Radio Merkurs via Radio Revival (Sala, Sweden)

Radio Merkurs* with studio based in Riga, Latvia, was logged transmitting on shortwave from Radio Revival in Sala, Sweden on 27 December 2014. A selection of evergreen / swing music with occasional DJ comments between songs, including performances by Frank Sinatra, a tango tune, German and Latvian language songs(?), a solo guitar song, was observed from 13.00 to 13.45 UTC.

Swing music continued up until 15.00 UTC. Reception on 6.065 kHz was (SINPO) 24332 -- poor to weak signal strength with minor station interference, atmospheric noise and fading. Nevertheless music was occasionally clear and audible. MW frequency (1485 kHz) of Radio Merkurs was inaudible at the same time the SW transmission aired.

Reception report was emailed to Radio Merkurs and Radio Revival on the same day. On 29 December 2014 Ronny Forslund, the engineer at Radio Revival, stated Radio Revival had no QSL card at present and advised emailing reception report to Radio Merkurs. A follow up report was sent on 30 December 2014. This self-made QSL is based on an email confirmation received from Raimonds Kreicbergs at Radio Merkurs on 1 January 2015.
