Recent SLBC Changes

Received a mail from :

SLBC are gearing themselves to come out strongly from Saturday 1st June ’13 by upgrading their transmission output by 1,250% on the 31m band’s 9770khz signal from a previous mere 10kwts output to 125kwts output as they transfer their Short Wave relay operation from historic Ekala on the west coastline to Nilaveli in Trincomalee on the Eastern coastline.

SLBC are dropping out on the previous 49m (6005khz) ; 19m (15745khz) bands on the English All Asia Service ; would continue operating only a single but previously very popular band of 31m band on the 9770khz frequency in the future.

The only hitch’s that the English All Asia Service would be operating from 0215 – 0330hrs daily.

Many Short Wave specialists believe that this enhanced output would be sufficient to cover entire Indian geography?

Here’s the revised frequencies & broadcast times….

1.    0115-0213 UTC Hindi AAS on 11905khz on the 25m band. (2 minutes at end to quickly retune transmitter to 31m band)

2. 0215-0330 UTC English AAS on 9770khz on the 31m band.

3.    1115-1215 UTC South Indian dialects on 9770khz on the 31m band.

Request knowing the reception status in each of your locations, preferably by return Email.
