Radio Taiwan International (RTI) Shortwave Transmissions to Europe, from Tamsui

As is tradition, Radio Taiwan International (RTI) will broadcast directly to Europe, from its shortwave facilities in Tamsui.

The broadcasts will be in German, but the schedule published by RTI’s German department (also in German) should be self-explanatory – the German vocabulary in this field isn’t too different from English. The announcement includes a preview of the QSL card that will be sent to confirm reception reports on this year’s direct broadcasts. It features a drawing of Taiwan’s National Radio Museum.

A member of the German broadcasting team reportedly attended Zhongyuan Festival (中元節) earlier this month, and asked for good propagation conditions.

RTI’s German service broadcasts thirty minutes daily, from Kostinbrod transmission site in Bulgaria, on 5900 kHz, from 19:00 to 19:30 UTC (coordinated universal time). These programs appear to be frequently heard all over western and central Europe, as well as in Russia and other formerly Soviet states.

While direct broadcasts from Taiwan in German are a once-in-a-year exception, programs in Russian from Tamsui can be heard daily, on 9590 kHz, from 14:00 to 15:00 UTC. Another transmission in Russian is broadcast via Kostinbrod, from 17:00 to 17:30 UTC.
