BBC Encompass (via Tinang)

BBC Encompass, transmitting from Tinang, Philippines, was logged on 1 July 2019. English broadcast featured "History Hour" which reported on the Stonewall Gay Rights Movement book by Eric Markus, followed report on Iraqi chemical attack on Kurds by Saddam Hussein's regime, promo for BBC programme "Marching to the Fast Beat", then discussion on Joseph Heller's book "Catch-22," serial murders committed by Fred and Rose West in southern England, and 1969 movement called "Association to Aid Fat People", and lastly Summary of News presented by Gloria Marshall. This was monitored from 23.15 till 00.00 UTC. Reception on 11.825 kHz rated a SINPO of 55444 -- strong signal and clear audio despite slight fading. Station splatter from adjacent frequency degraded signal at 23.59 UTC to 53443. HERE is BBC via Tinang.

Reception report was emailed to Encompass on 12 March 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.
