Adventist World Radio (via Nauen and Trincomalee)

Adventist World Radio, transmitting from Nauen and Trincomalee, was logged on 22 July 2016.  Hindi, Marathi and Punjabi broadcasts were monitored from 15.20 till 15.40 UTC (broadcast time for Punjabi from 15.00 till 15.30 UTC, followed by Hindi from 15.30 till 16.00 UTC and Marathi from 15.30 till 16.00 UTC).

Reception from Nauen (Hindi and Punjabi) on 15.265 kHz was (SINPO) 55555 -- outstanding reception on all accounts -- strong, clear, no interference, no fading -- perfect!

Unfortunately, reception from Trincomalee on 11.975 kHz (Marathi) was terrible with a (SINPO) rating of 23221 -- weak signal, noisy transmitter or dominant carrier, audio fading under noise. Reception worsened after 15.40 UTC and was barely audible with fading every 3 to 4 seconds.

Reception reports were emailed to AWR on the following day. QSLs and pennant arrived in the mail on 16 August 2016.
