While I have not heard them before, I will definitely be trying to catch the broadcast this weekend, and I will have my recording gear ready! Let us know if you have a successful reception report to share!
Edit: I mistakenly listed Saturday at the top but the correct date is the one in the post, Sunday. Sorry!!

I received my e-QSL from Radio Oomrang this morning! It shows two photos of the transmitter building and rotating antennas at Nauen, Germany.
Yes, I got mine this morning too! Most impressive, and by far the fastest turnaround time I have ever experienced with a QSL card!
I nearly forgot and slept in, but… rhttps://youtu.be/TQ0JTt0LvwEeceived Radio Oomrang this morning: 35343 from 1600-1603 UTC. Sangean ATS-909X/long random wire. Here is video. I forgot to bring up the RF gain before :55 seconds into this 2:00 smart phone video. https://youtu.be/TQ0JTt0LvwE
My location is Northern California.
Glad you guys could hear it, I guess I’m right in the dead zone, can’t even see a hint of a carrier on the waterfall.
Coming into N. KY very clearly – listening on LSB with S7 signals, peaking S9 on a Gap Titan Vertical/Kenwood 2000; also coming in clearly on my Sony 7600GR indoors with built-in whip.
I picked it up in about 8 s units here In Fort Worth Texas on a 16 foot CB antenna with a Kenwood Ts140 no e broadcast.
Great signal here in Illinois, USA. Using my ICOM R-75 with par EndFedZ antenna. Great program, really enjoyed it.
Coming in loud and clear on the east coast of Canada (Nova Scotia) using a Grundig Satellite 750 and internal antenna. Very cool!
Strong into Central Ohio via a 37′ attic-based wire antenna to my SDRplay RSP.
Can’t hear a thing :/
“This once-a-year broadcast could be an interesting challenge for folks on Saturday”
The date in the article, of Feb 21st, is on a Sunday. Is this broadcast on Saturday the 20th or Sunday the 21st? Thanx and 73
J.D. Thanks for catching this – I had Saturday on the brain when I should have written Sunday. Sorry for the confusion! 73, Robert
Kind of funny that this is coming from my neck of the wood (the Media Broadcast transmitter is near Berlin tho) and I would’ve missed it if I wouldn’t read an American blog in English. 🙂 Great opportunity to use SDR#’s scheduler (so I really don’t miss it)!
