QSL FROM BELGIAN COAST STATION OSU- OOSTENDERADIO

I received “OSU-Oostenderadio” with a NAVTEX broadcast on 490 kHz. Along with a QSL Card, Oostenderadio also sent a personal letter in which they confirm my reception report. In it I read that they broadcast now from the antenna park in Wingene, West Flanders, Belgium. Since December 2015 is this their new transmitter location. Previously the broadcasts came from the transmitter park in Middelkerke (also in West-Flanders). I sent my report to the postal address on the QSL Card.
