VOA Deewa Radio / IBB (via Iranawila)

VOA Deewa Radio  / IBB, transmitting from Iranawila, Sri Lanka, was logged on 6 August 2013. A Pashto language broadcast about a "terrorist alert" in Pakistan and "peace violation" in Kashmir was monitored from 14.15 to 15.15 UTC (broadcast time 13.00 to 16.00 UTC). Reception on 9.310 kHz was (SINPO) 44434 -- good signal strength with some transmitter hum and flutter on the fade, otherwise good audio feed and clarity. At 14.30 UTC, there was some occasional station splatter from VOA in Tinang. Signal remained strong and clear. At 15.00 UTC, reception remained 44434 with transmitter droning and flutter still present; station splatter was no longer present.

A reception report was emailed to IBB in Iranawila the following day. This QSL card, along with colourful stamps from Sri Lanka, arrived in the mail on 21 August 2013.
