VOA Sao Tome Principe 1530 in GER - WTF?!

Post by PFM907 » 06 Jan 2018 13:12

Hey there.
Yesterday I heard a french language news/talk px. (current affairs) on 1530 at the back of Romania.
Reception was in Nth. GER at the early evening with a portable receiver without any external antenna.
As there was no identification or call-sign within 30 minutes, I went on looking for sth. special.
Now, looking back in the listings, I see that this could have been VOA from "São Tomé e Príncipe".
Didn't even know they were back again with full power but it seems they are indeed.
I remember having read about a storm crushing the masts and the receiver running on reduced power some time ago.
This must have been like 6000 miles away!?
Unfortunately, I don't think there is any recording left as there was no trace in it of finding back the station's name. Shit :cry:
Hope this one will be on again tonight.

Hope you catch this one. They carry English IDs on the hour, but I cannot say exactly which hours.

Does Washington already have its summer timetable?
Just heard VOA signing on at 1801 UTC with Yankee Doodle tune.
According to schedule, this is not supposed to be.
Usually, sign-on at 1530 AM from STO is at 1829 UTC=1929 CET.
