All India Radio Jeypore in the eastern Indian state of Odisha, was logged on 22 February 2018, 17.10 till 17.40 UTC. A selection of Hindi music, presumably from Bollywood films, along with a female moderator was observed. This was followed by national news in English and Hindi, then closure of transmission. Reception on the medium-wave frequency of 1467 kHz rated a (SINPO) of 23322 -- signal strength was weak to fair depending on duration of fading, some co-frequency interference from a station in Thailand, and terrible QRN from a thunderstorm in my quarter. Otherwise signal was audible most of time with occasionally discernible speech. HERE is AIR Jeypore medium-wave transmission. This a new 100 kW transmitter.
Reception report was emailed to AIR Jeypore and Spectrum Management & Synergy on the following day. AIR Jeypore confirmed a few hours later with an email. Report was also posted to Spectrum Management & Synergy. Actual QSL card arrived on 22 June 2018. A follow-up QSL arrived on 23 June 2018.
