QSL: MDR Info 1188

MDRInfoOne of many European stations which has ceased broadcasting on mediumwave in recent years is MDR (Mitteldeutcher Rundfunk) in Leipzig in Germany. Their 3 mediumwave transmitters used to broadcast on 783, 1044 and 1188 kHz, but was shut down on April 30, 2013. At that time, all three frequencies carried their news channel “MDR Info”.

MDR is the public German broadcaster for the federal states Thüringen, Sachsen and Sachsen-Anhalt. Just before Christmas I received I full detailed QSL-card for a  broadcast on their transmitter located at Reichenbach near the Polish border on 1188 kHz. This was for a report made at Lista in March 2013 just a month prior to the shut down of their AM transmitters.
