Guangzhou Coast Radio Station (China)

Guangzhou Coast Radio Station in  Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, the People's Republic of China was logged on 10 April 2013. Occasional navigational communication and maritime weather from a female announcer, speaking in Mandarin, was observed between 12:20 to 01.05 PM (CST - Beijing time) / 04.20 to 05.05 UTC. The station also provides weather conditions at sea. Reception on 17.398 kHz / USB was (SINPO) 35453 -- fair signal strength with excellent clarity. 

Reception report was submitted to Guangzhou Coast Station on the same day. The station replied in Chinese later in the afternoon, confirming reception of their station. Using the original text from the email and image from their website, I created this eQSL (Note: QSL cards are no longer issued). Translation of the Mandarin text follows.

Dear Mr. Timm Breyel,

We have received your mail about radio reception. 

First, we have to make a correction. Our station is located in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, the People's Republic of China, not in the Republic of China (NOTE: the location stated in the English text of the reception report  was correct; apparently it was deleted in the Mandarin translation). 

We thank you for listening to our broadcast with interest. We confirm  the QSL reported in your mail was broadcast by our station.

 We hope you will continue to listen to our broadcast and let us know the reception conditions. This will help us to improve the quality of our broadcast and provide better services to ships.

Wish you great success at work and good health!
