All India Radio Mumbai (via Bhopal)

All India Radio (AIR) Mumbai, transmitting from Bhopal, was received on 5 December 2013, during extended radio coverage of the India vs South Africa cricket match. Commentary on the players and event, advertisements for "Jago Grahak Jago" and snippets of English and Hindi pop tunes were observed from 18.55 to 19.50 UTC. Reception on 4.810 kHz was (SINPO) 44444 -- good signal strength with minor fading and atmospheric noise, otherwise a terrific audio clarity.

An audio sample of this broadcast may be heard HERE.

Reception report was emailed the following day. Hopefully a response from AIR will be forthcoming. After a follow-up email to Spectrum Manager in May, I received an email on 15 May 2014. QSL card indeed arrived in the mail on 22 August 2014.
