RTM - TRAXX FM (Malaysia)

RTM TRAXX FM, transmitting from Kajang, Malaysia, was logged on 7 September 2013 (8 September 2013 in Malaysia). An English language programmed called Stylus was hosted by DJ/Producer Albert Ng.  From 22.00 to 23.00 UTC (07.00 to 08.00 AM local time) I monitored a wonderfully nostalgic selection of music from the 40's, 50's and 60's. Hence the name of the show "Stylus"are fears to a time when phonograph records required a stylus...and had STYLE!  It's a three hour programme (21.00 to 00.00 UTC) heard each Sunday, and it is entertainment well worth the listening. Reception on 7.295 kHz at 22.00 UTC was (SINPO) 34443 -- fair signal strength with minor interference. Between 22.30 to 23.00 UTC reception gradually improved to 55555.

Reception report was emailed the following day to RTM. Hopefully their new TRAXX FM QSL will be received. RTM replied with an email on 14 September 2013 promising to post a QSL card.  This QSL arrived in the mail on 3 October 2013.
