I was lucky to hear in february 2014 station “RTI iLoveMusic” on the medium wave 1557kHz. I sent a few reception reports. Every time I got a not detailed QSL card, even after dx-er Eckhard Röscher from Dessau-Rosslau in Germany offered an other e-mail address. Thereupon EcKhard suggested to try it for me. So he sent via the same e-mail address my reception report to Mrs. Eva Triendl from the German office of RTI. He tried to explain my situation that I received the QSL but without details. He told her how difficult it is to catch medium wave signals from Taiwan here in Europe and that the DX-er are a group of strange and crazy people, who need the success in case of a detailed QSL!
And really, after three weeks I got the full detailed QSL below from Taiwan. Thank you very much for your help Eckhard. I appreciate that really!
