Taupo Maritime Radio, part of the New Zealand government’s Maritime Operations Centre, operates from the Avalon Television Studios in Lower Hutt, near Wellington.
Taupo Radio also monitors Marine VHF channel 16 via 30 remote stations around New Zealand, including the Chatham Islands.
Taupo Maritime Radio ZLM does not send a QSL card, or even an electronic QSL card, in response to reception reports.
Instead it provides a very bland document on corporate letterhead.
Here are some of these QSL reports, which are interesting at least as an historical record of frequencies and equipment used.
Do you have a QSL from Taupo Radio ZLM that we can add to this page?
Send us a message, and we’ll get right back to you.
