All India Radio Aizawl, transmitting from the eastern Indian state of Mizoram, was logged on 14 March 2015. A Hindi language broadcast of uninterrupted music was monitored from 16.05 till 16.30 UTC (broadcast time 11.30 till 16.30 UTC). Reception on 5.050 kHz was (SINPO) 25441 -- weak carrier signal with barely audible content was best received in LSB mode; however, before 16.00 UTC, Beibu Bay Broadcasting (BBB) in Nanning dominated the frequency. Only when BBB signed-off could AIR Aizawl be heard.
Reception report was emailed to Spectrum Management and All India Radio Aizawl on the same day. I am extremely doubtful a QSL will be forthcoming, owing to the difficulty in obtaining a verification from AIR. Still, it's terrific to catch this station on air, however poor the reception.
