Hello / Sveiki! From Latvia!

Post by JanisDX_Latvia » 16 Dec 2018 14:08

My Name is Jānis and I'm 23 years old. I'm doing the dxing on FM DAB and sometimes on AM for three years now.

I live Dauguli Northwestern Latvia. For dxing I use my portable reciever Technisat Techniradio 1 (Biult in Telescope antenna for FM and DAB) and also a Mini Stereo system PHILIPS FW C-399. Sometimes I also use my Smart-Phone Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) for dxing and Earphones as FM radio antenna.
