Indonesia and Myanmar - Feb 16 with outstanding propagation!
« on: February 16, 2024, 2223 UTC »

INDONESIA. 3325, Voice of Indonesia (Channel One) from Palangkaraya, on Feb 16. Extremely rare day with readable audio.
Reception was before my local sunrise (1454 UT). I confess I still very much miss the former local Pro 1 RRI Palangkaraya
programming that was heard here before VOI replaced it back in June, 2018. Some highlights from today:

1305-1315: News in English, along with "International News" about Japan's economy declining into recession.

1315-1318: The usual post-news patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri.”

1318-1321: "Today in History" (this date 1946, the first UN Security Council veto was made by the Soviet Union and in 1971, UN
voted on the One-China policy; this date 1983, major bushfires in Australia; this date 2005, Kyoto climate treaty took effect).

1331: "Indonesian Wonders"; 1344: "Music Corner."

1401-1415: News in Bahasa Indonesia; 1415-1418: The usual post-news patriotic song “Bagimu Negeri.”

My audio of 1415 “Bagimu Negeri” and announcer mentioning "Jakarta EXPO" -

MYANMAR. 5985, Myanmar Radio, 1518+ UT, Feb 16 (Friday). Today with no signal from Turkey (VOT); this is the second,
consecutive Friday that Myanmar has had no English (1530+); audio quality seemed to indicate coverage from some event;
also played music, till tuned-out at 1540. Is this their usual schedule now with no English on Friday? My local sunrise was
at 1454 UT.
