Deutsche Welle (transmitting from Kigali, Rwanda) was heard in Russian on 20 May 2011. Their broadcast was monitored from 15.30 to 16.00 UTC (normal broadcast time is 15.00-16.00 UTC) on 15.620 kHz. Signal (SINPO) from 15.00 to 15.30 UTC was not received in Malaysia due to interference from FEBC in Manila, Philippines; at 15.30 UTC signal was weak but audible with some fading and QRN to produce a reception rating of 15321; by 15.45 UTC increasing QRN degraded audio quality to 15211.
Reception report was submitted on-line at Deutsche Welle's website. QSL card for this transmission was never received. However, a verification for DW's Kigali relay station was received for a subsequent reception report for 3 July 2011, on 11.835 kHz from 16.00 to 17.00 UTC. It arrived in the mail on 11 August 2011.
