Radio Thailand

Like most radio listeners around the world I tuned in to radio broadcasts coming out of Thailand shortly after the military coup. On the eve of the take-over all MW stations -- which are numerous -- I observed synchronised patriotic music and talk on every station. The following evening I caught Radio Thailand on short-wave with their familiar format of news and tourism related promos.

Transmitting from the IBB relay site in Udon Thani, I logged the station on 23 May 2014, broadcasting to Europe from 19.00 to 20.00 UTC. Reception on 9.390 kHz was (SINPO) 55555 - Excellent.

HERE's an audio file of the news read at the top of the hour.

Reception report was emailed early the following week to both Radio Thailand and IBB Udon Thani. An email from Radio Thailand was received on 26 May 2014, confirming reception report would be sent by IBB. QSL card from IBB for Radio Thailand arrived in the mail on 4 June 2014. Finally, a QSL card from Radio Thailand World Service (HSK9) arrived by registered mail on 4 September 2014.
