RTL Luxembourg 234 AM 20:10 UTC 12/31/22
« on: December 31, 2022, 2013 UTC »
Is anyone catching RTL’s last broadcast on 234 AM? Supposed to go off the air at midnight utc, writing a report to them hopefully they’ll send a special QSL card in the mail.

When I started tuning in, John Lennon was playing and just listened to Queen and now Hotel California from the Eagles.
Tecsun PL-880, MLA-30 plus loop antenna. Various sdrs.

Please eQSL to deserthawk1990@hotmail.com

at 0300utc 3-3-23 I brought up two European sdr's, one in Germany and one in England. 234 is gone. Listening to BBC on 198 right now.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
