The Mighty KBC (via Plovdiv, Bulgaria)

The Mighty KBC in a test transmission to North America from Plovdiv, Bulgaria  was logged on 21  October 2012. Music and a male announcer was heard from 01.50 to 02.00 UTC (broadcast time 01.00 to 02.00 UTC) on 9.500 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 14321 -- a terribly weak signal hampered by atmospheric noise and fading prevented clear reception. Despite these conditions, I was able to detect a weak carrier signal with occasional audio when the signal peaked upward. Surprisingly, I received this eQSL despite limited content and very poor reception. My intention was merely to report what I observed.

A reception report was emailed and sent on-line to The Mighty KBC shortly after the broadcast ended. This eQSL came in response to the on-line submission within six hours.
