Radio Republik Indonesia Singaraja (via Bali)

Radio Republik Indonesia Singaraja (PRO-1) in Buleleng, Bali, was logged from 22.05 till 22.30 UTC, on 29 May 2018. A mix of Balinese and Indonesian programming, i.e. Indo pop music, DJ discussing programme summary, followed by mantra "Om shanti shanti shanti Om" with Balinese music, then station ID "RRI Singaraja", was observed.  HERE's RRI Singaraja.

SINPO on 1080 kHz (MW) rated 34433 - strong signal, clear audio when not fading every few minutes under atmospheric noise, Subsequent days reception was a bit weaker at 24332 with fading, household electrical noise and  static bursts from a local thunderstorm. Interestingly, RRI Singaraja is received in Kuala Lumpur too, but usually with co-frequency interference from a station in Thailand. And, signal is best received in the morning, both in Singapore and Malaysia. Early evening RRI Singaraja is heard, but Interference from CRI is a problem in later at night.

Reception report was emailed on 1 June 2018, then followed up a few days later to additional email contacts and mailed to RRI Singaraja. On 4 June 2018, I received the following email confirming reception: "Thank you monitoring and giving the report to us, M Breyel. The recording was indeed broadcast from PRO 1 RRI Singaraja, although somewhat less good to be heard. I am very glad to hear this report about our broadcast to Malaysia. Let me introduce myself to you. I am Kasaan, Music Director, RRI Singaraja. Warm greetings from me. This report I will submit to my boss later. Kasah, Music Director's Pro 2 RRI Singaraja." Now hopefully a verification from the station itself will follow.
