Deutsche Welle (via Yerevan-Gavar)

Deutsche Welle, transmitting from presumably Yerevan-Gavar, Armenia, was logged on 11 November 2014. An English language broadcast to Africa was logged from 07.00 to 07.30 UTC. Reception on  17.800 kHz was (SINPO) 24232 -- very weak signal, fair carrier strength but barely audible speech and music. Suffice it to say, there was no clear and discernible content, just a mix of faint audio and atmospheric noise. Reception strengthened at 07.30 UTC with stronger audio, although still very noisy. SINPO improved slightly to 24342 when transmitter was switched to Kigali relay site.

Reception report was submitted on-line and emailed to DW on the same day. An old Deutsche Welle QSL card was received on 15 January 2015.
