GSV is a new Scottish station which has been putting out a (weak) signal over the last few days. This morning, the op, Jim, was testing a different antenna giving a very much bigger signal at this QTH. I am looking forward to receiving this station with an even bigger signal soon. Best wishes to GSV Scotland.

I sent a reception report to GSV and got this great eQSL within an hour or two!
