A Radio Update Related to Nepal

I'm  Safe here in Abhayapuri,Assam,India...!!!
The earthquake that struck Nepal also felt greatly here around 11.41AM Local Time(0611UTC) on April 25th & then two after shocks also felt by me around 12.19PM(0639UTC) on April 25th itself....later on April 26th around 12.42PM(0712UTC) also...

Radio Update...BBC Nepali
I heard perhaps special shortwave transmission of BBC Nepali due to the earthquake in Nepal on 11995 & 15510kHz(my monitored frequencies) from 0130UTC onwards on April 27th after BBC Hindi transmission in the morning (0100-0130UTC) .I montiored for a few minutes.
Here is the link to the  audio recorded around 0134utc on 11995kHz...

Radio Nepal on Medium Wave on Air:
And I heard on April 27th evening Radio Nepal on mediumwave from 1358UTC onwards on 684kHz(via Pokhara?) broadcasting earthquake related updates & announcements plus talks with admistrative officials of various districts about damage,deaths & search & rescue & relief operations etc etc.The reception was good to fair with occasional fading (slight interference sometime from Bangladesh Betar broadcasting on 693kHz from time to time)via my Philips DL334 portable receiver on battery.There was another frequency which the same transmission was on air i.e. on 648kHz(via Dhankuta ?) but the reception was poor.

Here is the links to the audio files I recorded of Radio Nepal on 684kHz.
First audio recorded at 1546UTC..
And  at 1549UTC.

More updates etc soon.
