Radio Dialogue (via Madagascar)

Radio Dialogue "Giving You A Voice", with studio in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and transmitter site in Malagasy Talata Volondry, Madagascar, was logged on 1 December 2012. African pop music and community talk format was monitored from 16.45 to 17.00 UTC on 12.105 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 44433 -- good signal strength with atmospheric noise and fading, otherwise clear transmission. Signal was again logged on 2 December 2012. 

Reception reports for these dates were emailed and submitted on-line to Radio Dialogue on the same day and with subsequent follow-ups. I also designed and attached an eQSL (see above) for them. On 22 April 2013 I contacted the MGLOB relay station in Madagascar and received a reply the following day. On 23 April 2013, after repeated Facebook messages to Radio Dialogue, I received this acknowledgement:  "Thank you very much for report on our broadcast. We will send you (QSL)." In a follow-up email to MGLOB I received a reply on 1 October 2013 confirming transmission and promising to send a QSL card.
