On April 10, 2019 I could catch the beacon of Radio Piraña on 6342 kHz. The QTH was somewhere in southern Europe and the power was only 1 watt. It surprises me that I could hear him so well: Radio Pirana beacon.mp3. Here you can see whether or not the beacon is in the air: http://www.radiopirana.com/index.php/en/. In response of my report I received a nice QSL. I sent my report to firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com.

MRI is a free radio station from the United States and can sometimes be heard here in Europe during the night between 6925 and 6955 kHz.

Radio Maria Italia is a new confirmation in my QSL collection of the Radio Maria organization.
