VOA Radio Ashna - IBB (via Kuwait)

VOA Radio Ashna - IBB, transmitting from Kuwait, was logged on 25 August 2012. A Dari language broadcast of news and feature programmes were observed from 19.30 to  20.30 UTC on 7.555 kHz. Reception (SINPO) was 34333 -- fair signal strength with some  interference initially from  AIR Bangalore on 7.550 kHz. This ceased to be a problem after 19.45 UTC, otherwise signal strength remained fair with slight fading.

Reception report was subsequently emailed to VOA. On 30 August 2012, VOA Public Relations sent the following email: "Thank you for your email and reception report on Radio Ashna. It’s always nice to hear from our audiences around the world. I have shared your message with our Audience Mail Department, they will send you a QSL card in the mail soon. Thank you again for your interest in VOA programs." The promised QSL card arrived with a 2013 VOA calendar on 8 February 2013.
