Radio Rwanda

Radio Rwanda in Kigali was heard on  27 August 2012. A French language broadcast consisting of African pop tunes and moderated by a male announcer was monitored from 20.00 to 20.40 UTC. Transmission occurred on the frequency of 6.055 kHz, Reception (SINPO) was 34333 -- fair signal strength with slight interference and fading, otherwise clear and audible speech and music was noted.

To help assess the reception quality and verify some of the station content of Radio Rwanda on 27 August 2012, between 20.00 to 20.40 UTC, a sound file may be heard at this LINK.

Reception report was submitted on the following day. I have made numerous attempts by email and post since 2011 to secure a QSL, but have been unable to receive this prized verification in any  shape or form, be it card, eQSL or letter. Hopefully fortune will favour me this time around. Thanks a lot we will send you a card soon.

On 3 September 2012, Ms. Faith Mbabazi of Radio Rwanda replied with the following message, indirectly confirming my reception report: "Thanks a lot we will send you a card soon. (Sent from my BlackBerry® smartphone powered by MTN)."
