Vatican Radio (via Santa Maria di Galeria)

Vatican Radio, transmitting presumably from Santa Maria di Galeria,  was logged on 30 April 2014. Between 18.40 to 19.00 UTC, a priest and congregation recited the Rosary. Avé María was repeated many time, i.e. "Avé María, grátia pléna, Dóminus técum. Benedícta tu in muliéribus...". Broadcast closed with brief instrumental music, then Vatican Radio interval tune. Transmission was observed on the 19 metre frequency of 15.595 kHz. Good reception was noted with strong and clear signal, despite occasional atmospheric noise -- (SINPO) 45454.

Reception report was emailed to Vatican Radio the following day. Sergio Salvatori, Vatican Radio, Frequency Management, replied with this email on 2 May 2014: "Thank you for the report. I have sent you the requested QSL". Their QSL card, along with a calendar, arrived on 15 May 2014.
