Raidió Teilifís Éireann / MGLOB (via Talata Volondry)

Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTE) via MGLOB in Talata-Volonodry was heard on 20 May 2016.  An English language broadcast featuring reports on politics in Ireland and TCT automobile financing was heard from 19.30 till 19.45 UTC (broadcast time 19.30 till 20.00 UTC).  Reception on the short-wave frequency of 5.820 kHz was (SINPO) 23431 -- poor signal strength, utility QRM, fading under noise and occasionally inaudible. By 19.45 UTC, signal had completely disappeared. A month or so back propagation was much better, allowing for the 30-minute broadcast to be received in its entirety.

Reception report was emailed to both MGLOB and RTE on the same day. Both responded within a few hours. On 21 May 2016, RTE Information Office emailed, saying: "We have sent your e-mail to our team that look after qsl cards" This eQSL was received on 9 June 2016.
