BBC - Eastern Relay Station (via al Seela)

BBC, transmitting from Eastern Relay Station in al Seela, Oman, was received on 5 September 2019. An Arabic language broadcast of news and commentary on current events was observed  between 18.45 till 19.00 UTC. Reception on 1413 kHz (MW) rated a SINPO of 35433 -- fair signal strength, clear audio content, brief fading under atmospheric noise every few minutes. Generally reception is heard nightly after 17.00 UTC under good conditions, and I has been many a times from this transmitter site and frequency over the years. HERE is BBC al Seela (MW).

Reception report was emailed to Encompass on 16 September 2019. I presume this is verification for the above report, as one of four BBC reception reports were sent to BBC Encompass in 2019 and 2020. QSL card arrived in the mail on 14 June 2021.
