With Voice of Russia transmitting less on short-wave, Irkutsk and Novosibirsk remain the only non-DRM transmitter sites operational. VOR appears to have turned their attention towards DRM, with transmissions emanating from Kaliningrad and Moscow-Taldom. Even with this I have to wonder how much longer the world's oldest short-wave broadcaster will remain on air. So, with this in mind, I set out to submit yet another reception report to VOR, which I emailed shortly after filling this report.
Elena Osipova, in the VOR Letters Department, sent this email confirming the aforementioned reception report, on 11 March 2014: "This is to thank you for your reception report. Please be informed that we have found it to be correct and gladly verify it by a QSL card which will be sent to you by regular mail. We wish you good and enjoyable listening and look forward to hearing from you soon again."
I received VOR's QSL card in the mail on 14 April 2014. As it turns out, VOR terminated their short-wave service at the end of March 2014. A second QSL fro the same transmission arrived in the mail on 15 May 2014. So, ends the glorious short-wave era of Voice of Russia (Radio Moscow). Glad I have this QSL for one of their last transmissions.
