BBC Encompass (via Ascension Island)


BBC Encompass, transmitting from Atlantic Relay Station in Georgetown, Ascension Island, was logged on 4 April 2020. English langiage broadcast of news and current event reports was monitored from 17.15 till 17.35 UTC. Reception on the frequencies of 17.780 kHz and 17.830 kHz rated a SINPO (on both frequencies) of 25222 -- weak signal strength, audible content, although not entirely discernible, and barely breaking above atmospheric noise. Reception was slightly better on 17.780 kHz. HERE is BBC Ascension.

Reception report was emailed to Encompass on 5 April 2020. I presume this is verification for the above report, as one of four BBC reception reports were sent to Encompass in 2019  and 2020. QSL card arrived in the mail on 22 June 2021.
