VORW Radio International (via Moosbrunn)

VORW Radio International, transmitting from Moosbrunn, Austria, was logged on 24 June 2022, from 16.00 till 17.00 UTC. Music requests from listeners and tips on how to to cope "bad news" was presented by John, the programme host. Reception on 9.670 kHz initially rated a SINPO of 44333 with a good signal but station scatter from a stronger station on an adjacent frequency, moderate fading and atmospheric noise. To improve reception, I switched from a passive loop to a 1/4 wave antenna, then set the receiver in 'narrow' IF shift mode. By 16.20 UTC reception steadily improved to a SINPO of 55444. HERE's how VORW (Moosbrunn) sounded near the end of their broadcast. 

Reception report was emailed the following day. An eQsl card arrived on 30 June 2022.
