U.K. 5SW Chelmsford - Jan 1928

A rare January 1928 QSL letter from the BBC experimental shortwave station 5SW at Chelmsford was possibly one of the first replies to be received in South Africa. 

The reported date of reception in Cape Town was on the 1st and 2nd November 1927 : at least 10 days before the official commencement date of the 11th November that year. 

The station operated on 11 750 kc with a power of 15 kw.
