Deutsche Welle

Deutsche Welle (or German Wave translated into English) (DW) is Germany’s international public broadcaster. DW’s first shortwave broadcast took place on 3 May 1953. Over the years, DW broadcast programs in 42 languages over shortwave. In recent years, DW has moved most of its programming off from shortwave to satellite.

DW sent the QSL cards for 19 transmitter sites below for my reception reports. (Scroll down to view QSL cards)

Taegu, Korea

HLKT is the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation outlet for Daegu (Taegu), South Korea. The frequency of 810 kHz in South Korea is tough because of interference from the co-channel North Korean Korean Central Broadcasting System station and the South Korean jamming. AFN in Tokyo, Japan is also problematic. I managed to hear them one morning in Gunsan (Kunsan) when things are quiet. They replied with this QSL card for my reception report.

The Korean text on the card translates to “Thank you very much for your reception report. As a result of confirmation without error, we send you a verification of reception.”
