RTM Wai FM (Kajang, Malaysia)

Wai FM, transmitting from Radio Televisyen Malaysia shortwave site in Kajang (Selangor), was logged  on 27 December 2018 (28 December 2018, Malaysia date), from 23.00 till 23.30 UTC (07.00AM till 07.30AM, Malaysia Time). Phone-in discussion with listeners moderated by female DJ, Malay pop music, promotional spots, current events and medical advice from a doctor interviewed in the studio was observed within this 30 minute period. Reception on 11.665 kHz rated a SINPO of 54454 -- excellent signal strength, before 23.00 UTC slight QRM from China station, slight atmospheric noise, otherwise clear audio during transmission monitored. HERE is a recording of Wai FM

Reception report was emailed on the following day. Multiple follow-up reports to various RTM personnel were emailed as well over the course of the next few weeks. Finally, on 9 January 2019, a scanned copy of a promised QSL card  was emailed. I await the paper version. The QSL card did indeed arrive in the mail the following week.
