Radio Republik Indonesia Banda Aceh

Radio Republik Indonesia Banda Aceh (Pro 1), on the island of Sumatra, was received on 31 March 2016, here on the Kuala Lumpur area. Islamic programming was observed  from 12.15 till 17.00 UTC (07.15 pm till midnight, Indonesian time). Fortunately I was able to identify maghrib evening prayers, a nasheed entitled "Astaghfirullah", an Islamic programme that began with Surah Al-Fatiha, then later in the evening a woman reciting the Quran, just before the national anthem and sign-off at 17.00 UTC. Reception on the medium wave frequency of 1251 kHz was weak to fair when not fading and without interference from Thai station, earn an overall of SINPO 33433.

On 5 April 2016, a reception report in bahasa Indonesia was submitted online to RRI Banda Aceh and RRI/VOI website. While hesitant to send this reception report, owing to past failure to obtain QSLs from RRI, I thought I would try my luck anyway. RRI/VOI sent a computer-generated message immediately, stating they would look into the matter.
