Weak signal was also in Ukraine with SINPO up to 24422. Deep and continuous fade-outs, quite difficult copy. Received with XHData D-808 and 80 mb dipole this time. Thanks for the show!

That was a decent signal in Kyiv again. SINPO = 35433-45433. Thanks for the show!

The fax chart has been received on the 2nd of June 2019 on 6328.5 kHz (center frequency). Weather fax transmissions are quite regular at 20.00 UTC (±2 minutes) and are being probably provided by RBW41 Murmansk. Facsimile broadcasts at other time slots are also possible on this frequency: the station was observed by other DXers at 03.30, 04.50, 10.30, 13.30 and 14.50 UTC too. Unfortunately, the most of information about RBW41 in the Worldwide Marine Radiofacsimile Broadcast Schedules by the National Weather Service of NOAA is outdated.

As the station uses inverted shift, the signal must be received in LSB mode (instead of USB) for the correct decoding. The quantity of shift is also non-standard: 1000 Hz. Other settings: 120 RPM / 576 IOC, with no APT.

The main trouble during reception of these transmissions at 20.00 UTC is the constant heavy QRM from another russian utility station on 6328 kHz using CIS-36-50 mode. One can see the disturbance as a wide white strip on the decoded chart.

QSLs Received / Re: Paper QSL's?

This list is IMHO (based on my personal experience and information from other DXer's blogs in Internet). It is probably incomplete, so any additions and corrections are greatly welcome. Please note, that there are only international stations in this list (mentioned in the "International Radio" section of WRTH), because some local stations (e.g. Rádio Nacional da Amazônia or Radio Nikkei) are still sending paper QSLs too, but they are absent there.

And yes, Bible Voice seems to be also a regular "paper QSLer". Thanks. I included this station into my list. The same for Radio Exterior de España (didn't know the current QSL-status for them).

As for China Radio Int'l, Voice of Indonesia, Radio Romania Int'l and Radio Vatican: some language sections (not all) are still sending paper QSLs.

PBS Xizang / Holy Tibet / China Tibet Broadcasting: I have sent reception reports several times to them (by snail mail too) and even received some promises of QSL once, but still never got any paper confirmation from this station. No any reply from the Voice of Tibet. Never received any QSLs from Radio Kuwait after many years of sending reception reports either, only nice table-top calendars yearly. So, the result is strictly depends on a personal luck too.

SINPO = 34433 in Kyiv. Thanks for the show!

00.37 - The Clash - Tommy Gun.

This time reception was realized using XHData D-808 DSP pocket receiver and 80 mb dipole antenna:

Strange, I have heard Talking Heads - Psycho Killer on this frequency, right when others heard ABBA.
