English Amateur Radio News (EARN)*

English Amateur Radio News (EARN)*, transmitting via Channel 292 in Inglostadt, Germany, was logged on 23 March 2015. A compilation of English language news broadcasts from National Radio Societies in Australia, the UK and US, including "QST Amateur Radio Newsline", was observed from 15.35 till 16.00 UTC. Additional programme content featured songs, including Billy Preston on "That's The Way God Planned It". Reception on 6.070 kHz was (SINPO) 54554 -- excellent signal strength and audio quality despite some tuning QRM.

HERE is a audio sample from this broadcast.

Reception report was emailed to both EARN and Channel 292 on 23 March 2015. Ed (DD5LP / G8GLM / VK2JI) for EARN replied with an email confirming reception and promising a QSL card when it is printed. The promised QSL card arrived in the mail on 20 April 2015. Surprisingly it was mailed from Germany, not England. Note the postage stamps on the envelope to the right.
