Tajik Radio

Tajik Radio in Dushanbe was logged on 1 February 2014. Central Asian music in Tajik was monitored from 17.50 to 18.20 UTC.  Reception on 4.765 kHz at 17.50 UTC was (SINPO) 24332 -- weak with fading and atmospheric noise, but audible music and announcers. Reception was significantly degraded by 18.20 UTC to 24221 -- barely audible with increased noise and fading. Any hope of catchin Tajik Radio before 17.00 UTC is impossible in Malaysia due to station splatter from All India Radio in Port Blair. 

I hesitate sending a reception report to Tajik Radio inasmuch as previous reports, both by email and post, went without a response. Tajikistan relays transmissions for RFE and similar broadcasters, and one can certainly QSL these stations from Dushanbe, but to get a QSL from Tajik Radio would be the pièce de résistance.
