All India Radio Stations on 60 Meter Band

Several All India Radio stations, broadcasting with no more than 50 kW transmitters, are heard on the 60 Meter Band after 15.00 UTC, here in Malaysia. These include Leh on 4.760 kHzImphal on 4.775 kHz, Chennai on 4.800 kHz, Mumbai on 4.810 kHz and 4.840 kHz, Kolkata on 4.820 kHz and 5.040 kHz, Lucknow on 4.880 kHzJaipur on 4.910 kHz, Guwahati on 4.940 kHz, Shillong on 4.970 kHz, Srinagar, Kashmir on 4.950 kHz, Thiruvananthapuram on 5.010 kHz and New Delhi on 5.015 kHz. Signal strength varies from station to station; generally most are only fair in strength with moderate or no QRN and QRM. The strongest signals received are in New Delhi, Mumbai, Shillong and Kolkata. I have heard a few cricket matches, news programmes and local songs. All I need to do now is monitor and submit reception reports for the respective stations to AIR.

Reception reports for these stations have been submitted at AIR's on-line website, and emailed and posted to respective stations. QSL cards are pending verification.
