Radio Marabu

Radio Marabu*, transmitting from Belm, Germany, was logged on 8 August 2014. Alternative pop and contemporary jazz, with frequent station IDs and comments from a female DJ, was monitored from 14.30 to 15.15 UTC. Reception on 6.240 kHz was (SINPO) 24322 -- weak but audible signal, clear whenever fading, minor QRM and atmospheric noise was not present. Station was logged using a remote SDR receiver in the Netherlands. I might add I truly enjoyed their music format and selection, especially the jazz!!! Will have to tune in again.

Reception report was emailed to Radio Marabu on the same day. On 4 November 2014, after a long wait and no reply, I submitted the reception report to Radio Marabu at their Facebook page. Immediately I received a reply, albeit one short of verification, stating "Sensational. Greetings from Germany".  On 28 November 2014, Reiner at Radio Marabu emailed to say QSL was in the mail entire to me. QSL card, bookmarker, programme and transmission schedules arrived in the mail on 9 December 2014, Danke, Reiner!
