CVC International / The Voice Asia (via Tashkent)

CVC International (The Voice Asia), transmitting fromTashkent, Uzbekistan, was logged on 13 May 2012. A Mother's Day tribute of listener comments and music in Hindi was monitored: 18.55 to 20.00 UTC (broadcast time 14.00 to 20.00 UTC) on  6.260 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 35343 -- fair signal strength affected by slight atmospheric noise and minor fading, otherwise clear and audible speech throughout broadcast that was monitored.

Reception report was emailed to The Voice Asia. Wayne Merricks of the Voice Asia emailed the following day. Here's what he had to say regarding my reception report:
"Thanks for the info.  We broadcast out of the UK and aim to hit Northern India and Pakistan (via transmitters in Tashkent).  It must have been a good signal day to bounce that far and be audible.

"For your information, we're part of a bigger company that used to operate transmitter sites in Germany and Darwin in Northern Australia.  Sadly they were mothballed some years ago although I'm pretty sure the old Malaysia SW service is now Internet only.

"I'll pass your details on to the admin team, we don't get asked for QSL cards with any regularity any more so I'm not sure what we have available.  We can certainly send something your way. Happy monitoring."

Sonia Paul of Voice Asia replied with an eQSL on 16 May 2012.

  1. I'm listening to their program right now on 11665 broadcast out of Santiago Chile. I'm in Dayton, Ohio and it's coming in quite clearly (in Spanish). All the best.
