Radio Ukraine International (via WRMI)

Radio Ukraine International, broadcasting from WRMI transmitter facility in Okeechobee, Florida (USA), was logged on 25 September 2014. English language news/commentary about Ukraine and narrative with female announcer was observed from 23.30 to 00.00 UTC. Reception on 11.580 kHz at 23.30 UTC was (SINPO) 14331 -- poor signal and barely audible. By 23.45 UTC mostly carrier was present with occasional peaks of audio, but still very poor and remained so up till 00.00 UTC. By then, largely carrier and indecipherable speech was detected until the top of the hour when a Chinese language broadcaster blocked reception. Reception was most likely much better in North America and for the targeted area of Europe.

Reception report was emailed to WRMI and submitted on-line at Radio Ukraine International on 25 September 2014. RUI replied later on the same day promising to send their QSL, saying: "It's a great pleasure to hear from you. You were among the first listeners to respond to us after our first day broadcat on shortwaves. We will surely send you a QSL card and if one day you visit Kyiv, please, feel free to come to your friends from RUI in Khreshchatyk Street." Thank you, Radio Ukraine International! After nearly 1.5 years, a QSL card from WRMI for this RUI broadcast arrived in the mail.
