Voice of Vietnam (via Moosbrunn)

Voice of Vietnam, transmitting from Moosbrunn (Austria), was logged on 13 June 2015.   The closing minutes of their English language broadcast was heard from 17.25 till 17.28 UTC, followed by Vietnamese from 17.30 till 18.28 UTC, then French from 18.30 till 18.57 UTC, all heard on the short-wave frequency of 9.625 kHz.

Reception at 17.25 UTC was (SINPO) 23432 -- poor to weak signal, occasionally clear and audible speech when not fading under QRM splatter from All India Radio on 9.620 kHz. By 18.00 UTC, QRM splatter was less noticeable as signal strength improved slightly to 24442. By 18.30 UTC, signal was better, clearly audible and stable, but remained relatively weak. This is not surprising owing that the Moosbrunn transmissions were inteneded for Western Europe.

Despite these conditions, station ID with lively Vietnamese melody began each broadcast, followed by news, current event reports about Vietnam and occasional Vietnamese pop music.

Reception reports were submitted to the English, Vietnamese and French sections at VoV on 14 June 2015. QSL card arrived in the mail on 7 July 2015.
