Adventist World Radio (via Trincomalee)

Adventist World Radio via Trincomalee, Sri Lanka was on 20 March 2019. Tamil programming was observed from 14.30 till 14.45 UTC. Reception on the medium-wave of 1548 kHz at 350 kW rated a SINPO of 54544 -- strong  signal and clear audio content with slight fading approximately every 10-12 minutes. Even then, signal remained audible. HERE is AWR (Trincomalee).

Unfortunately, it would appear AWR Asia was unaware of this transmission, as this QSL card is for a different frequency, time and transmitter power. Thanks for the card AWR, but had hoped it was for MW transmission (which must have been a test, just as the preceeding BBC broadcast had been on this same frequency and date).

Reception report was emailed on the following day. QSL card arrived on 11 April 2019. Need to follow up another reception report explaining the error.
