#865: QSL: NEW COUNTRY (#167). Gold FM Fiji 990 khz was heard last Sunday, Feb. 11th  About the same time as the Norwegians took gold, silver and bronze medals in the Olympics in Korea, I was listening on the Kiwi SDR in Kongsfjord with a 500 m beverage antenna and heard this station among others from the Pacific region.

Dion Cavu, producer, verified the report in an e-mail.  After the normal verification text, Dion says further: “We recently launched our AM frequency after a lapse of a number of years to cater to our far flung audiences in the outer islands as well as those in
the interior of the main islands and also act as a backup service in times
of natural disaster.
The strength of our frequency has surpassed all expectations and since the
launch, we have received messages from a number of DX enthusiasts in the
region and  around the world including Dx’ers from as near as Rotuma  and
New Zealand and as far as Finland and above the Arctic circle, which has
truly blown away all expectations of how powerful our AM signal is.”

#860: QSL. WNWR Philadelphia, PA 1540 khz verified my report today.  Mr. Alan Pendleton, President of the New World Radio Group signed the e-mail which was written partly in Norwegian. He tells me that his grandmother and grandfather came from Norway and Sweden respectively which was outrageous at the time. He is currently learning Norwegian.

His grandmother taught him this poem to say to his grandfather:

Ten thousand Sweedes ran through the Weedes
Chased by One Norwegian
Ten thousand more ran to the shore
In the battle of Copenhagen
Way, way back in history
Back when the world was new
Norwegians searched all over
To find some snoose to chew
They fished for Lutefisk and Torsk
It helped to make them strong
And you and me, we know a Norsk
Cannot do nothing wrong
But Sweedes and Danes were anxious
Of Viking trips and raids
The Viking shield and helmet horns
Made all those folks afraid
Throughout the world the Vikings sailed
To Ireland and France
They even found America
One afternoon by chance
My Grandpa says, and he should know,
The Sweedes made up their minds
To beat the Norsky Vikings
And kick a few “behinds”
But history, so my grandpa says,
Shows that the Norskies won
They clobbered all the Sweedes and Danes
And made it lots of fun
Ten Thousand Sweedes ran throught the Weedes
Chased by One Norwegian
The dust from the weedes made snoose for the Sweedes
And they called it Copenhagen
   – Hans Myhre.
