Haiphong Radio / Vietnam Maritime Communication & Electronics LCC (VISHIPEL) was logged on 24 March 2013 (25 March 2013 in South East Asia). With headquarters based in Hai Phong City, Haiphong Radio was observed broadcasting maritime weather reports from Da Nang, Ben Thuy and Ho Chi Minh from 23.35 to 00.10 UTC. Every 10 minutes Haiphong Radio signed on with a beeping ring tone, followed by a female announcer presenting each coastal station's maritime weather report in Vietnamese and mentioning frequencies "kilohertz", then back to beeping ring tone until transmission closed. Reception on 7.906 kHz in USB mode was (SINPO) 44444 -- good audio quality and strength with only minor interference.
A reception report was emailed shortly afterwards. QSL-letter was received by email on 25 March 2013.
