Radio Thailand World Service (via Phuket Island)

Radio Thailand World Service (HSK9) via Phuket Island was heard on the medium-wave frequency of 1062 kHz, rating a SINPO of 33433 -- fair signal strength with occasionally clear audio content, despite co-frequency interference and moderate fading. This broadcast was simulcast on an FM outlet in Phuket as well; at one point, the ID for the FM station was announced. Apparently this station is designed to attract Western tourist visiting the island of Phuket, if one considers the music content. Western pop music with station IDs in English was observed from 13.05 till 13.30 UTC, on 6 November 2017. HERE is Radio Thailand in Phuket. John Lennon's song "Imagine" and Radio Thailand ID can be heard in this recording.

Reception report was emailed the following day. QSL card arrived in the mail on 6 January 2018.
