Rhein-Main EDXC Special Broadcast (via Sitkunai)

Rhein-Main EDXC Special Broadcast, transmitting from Sitkunai, Lithuania, was logged on 13 December 2014. Club moderator for this broadcast, Heinz Schultz, provided station ID/jingle, contact addresses and  details of the EDXC Conference held in Nice, France in September of this year. This was noted every 15 minutes of so, between interviews conducted by Toshi Ohtake of the Japanese Shortwave Club (JSWC). World renowned DXers, Anker Petersen, Denk Anderson and others, were featured in the broadcast. Transmission closed with an Eric Clapton song, "My Father's Eyes". Reception from 21.00 to 22.00 UTC on 11.690 kHz was less than ideal. SINPO was little better than 24321, here in Malaysia. Overall, reception was poor but with an audible signal between long fades and severe atmospheric noise, which lasted pretty much throughout the transmission. Thank you, Michael Haun!
