Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation

Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation, transmitting from Colombo-Ekala, was received from 09.30 to 10.00 UTC on  6.005 kHz, on 23 November 2012. A variety of South Asian songs were heard between maile and female announcers. Reception (SINPO) at 09.30 UTC was 23322 -- faint audio, jamming and fading. At 09.50 UTC reception improved slightly to 33322 -- stronger and clearer audio, but still jamming and fading. By 10.00 UTC, jammer gradually overpowered SLBC. This frequency and time is probably the worst reception for any SLBC transmission. It competes with the jammer, presumably originating from North Korea. On most days, SLBC on 6.005 kHz cannot be hear due to the jammer.

Reception report was submitted the following day. An eQSL was promised a day after submission of this report. This eQSL was received on 26 November 2012.
