Voice of Vietnam recorded in London, UK on September 2, 2015 at 2030 UTC on the frequency of 9730 kHz using a Lowe HF-150 radio with the Lowe PR-150 preselector, DX Engineering NCC-1 phaser connected to two Wellbrook ALA1530S+ antennas (positioned indoors) to mitigate severe local man-made interference. This was a special broadcast dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Vietnam's declaration of independence.
The transmitter has a power rating of 100 kW and is located in Hanoi, Vietnam. Due to a malfunctioning of the recorder, there were several short gaps in the recording, which were filled in using an earlier (weaker) recording of same broadcast on 7280 kHz at 1900 UTC on the same day. The gaps were as follows:
01:30.619s - 6.415 seconds long
02:08.512s - 1.486 seconds long
02:44.216s - 3.366 seconds long

This broadcast of the Voice Of Vietnam comes from a UK relay that targets North America shortwave listeners. Voice of Vietnam is interesting primarily because it comes from a communist nation. Voice of Vietnam is far more western in it's broadcasting style then Voice of Korea (one of my most listened to shortwave stations). however it's still not nearly as western as China International Radio, which uses anchors with American accents and uses the same style of reporting as domestic news broadcasts here in the states.
I used a Tecsun PL-600 connected directly into the external microphone jack of a Olympus VN-702 digital voice recorder from the headphone jack of the above mentioned receiver. I adjusted the volume of the receiver's audio output so that it didn't overload the voice recorder. The radio employed a whip antenna (about 3 feet long fully extended) and was placed in a location of my house where shortwave broadcasts receive the best.
