NBC Radio Northern - Voice of the People of Oro (via Popondetta, PNG)

Front of self-prepared eQSL
NBC Radio Northern - Voice of the People of Oro, transmitting from Popondetta, Oro Province, Papua New Guinea, was logged on 10 February 2013. A broadcast in English / Hiri Motu was heard. Local music, station ID, bird chirping on the hour, followed by news and commentary was monitored from19.45 to 20.30 UTC.  Sign-on was at 19.00 UTC. Transmission was observed on 3.345 kHz. Reception (SINPO) at 19.45 UTC was 34332 -- weak signal, clearly audible, with atmospheric noise. By 20.30 UTC, reception quality worsened to 24321 -- still audible, less clarity due to increased atmospheric noise. Gradually signal dropped off by 20.40 UTC.

Reception report was emailed on the same day. I suspect this is futile, considering various email contacts do not elicit any response. In subsequent days, a letter will be posted.
