WWVH (Kauai, Hawaii on 15 MHz)

WWVH in Kauai, Hawaii was logged on 9 January 2016, operating on the short-wave frequency of 15 Mhz. This was quite a feat as BPM - National Time Service Center in Shangqui Lintong, People's Republic of China broadcasts on the same frequency and pretty much dominates it. Reception on 15 MHz was (SINPO) 12551 -- audible speech of  female announcer presenting time on the minute in  English along with times pips were heard mixing under BPM's stronger time pips, from 07.45 till 08.00 UTC.

Reception report was emailed to WWVH on 10 January 2016. Verification of WWVH was previously for reception on  2.5, 5 and 10 MHz. WWV in Fort Collins has been QSLed on 15, 20 and 25 MHz. Quite naturally, this would be a nice addition. On 13 January 2016, Adela Mae P. Ochinang, NIST-WWVH Secretary, replied with confirmation stating: "Thank you for your reception report and your interest in WWVH. This is to notify you that a QSL card, Serial #23013 for your reception report will be mailed today. Aloha." QSL card arrived in the mail on 21 January 2016.
