Radio France International (via Meyerton)

Radio France International, using the SENTECH transmitter facility in Meyerton, South Africa, was logged on 20 June 2014. A French language broadcast covering the World Cup match of Argentina, moderated by two male announcers,  was observed from 19.40 till 20.00 UTCReception on 9.800 kHz was (SINPO) 44544 -- good signal strength, despite mild transmitter droning and occasional, but slight fade. At 19.58 UTC a DRM transmission began, knocking out RFI's signal. 

Reception report was emailed to SENTECH and RFI the following week. RFI sent this eQSL on 12 August 2014. SENTECH took a bit longer to respond with their QSL, which arrived on 27 March 2015.
