A broadcast of news on the hour, lively discussion and jazzy music was heard between 08.00 to 09.05 UTC (broadcast time 08.00 to 10.00 UTC). Reception on 12.015 kHz  at 08.00 UTC was (SINPO) 34343 -- fair signal strength with audible and discernible speech, despite some transmitter hum and atmospheric noise.
