From FM Rainbows To VIvdh Bharati Plus AIR Guwahati A Relays

All India Radio(AIR) Goalpara on 102.6MHz which previously relayed AIR's FM Rainbow programs which could be heard in my home town Abhayapuri ..(aerial distance of 31.37km Approx.) on the northern bank of the Brahmaputra, , now on air with AIR's Vividh Bharati programs and also relaying AIR Guwahati A's transmission in Assamese ( on 729kHz on Medium Wave) as per monitoring for past several days from evening...The reception from late afternoon & evening has been excellent. But I'm unable to tune into AIR-Goalpara in the morning & day time and not sure whether it is off the air during that period.
