Radio Öömrang via Broadcast Media GmbH was heard under extremely poor conditions on 21 February 2016, here in the Kuala Lumpur area. This largely talk oriented broadcast was moderated by a male announcer who interviewed listeners/residents of Amrum Island. Conversations alternated between English, Frisian and German.

Reception between 16.00 till 16.30 UTC (broadcast time 16.00 till 17.00 UTC) on 15.215 kHz was (SINPO) 15421. At sign-on only a very faint and fading carrier signal was present. Approximately 10 minutes into the broadcast speech was clearly, but weakly detected in LSB mode. Reception remained poor and at times completely inaudible.

Reception report was emailed to Broadcast Media GmbH shortly after their broadcast ended. An eQSL arrived from Broadcast Media GmbH on the following day, 22 February 2016.
