Voice of Turkey

Voice of Turkey, transmitting from Emirler, was logged on 8 March 2015. An English language broadcast, featuring a Special Woman's Day programme, Foods of the Court, Today in History, Eco-friendly Tips, Question of the Month and Turkish pop music was monitored  from 23.00 till 23.30 UTC (broadcast time 23.00 till 23.55 UTC).

Reception at this time on 5.960 kHz was less than favorable, and certainly not targeted to Southeast Asia. Nevertheless SINPO was 13321 -- weak to poor signal, yet audible despite interference from PBS Xinjiang and fading. As grey-line disappeared between Turkey and Malaysia, reception worsened and PBS Xinjiang pretty much dominated the frequency; Voice of Turkey by 23.20 UTC was only faintly and occasionally audible, then completely overshadowed after 23.30 UTC.

Reception report was emailed on 9 March 2015.
