The Voice of Armenia (Public Radio of Armenia) in Yeravan, the Republic of Armenia was monitored on 19 April 2011 between 18.00 to 18.30 UTC on 4.810 kHz. An Arabic language broadcast was heard with mostly talk and a few vocal songs. All India Radio in Mumbai generally occupies this frequency before 17.45 UTC.
Unfortunately their signal (SINPO) was extremely weak and marred by heavy QRN and fading at 15111. To say the least, their signal was barely audible, save for music and the voice of a male announcer.
The transmission was received best on a Grundig Satellit 500, using a simple external 10 meter random wire aerial. Signal was also detected with Sangean ATS-909, using a 1/4 wave aerial elevated at a height of 10 meters. My Grundig Satellit 750/Tecsun S-2000 was virtually deaf with the 1/4 aerial set up.
Reception report was submitted by mail and email. QSL is pending.
