Off the beaten track: DXing

Hello friends. After several days, I could find time to write this evening.

In one of my posts I had mentioned as to how I used to receive FM broadcasting stations from distant transmitters by fiddling around my TV and radio-receiver antennae, when working in Southern Africa.

Thanks to my Nikon TW2, I could get a snapshot of my experiment.

(Please ignore the `untidy' TV top in the pic).
