All India Radio Visakhapatnam (Akashvani Visakhapatnam)

All India Radio Visakhapatnam (Akashvani Visakhapatnam) in Andhra Pradesh was heard on 15 April 2016. Popular music and news was monitored from 17.00 till 17.43 UTC (10.30 pm till 11.13 pm, Visakhapatnam time). Overall reception on the medium-wave frequency of 927 kHz was (SINPO) 33423. Before 17.00 UTC, signal was difficult to receive due co-frequency mixing with a station in Chanthaburi, Thailand. When this Thai station closed, AIR Visakhapatnam transmission was weak to fair depending on the duration of fading (from 8 to 10 minutes). When signal was at its peak, audio was clear.

Reception report along with audio file was emailed to AIR Visakhapatnam and Spectrum Management the following day. A letter to Spectrum Management was posted in subsequent days. D.R. Prasad, Deputy Director General (Engg.), All India Radio,
Siripuram, Visakhapatnam  emailed on 18 April 2016 to confirm reception report.  On 10 May 2016, I received to QSL cards.

Thank you very much, D.R. Prasad! Not every AIR Engineer or Director at their respective stations has been as responsive as you, so I am tremendously grateful to receive your verification.
