The Voice of Tibet (via Talata, Madagascar)

The Voice of Tibet, a clandestine station sponsored by the Oslo-based Voice of Tibet Foundation, broadcasting via Talata, Madagascar was heard on 26 April 2011 from 14.00 to 14.30 UTC on 17.560 kHzTibetan language programme featured  news/commentary.

Reception was very strong at (SINPO) 43554, except for some interference from an adjacent station broadcasting Chinese music in attempt to drown out the broadcast; I note this as the same music was played on previous nights.

Signal was best received on my Grundig Satellit 500. It locked on to the Voice of Tibet's signal, whereas my Grundig Satellit 750 and Sangean ATS-909 received the interfering station's signal more clearly. Reception report was sent by email and post. QSL card arrived in the mail from India on 26 November 2011.  

Tenzin Peldon, Editor-in-Chief for Voice of Tibet, emailed this message after sending several emails to VOT, regarding my request for their QSL card: "Please accept our apology for not being able to write back to you. We have our reasons but I know there are no excuses. We don't have an eQSL right now so a normal QSL would be posted to you as ASAP. Thank you for your mail and all the best with your work."
