Adventist World Radio via Spaceline (Kostinbrod) was received on 10 April 2018, from 15.59 till 16.30 UTC. An English language broadcast, intended primarily for South Asia, contained a number of contemporary Christian themed songs, religious sermons and nature study about the religious symbolism of the poinsettia. Reception on the short-wave frequency of 11.950 kHz was heard under good conditions, rating a SINPO of 54544 -- strong signal, clear audio despite an occasional fluttering fade. HERE is an excerpt of this AWR broadcast from Malaysia; apparently the transmission didn't fare quite as well in South Asia.
End Times Coming Radio (ETC) via Spaceline (Kostinbrod) was received on 9 April 2018, from 18.00 till 18.30 UTC. An ETC religious programme for ex-Catholics, featuring a sermon on the family conflict of the Biblical Issac and Ismael, was observed on the short-wave frequency of 9.400 kHz. Reception rated a SINP0 of 45444 -- good signal strength, no noticeable interference, clear audio content throughout the broadcast. I might add that other programming from Spaceline on 9.400 kHz radiates quite well into Malaysia from 16.00 till 19.00 UTC, depending on propagation. For instance, Isle of Music was logged a few days ago but only a faint carrier was detected. Be that as it may, HERE is how ETC via Spaceline in this transmission.

Reception on short-wave frequency of 7.325 kHz rated a SINPO of 45444 -- good signal strength, no noticeable interference, clear audio content throughout the broadcast despite atmospheric noise.
