HCJB - La Voz de los Andes

HCJB - La Voz de Los Andes, transmitting from Santiago, Chile, was heard on 25 September 2011. The broadcast was monitored from 23.50 to 00.45 UTC (usual broadcast time 23:00 to 00:45 UTC ) on 11.920 kHz. Religious talk and music was observed in the Portuguese language. Signal (SINPO) was 12111 --   extremely weak reception which only worsened after 00.10 UTC. Signal was barely audible and  only music was heard well. To eliminate much of the QRN and interference, the radio was set in SSB/LSB mode.

Reception report was submitted on-line at HCJB website and by post. After sending several emails, I finally obtained this eQSL through HCJB's German language website. It arrived on 10 November 2011. A follow-up QSL card and 2012 desktop calendar arrived in the mail on 8 December 2011. A second QSL card for the same report arrived on 8 September 2012; (See blog entry on 8 September 2012).
Iris Rauscher replied with this email:

Dear OM Timm,

They will be very exited to hear that you listened to the Program from Malaysia. Please find attached our QSL Card for September. Please find as well the new Program Schedule.

  1. I unexpectedly received this email from HCJB in German: "Danke, wir haben Ihre Email-Post erhalten.Gerne beantworten wir Ihre Zeilen. Haben Sie bitte Geduld mit uns. Sollten wir für einen Empfangsbericht Rückporto vorliegen haben, schicken wir Ihnen die Wunsch-QSL Karte auf den Postweg. Sonst schicken wir auch gerne eine e-QSL zu. Liebe Grüße aus der Redaktion, Iris Rauscher"

    hopefully, the e-QSL will be sent soon.
