AWR-Wavescan (via Trincomalee)

Adventist World Radio - Wavescan, transmitting from Tricomalee, Sri Lanka, was received on 7 October 2012. Dr. Adrian Peterson profiled early Olympic radio coverage in Germany and Radio Australia's transmitters used during the Melbourne Games in 1956. Afterwards he featured a report on early short-wave jamming transmitters. This was followed by Toshi Ohtake's presentation of the Japan Shortwave Club DX Report. This broadcast was monitored from 15.30 to 16.00 UTC on 15.255 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 45333 -- good signal strength with atmospheric noise and fading, otherwise speech was clear and audible.

A reception report was emailed to Wavescan and JSWC shortly after the broadcast. Kazuhiko Iwasa (岩沙一彦), QSL Manager for Japan Shortwave Club (JSWC)replied with this eQSL and email the following day: "Thank you for your reception report.We are pleased to confirm that you have heard our program. Your valuable opinions on our programmes will always be appreciated." A QSL from AWR arrived in th email on 6 November 2012.
