CNR 1 (via Hailar, Inner Mongolia)

CNR 1, transmitting from Hailar, Inner Mongolia (a northeastern city that was formerly part of Manchuria) was logged on 24 April 2013. Light pop music hosted by a female announcer with piano music under was heard from 17.00 to 17.30 UTC (broadcast time 09.00 to 17.30 UTC). Reception of 10 kW transmitter on 4.750 kHz was (SINPO) 35333 -- fair signal strength with fading and some atmospheric noise, otherwise audible and discernible speech.  Bangladesh Betar and RRI Massakar thwart reception before 16.00 UTC.

Reception report was emailed to CNR and CRI the following day. CRI responded by email on 25 April 2013, confirming reception and promising to send a QSL card. This QSL, along with these delicate paper cut-outs of  fish, arrived in the mail 0n 16 May 2013.
