India - Republic Day parade coverage
« on: January 26, 2024, 0705 UTC »
>  Please note special transmission of Akashvani with running commentary of Republic Day parade held at New Delhi
> from  0410 UTC / 9.40 am IST, on 26 Jan 2024 on 9950 (Hindi), 11560 (Hindi) via New Delhi 100 kW, and English 15280
> via Bengaluru Gupta 500 kW. (Jose Jacob & Alokesh Gupta)

YouTube live coverage - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xi5_OOPM-I (partly in both English and Hindi).

Jan 26 - Tuned to 15280 kHz. (9950 & 11560 not heard). At times sounded like possibly some CNR1 jamming QRM?

0350-0400 UT: Subcontinent music/singing.

0400: AIR IS (or should I now say Akashvani IS?) and today also with the patriotic song "Vande Mataram" (YouTube -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfqMmypbACg ), both of which I had not heard for a very long time on SW!

0404: Filler EZL songs.

0410+: OM and YL with what seemed to be pre-parade commentary; by 0420, was able to confirm it was in English,
but sadly mostly unusable/unreadable. Never made out the ID.
