More On Bhutan Broadcasting Service(BBS) on 6035kHz

As posted earlier, BBS is back again on shortwave on 6035kHz and continuing broadcasting thoughtout the day now-a-days.Its morning transmission beginning time is not regular as sometimes I noted back on air as early as 0100UTC and sometimes half an hour or hour later.And on September 9th i.e.today I heard good signal of BBS on 6035kHz in local Bhutanese language from 0047UTC onwards.

And on September 6th, I heard loud & clear signal of BBS English Service with news in English,public service announcements,English Songs etc from 1103UTC onwards.
On September 7th, also I heard BBS English with excellent reception overall from 1040 to 1112UTC onwards(my monitoring period).There was English Songs(sometimes back to back),Health Promos,News in English,public service announcements etc etc was on air.

Here is the link of a few moments audio recorded around 1100UTC.

The audio files were recorded while I was listening BBS on my Philips DL334  portable Analog Receiver without any external antenna.

However in the evening & night,I'm yet to hear the signal of BBS on 6035kHz.

As per informed by Alokesh Gupta from New Delhi, BBS is using only one transmitter at a time and that's why there is no parallel frequency.

That's all for today.
More monitoring infos etc soon.
