brief radio romania international log

25 Oct 2015, 2350 UTC. I've been listening on and off to Radio Romania International, English on 6015 kHz via the UTwente websdr. The broadcast was loud and clear, with the S-meter hitting S9+40. After they read a huge list of social networks in which they participate, they announce that their programming is also available on mobile phones. I was expecting to hear about some smartphone app or another, but instead they gave out a United States phone number.

At the close of the hour, the announcer (or a recording) stated that programming was also available in WMA, MP3, and AAC+ formats. They gave out the email address engl@rri.ro. Then I heard their standard closing melody of nine notes repeated until an abrupt end of the signal at 2357 UTC.
