It was heard here, in South East Asia, from 04.27 to  05.30 UTC on 17.880 kHz. Reception (SINPO) throughout this one hour broadcast was 43444 -- fair signal strength, despite occasional station splatter from an adjacent broadcaster and minor fading. The programming featured pop music of the 60s and 70s, along with details of scheduled broadcasts to various continents, congratulations from international broadcasters and radio listeners.

A reception report was email shortly after the broadcast. Later in the evening an email and eQSL arrived.
