Voice of Vietnam (via Woofferton)

Voice of Vietnam, in a Russian language broadcast from Woofferton (UK), was heard on 15 March 2014. Programmes on Vietnamese current events with snippets of Vietnamese music  was monitored from 20.15 to 20.30 UTC, a broadcast that normally airs from 20.00 to 20.30 UTC. Reception on 6.135 kHz, in the 15 minutes I listened, was  (SINPO) 34443 -- fair signal strength with clear audio despite some atmospheric noise.

Generally good to respond with a QSL, Voice of Vietnam Russian and English language departments were emailed a few days later. On 18 March I received an email from VoV in Russian confirming and promising a QSL: "Уважаемый Timm Breyel! Мы очень рады получить ваш рапорт о приеме. Как обычно, отправим Вам QSL-карточки по обычной почте. Надеемся, что Вы будете слушать наши передачи, поддерживать переписку и присылать новые рапорты. С уважением и наилучшими пожеланиями! Русская редакция Радио Голос Вьетнама." On 7 April 2014, a QSL indeed arrived, along with a postcard and programme scedule, all in Russian.
