The Cross Radio - Pacific Missionary Aviation (Pohnpei, Federated Micronesia)

The Cross Radio - Pacific Missionary Aviation, transmitting with 1000 watts (1 kW) of power from Pohnpei, Federated Micronesia, was  logged on 5 January 2014. Uninterrupted contemporary Christian music in English language was heard from 17.45 to 19.05 UTC.  Reception on 4.755 kHz at 17.45 UTC was (SINPO) 24332 -- weak signal but clearly audible with fading and atmospheric noise. At 18.15 UTC increased fading degraded reception to 24322. By 18.45 UTC reception was 13321 -- faint audio, station splatter from Bangladesh Betar (election coverage).

Reception report was emailed the following day with follow-up emails. On 17 February 2014 I received an email  with QSL letter and blank QSL cards from veri-signer and station manager, Sylvia Kalau. I rearranged this into the self-prepared QSL shown here. To receive a paper QSL one needs to send US$1.25 and self-addressed sticker. 

PMA is good verifier. This is the second time in the past five years I have contacted and received their QSL, always from Sylvia Kalau.
