QSL FROM ‘RADIO MARIA BELGIUM’

Radio Maria is currently in Belgium on different FM frequencies and on DAB +. However, after 31 december 2017 they lose all their FM frequencies in Belgium. For me it was a reason to write a FM reception report: I sent the report to Giampiero Bernardini in Italy, QSL manager of the Radio Maria Organisation, qsl@radiomaria.org.
