Echo of Europe, although targeting Europe, was logged in Southeast Asia on Tuesday, 27 May 2014. A French language broadcast of news featured a discussion on European politics from 18.30 to 18.45 UTC. Transmission closed with brief instrumental music. Reception on 7.315 kHz was poor, yet audible with (SINPO) of 24331 -- weak signal, fading and atmospheric noise was observed on an otherwise clear frequency once CRI signed-off at 18.26 UTC. Had co-channel interference existed from another broadcaster their transmission would most probably have not radiated to this region of the world.
Reception report was emailed and submitted on-line to Echo of Europe immediately after the transmission. An email from Echo of Europe promised to mail a paper QSL. This was followed up with an email to Media Broadcast GmbH who sent an eQSL on the same day. QSL card and letter arrived in the mail from France on 5 June 2014.
