Introducing the Bayerischer Rundfunk

In 1991 German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk published this informative booklet that was sent out to listeners along with QSL cards and stickers. At the time they broadcast on 6085 kHz in the 49 metre shortwave band and were heard world-wide.

From 2005 until the end of September 2010, when 6085 kHz was closed down, BR often broadcast in the digital DRM mode. This was always a challenge to decode well in New Zealand due to strong interfering signals. However, some reception was possible, including on the last day of transmissions on 6085 kHz.
