A Few Monitoring Updates On All India Radio Stations On Shortwave

Here is a few of my latest radio monitoring observations on All India Radio Regional Stations on shortwave.

Geographical Location of Reception Place(Abhayapuri):
Receiver:Grundig YB 400 (Digital Read OUT)
Antenna:Long Copper  Wire(30 ft plus length)..height 20ft Plus  as External  Antenna
Co-axial Lead In
(for all cases)

First Our Own All India Radio(AIR) Regional Stations On Shortwave In My Region (NE India)...::
AIR-Aizawl is off the air for several weeks..It was received with  the strongest signal here  amongst all the NE Region Regional AIR Stations on shortwave in recent time..specially in the morning.
But ...strange observation..on May 28th sunday..around 1530utc..on 5050kHz..
I heard fair signal of a radio station broadcasting AIR Evening News In English.I think AIR-Aizawl might have tested their transmitter..by relaying evening news from Delhi..But On May 29th..in the morning no trace of signal of AIR-Aizawl could be heard.And on May 29th evening around 1522utc approx. I again heard AIR Evening News in Hindi on 5050kHz.And I didn't heard any morning transmission of AIR-Aizawl on 5050kHz as far as my latest morning on May 31st.

And AIR-Kuresong is not air for several days on 4895kHz as per my observations.
Now AIR-Gangtok on 4835kHz has been received with the strongest signal in the morning amongst the All India Radio...In the evening also the reception quality of AIR-Gangtok has improved siginificantly.
And the audio quality level has improved to a great extent of AIR-Shillong on 4970kHz both in the morning & evening.

AIR-Chennai at the evening on 4920kHz has been received here  without co-channel interference from Chinese Regional Station for several days.

More monitoring observations/updates etc soon.
