Deutsche Welle (Kigali, Rwanda)
Deutsche Welle (transmitting from Kigali, Rwanda) was heard in Russian on 20 May 2011. Their broadcast was monitored from 15.30 to 16.00 UTC (normal broadcast time is 15.00-16.00 UTC) on 15.620 kHz. Signal (SINPO) from 15.00 to 15.30 UTC was not received in Malaysia due to interference from FEBC in Manila, Philippines; at 15.30 UTC signal was weak but audible with some fading and QRN to produce a reception rating of 15321; by 15.45 UTC increasing QRN degraded audio quality to 15211.
Reception report was submitted on-line at Deutsche Welle's website. QSL card for this transmission was never received. However, a verification for DW's Kigali relay station was received for a subsequent reception report for 3 July 2011, on 11.835 kHz from 16.00 to 17.00 UTC. It arrived in the mail on 11 August 2011.
