Radyo Pilipinas (via Tinang)

Radyo Pilipinas, transmitting from Tinang, was logged on 10 April 2017.  I had the good fortune to hear DZRP Radyo Pilipinas on the short-wave frequency of 17.820 kHz. SINPO rated 45544 -- good signal, clear audio despite fading. Reception was also observed on 15.640 kHz with a SINPO of 55555.

English programming was observed from 02.45 UTC till 03.30 UTC. This particular broadcast  featured "DFA Online" Philippine Embassy/Consulate news; "The Best of Philippines"  profiled the Rizal shrine in Calamba, Laguna;  "School of Filipino", hosted by Edwin Santos, looked at the Filipino phrase for "I'm sorry"; and  "More Fun in the Philippines: Destination Mindanao" highlighted  the "People of the Flood Plain" -- their regional music and festivals in this Muslim autonomous region of Mindanao. Four songs were also played, including one by a group from Kota Bato. Additionally, the broadcast included numerous station IDs.

Reception report was emailed on the same day. Shortly thereafter, Radyo Pilipinas replied with confirmation and promised a QSL card. On 7 June 2017, verification card indeed arrived in the mail, along with their programme schedule and station sticker.
