24 февраля в 17:38 UTC впервые в Москве на средних волнах (657 kHz) принял Radio KAN (Israeli Broadcasting Corporation) на иврите. Сигнал средней силы с множеством атмосферных преград и замираний, но различить голос диктора и песни в эфире можно было. В тот же вечер без всяких иллюзий рапортовал на: firstname.lastname@example.org
На следующий день получил электронное письмо с таким содержанием:
Dear Mr. Igor Kolke,
Большое спасибо for your eMail. It was a pure pleasure and quite a surprise to discover that broadcast from Israel is being received overseas, with such a distance.
Your report has been checked and found correct. So, I can confirm that on February 24th 2018, at 17:38 UTC and on 657KHz, you listened to Kan Bet.
IPBC is the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation and Kan Bet is one of its 8 national radio channels.
The broadcast you were able to receive is from a 100KW TransRadio AM transmitter located in Yavne (south of Tel-Aviv).
This can be a great opportunity for me to invite you to our beautiful country and have you as a special guest at our studios. I can also arrange a visit at the station you received its broadcasts.
Yuval KÖhler -
Head of transmitters unit IPBC - KAN
