Strange item ! According to RRI German letterbox today Dec 17:
RRI German at 1200-1300 UT suffered by severe echo on 11940 kHz in past
weeks. Many complaints by the German language listener audience occured
then. The technical editor Alexandrescu discovered the cause, that both
outlets used 11940 kHz via Galbeni EaROM and Tiganesti SoROM sites, and
never synchronicized the audio !! see WRTH page 465.
One tx site moved to 11790 kHz now.
RRI Italian noted on 7170 kHz at 1630-1700 today Dec 17. [x7135??]
