Next in my log on Monday evening (18th October 2021) was Radio Romania International on 15340 kHz on the 19m shortwave band.
I tuned in at 1332 UTC. They were broadcasting in the Romanian language.
Radio România Internaţional is owned by the Romanian public radio broadcaster Societatea Română de Radiodifuziune. Prior to 1989, the station was known as Radio Bucharest.
The first experimental broadcast by Romania for listeners abroad was in 1927. They consisted of music programs. The first official broadcast in Romanian was broadcast on the 1st day of November 1928 on a 400-watt transmitter in the 401/6 metre band. The first formal broadcasts in foreign languages of the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Corporation were during the early 1930s.

Radio Romania’s signal was coming in nicely with a good signal and no interference from adjacent stations.
Below is a short video of my reception of Radio Romania International as heard on the Yaesu FTdx101MP and the dipole.
