    Trip Down DX Memory Lane of Radio Reloj from Cuba.
    Danny Shortwave And Radio DX



    Published on Mar 12, 2017
    This station was my first MW DX when I was 9 years old living in Puerto Rico. My first radio was a Green Rhapsody Solid State AM Transistor Radio which was my Christmas gift. I believe the cost was $5. I just wanted to share this station with you. I would love to catch this station here in New York. It's a difficult catch because of a very powerful AM Christian station 570 WMCA. The receiver is a Yamaha HTR-4066 using the NetRadio function for the audio stream.

    Please share in the comments what was your first radio DX experience. I know I remember mine quite well :)

    Thank you for watching.

    It seems that nowadays the attitude of a lot of amateurs, Italians probably being the worst culprits is if you keep shouting your callsign over and over again without listening, eventually you will be heard.
