Hello Patrick, my name is Anthony Curran, I am parish priest of the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary Immaculate in Portglenone, I was pleased that you were able to pick up the radio transmission of Mass in Austria. Technology continues to surprise me. Thank you for you email.
Anthony

You very well could consider that an 11m church broadcast QSL!

Did he mention what sort of equipment his church uses?  I imagine a lot of these churches are running "street legal" 4 watt radios (and some are probably running a lot more than that) but they're using high performance antennas mounted on top of the church.
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers

Yes they do QSL. And return percentage is higher than those of broadcsting stations these days.

No. Itīs difficult to get information about the equiment as most of the priests have no technical knowledge about it.
Legal power is 4 watt FM or 1 watt AM.
