Radio Pakistan

Radio Pakistan (External Service) of  Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) in Islamabad, Pakistan was heard on 10 December 2011. An Urdu language broadcast, with News in English, was monitored from 09.00 to 10.00 UTC on 15.725 kHz. Reception (SINPO) at 09.00 UTC was 35523 -- good signal strength and clarity of speech, despite fading. At 09.17 UTC signal remained strong, but there was only transmitter modulation and audio was muted. At 09.31 UTC audio feed returned but with an echo effect. At 09.45 UTC reception was 45544 -- loud and clear, despite continued echo effect to audio.

Reception report was submitted by email and PBC replied promptly my mail on 21 December 2011. I submitted this reception report to test the email service and availability of a new QSL card. PBC passed with surprising efficiency, but issued a previous QSL design which I already possessed.
