Vatican Radio (via Uzbekistan)

Vatican Radio,  transmitting from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, was logged on 5 January 2012. An English language broadcast was heard from 15.30 to 15.50 UTC. Topics included discussions on Catholicism in southern India,  Islamic Shariah law and reports on North Korea and Philippines. Transmission was observed on 7.585 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 45433 -- good signal strength, but atmospheric noise degraded the quality of the transmission.

A reception report was emailed on the same day. Follow-up emails were submitted multiple times to multiple email addresses. Finally on 2 August 2012, this QSL card and two additional QSLs for previous reports arrived in the mail. Vatican Radio stickers, programme schedule and brochure about Vatican Radio came with the QSLs.
