Bangladesh Betar, 15505kHz, 1408-1430Z 3/10
« on: March 09, 2013, 2048 UTC »
Finally, finally heard this one!  I've been trying for months, mainly earlier in the mornings due to work during the week, and today boom!  I wasn't even making the attempt; I was working my way upward with intent to try for Spaceshuttle Radio!  Here's my log, as I wrote it down later.  You better believe I'll be QSLing this one!  Anybody got a usable address if a girl wanted to send a snailmail letter? 

15505, Bangladesh Betar, 1408-1430.  Programming consisted of subcontinental music moderated by a male presenter.  Presumed news in Urdu at the beginning, lasting for several minutes, and more brief comments later on.  One definite mention of Bangladesh.  Off at 1430.  Signal fair, subject to transmitter hum.  Music slightly louder than spoken audio.  SINPO 33333.

Tecsun PL-660, Yaesu FT60R handheld, and Realistic DX-398 (back up and running!) 
QSL's appreciated 

There's a geeklady turning that dial!
