NHK World-Radio Japan (via Tashkent)

NHK World-Radio Japan "India Special" via Tashkent, Uzbekistan was heard on 7 December 2018. This special broadcast "Salam Namaste" was monitored from 03.30 till 04.00 UTC. Reception on the short-wave frequency of 13.780 kHz rated a SINPO of 45444 -- good signal, clear audio despite slight atmospheric noise and fading. HERE is NHK World-Radio Japan "India Special".

Reception report for this combined Hindi, Bengali and Urdu broadcast was emailed and submitted online on the following day. QSL card, along woth a picture post card and sticky notes, arrived in the mail on 30 January 2019. My understanding is this special verification card is a reprint of a QSL card from 1957-58 when the Indian service of Radio Japan commenced, and a lovely card it is!
