Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation

All Asia Service of Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation, transmitting from Colombo-Ekala, Sri Lanka, was logged on 2 October 2012. An English language broadcast of music, news and Christian programming was observed from 01.25 to  02.35 UTC on 15.745 kHz. Reception  from 01.25 to 02.00 UTC was (SINPO) 34333 -- fair signal strength, minimal station splatter, transmitter droning distorted audio slightly whenever the signal peaked upward and atmospheric noise was worse whenever the signal faded out comple. From 02.00 to 02.30 UTC  station splatter ceased, fading continued, droning and audio distortion was less apparent and insignificant to degrade overall quality. At 02.35 UTC, signal abruptly dropped off and only carrier was audible. This is odd because SLBC's signal usually is steady and improves later in their broadcast.

A reception report was submitted shortly afterwards. This eQSL arrived on 8 October 2012.
