Radio Kuwait International

Radio Kuwait International, transmitting from  Sulaibiyah, was logged on 19 July 2012. An English language broadcast was monitored from 18.05 to 19.00 UTC (broadcast time 18.00 to 21.00 UTC). Islamic programmes on Ramadan, news and financial news on the region and mix of Islamic and Western music were observed on the frequency of 15.540 kHz. Reception (SINPO): at 18.05 UTC was 35433 -- fair signal strength with slight fading. By 18.30 UTC reception improved to 45444. However, by 19.00 UTC reception degraded to 25322 -- signal was weak and hampered by fading, yet occasionally clear with audible speech.

A reception report was emailed to Radio Kuwait International on the same day. QSL was never sent, but I did receive 2012 and 2013 calendars and programme schedules. Apparently I was added to their mailing list.
