives a bit more insight...

From Friday morning through till Sunday evening Coast FM also broadcasts on Shortwave across Western Europe. We share these fequencies with our sister stations, Energy FM and Atlantis FM over the weekend. We broadcast on 6285Khz and also 4025Khz. Our signal can be heard over a very wide area and reception reports have been received from as far away as Cyprus, Brazil, USA and Russia. 

Reception Reports

Our shortwave service is run on a voluntary basis by our engineering team. This may result in a slow response at busy times. If you would like us to confirm reception please send your report to
 Coast FM DX Show

On Sunday from 16:00 we split our output with the Vodafone UK Top 40 broadcast on our regular FM frequencies and online. We have a special show for radio enthusiasts broadcast on our Shortwave frequencies only. This show plays a mixture of classic hit music along with confirming reception reports and other radio related news.
Interestingly my QSL was posted here in the UK.
