All India Radio - Lucknow

All India Radio, transmitting from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh (India), was logged on 30 September 2015. Product advertisements, the occasional Hindi song, news, radio drama and listener phone-in was observed from 12.55 till 13.40 UTC (broadcast time 12.15 till 17.40 UTC). Reception on 4.880 kHz at 12.55 UTC was (SINPO) 35433 - fair signal strength, audible and clear speech, despite slight atmospheric noise and fading. Transmitter closed abruptly at 13.22 UTC; transmission resumed at 13.27 UTC. At 13.37 UTC, there was increased QRM and QRN from transmitter droning and atmospheric noise, which degraded reception to 12221; at this point there was no discernible audio.

Reception report was emailed to Spectrum Management the following day. A few days later I posted the reception report as well. It was submitted without an audio file, so we'll see how it goes. On 11 November 2015 the above QSL card arrived in the mail.
