Radio Taiwan International (via Paochung)

Radio Taiwan International, transmitting from Paochung (Taiwan), was logged on 13 December 2016. An English language broadcast, from 11.00 till 12.00 UTC, featured the programmes  "Hear in Taiwan", "Book of Odes" and "Status Update". "Book of Odes", hosted by Charlie Storrar, profiled one of the major poets and poetry from the Tángshī Dynasty. It, and "Status Update" reported on the historically significant tourist sites from the Japanese Occupation period, were quite fascinating and informative. This is one of the reasons I love listening to short-wave broadcasters like RTI; the programmes can be quite educational.

Reception on 11.600 kHz during this period was (SINPO) 44343 -- good signal strength and clear audio, despite slight fading and a persistent, annoying atmospheric noise under signal. An hour earlier, during the Indonesian broadcast, reception was stronger and without the noise.

Reception report was emailed and submitted online. QSL card arrived in the mail on 29 December 2016.
