Good signal here on 11990 at 1715 UTC, but the audio sounds a bit distorted.

Audio came on about 40 seconds late and went off 40 seconds late, pity about the audio quality. It will be interesting to see if the 9700 kHz test sounds any better.

The 9700 kHz carrier has just come on, not as strong as 11990 was, but it will be interesting to see how it sounds when the audio comes on.

They seem to be having problems with the audio, very distorted and broken now, I can just about tell that a man is speaking. Pity really as I have 5 green lights and it should be perfect.

They sorted out the broken audio problem about 1818, but it was still distorted/overdriven unfortunately. Hopefully they will have fixed the problems by the time the Sunday broadcasts take place.

Distortion

My auto-log function stood me up, so no log. Regarding the audio, it has been very distorted in ALL their tests in the past. I have told them several times, but they don't seem to understand (or monitor their transmissions).

Good choice!

Well, 9 kHz is a bit odd on short wave but on the other hand, even if it is not recommended, Mode A has been successful in many cases in the past. According to my records RTI has always used Mode A and the (distorted) audio was always up to 5000 Hz (but that was with 10 kHz, not 9 kHz DRM bandwidth). I have reported to Taiwan several times and always been rewarded with a QSL card in the post, but nobody seem to understand that the audio level is far too high which causes severe distortion. Otherwise I agree, the rest of the DRM configuration is a wise decision.
