KVOH - Voice of Hope (California)

KVOH - Voice of Hope, transmitting from Simi Valley, California (USA) was logged on 7 April 2015. The programme "Musica y Ministerio" (religious music and commentary presented by a male announcer) was monitored from 18.45 till 19.00 UTC (broadcast time 14.00 till 19.00 UTC). Reception on 17.775 kHz was (SINPO) 25421 -- a weak but audible signal, with frequent fading and slight atmospheric noise was observed.

Previous attempts to receive WVOH in Malaysia had proved futile until today. Ideal propagation, standard operating frequency, Spanish language content and sign-off at 19.00 UTC made  it possible to identify WVOH; otherwise the station might have gone unnoticed. To say the least, I was lucky to catch this one.

Reception report was emailed on 8 April 2015. A few hours later Ray Robinson, the Operations Manager at WVOH, replied with confirmation and the promise of a QSL card, saying: "Greetings, Timm!  Thank you for this report.  We'll be very happy to send you our QSL card". QSL card arrived in the mail on 11 June 2015.
