INDEPENDENCE DAY DXING (15th August 2013)

As India today celebrated 67th Independence day and its a national holiday today, so I got the opportunity to spend some time with my radios and log these stations today at my QTH located in Jorhat in the Assam state of India. Geographical location Latitude: 26° 45' 0 N, Longitude: 94° 13' 0 E, receivers used JRC NRD-91 and Sangean ATS-909 and antenna used 20 mt. long multidirectional antenna and Kestral W31MS active loop antenna.  

Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation transmitting from Trincomalee in Hindi received on 11905 kHz around 0205 UTC with great signal today. Here is a video:- 



Bangladesh Betar Home Service transmitting from Shavar in Bengali received on 4750 kHz around 0145 UTC with clear reception. Watch the video:
