MONITORING OBSERVATION- AIR MAHALAYA TRANSMISSION 2013


"Mahisasuramardini"  is a widely popular early radio programme that has been broadcast since 1932 on All India Radio (AIR.) It is a one and half-hour audio montage of Chandipath (chanting from Chandi) recitation by Late Birendra Krishna Bhadra from the scriptural verses of Sri Sri Chandi, wonderful Bengali devotional songs, classical music and a dash of acoustic melodrama. The program has also been translated into Hindi set to similar orchestration and is broadcast at the same time for a pan-Indian audience. This programme, which began in 1932, is aired every year at day-break on Mahalaya on different regional Shortwave and Medium Wave station of All India Radio or Akashvani.  The programme, which started off as a live-performance has been broadcast in its pre-recorded format since the late nineteen-sixties. However, its great popularity remains undiminished even till today and now it is being aired by AIR's FM networks as well as by many private FM channels in India, specially in Eastern India. 

Here are my monitoring observation for this year's Mahalaya special early morning program "Mahisashuramardini" transmitted by AIR regional SW and MW stations between 2225 to 0015 UTC (my monitoring time between 2225 to 2330 UTC) of 3rd October and 4th October (IST 0355 AM onwards of 4th October). My QTH geographical location Latitude: 26° 45' 0 N, Longitude: 94° 13' 0, Jorhat in Assam and I have used my JRC NRD-91 receiver and a 20 mt. long wire external antenna for these observation.

 and 

AIR Jaipur- 4910 kHz- Fair reception. While AIR Kolkata (4820 kHz) was overtaken by CNR and AIR Guwahati (4920 kHz) was missing on SW.

India's 67th I-Day Celebration- Some AIR Monitoring Observation


Today India is celebrating 67th Independence Day and on this auspicious occasion All India Radio and all its regional stations on shortwave, medium wave and FM has broadcast live coverage of Flag Hosting and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's address to the nation from Red Fort, New Delhi. Here are some monitoring observation of AIR stations on SW and MW from my QTH at Jorhat in the North Eastern state of Assam. 

AIR Kohima, which was off air for past several weeks, monitored active during I-Day celebration. After yesterday's coverage of President's message to the nation between 1330-1400 UTC, today AIR Kohima was received with strong signal and clear audio on 4850 kHz from my monitoring time 0130 UTC. AIR Kohima also heard on MW 639 kHz, with not so strong reception though.  Here are two videos. 




AIR Aizawl, again a North East Indian station, was also active with live I-Day coverage on 5050 kHz at 0145 UTC. 



AIR Shillong, on 4971 kHz (instead on actual 4970 kHz) was inactive yesterday during President's message coverage. But today this station was also heard with good signal at 0140 UTC on 4971 kHz with running commentary from Red Fort. 



AIR Itanagar, though off air on SW 4990 kHz, but today heard them on MW 675 kHz with I-Day coverage. Here is a video. 


Another AIR regional station from NE India, like AIR Guwahati was heard on 7420 kHz but nothing was on 4940 kHz which has been reported off air for some time now. AIR Imphal (on 7335 kHz and 4775 kHz) is still off air and nothing heard on occasion of Independence day. AIR Gangtok from Sikkim was heard on 4835 kHz but the reception was not that satisfactory here in my QTH. Here is a quick reception summary of other AIR stations I have monitored this morning during I-Day celebration coverage from Red Fort.

7225 kHz- ?- SINPO- 33333

My Recent Monitoring of AIR Stations from NE India

In past few days I have read many monitoring observation posts from Ron Howard from California, USA and Gautam Kumar Sharma of Abhayapuri, Assam regarding AIR Shillong, AIR Aizawl and other AIR regional stations who are currently broadcasting on shortwave. These postings in yahoo DX lists increased my curiosity for these station's recent status and during past few days I have been regularly monitoring these stations. As far as  AIR Shillong and AIR Aizawl is concerned, I have monitored these two station in past few days and yes, found that AIR Shillong is now can be better heard on 4971 kHz rather than 4970 kHz. Please find below two links for AIR Shillong video as received here in my QTH at Jorhat in Assam, in the morning hours. 



And AIR Aizawl, although not very strong, but can be heard now in morning as well as evening hours on 5050 kHz. During evening hours though I observed some interference from CNR. Here are two videos. 





I have also tried other AIR stations in NE, viz AIR Imphal on 4775 kHz, AIR Gangtok on 4835 kHz, AIR Kohima on 4850 kHz, AIR Kurseong on 4895 kHz, AIR Guwahati on 4940 kHz and AIR Itanagar on 4990 kHz on 9th August morning between 0300-0400 UTC, but could not heard any of them except AIR Kurseong on 4895 kHz. This prove that other AIR stations are off the air these days as already informed by Ron Howard and Gautam Sharma. Here is a video of this AIR station search. 


For all these observations I have used JRC NRD-91 receiver and a 20 mt. long dipole antenna. Hope these will be useful information for all of you as AIR will be broadcasting LIVE commentary of  India's 67th Independence Day celebration from Red Fort, New Delhi on 15th August and these AIR stations are suppose to relay this program on their respective frequencies between 0135-0240 UTC. Please monitor and if received any you can send your Reception Reports to : spectrum-manager@air.org.in

Visit to Radio Brahmaputra- a Community Radio Station with Many Dreams

Writer at BCRS
13 February, UNESCO encourages all countries to celebrate this day as World Radio Day — a day to celebrate radio as a medium; to improve international cooperation between broadcasters; and to encourage major networks and community radio alike to promote access to information and freedom of expression over the airwaves. As a radio hobbyist I marked this special day by visiting and spending few moments with few enthusiastic and dedicated community radio workers at the Radio Brahmaputra- the first non-commercial radio station in North-Eastern Region, set up in 2010 near the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra in Dibrugarh district of upper Assam.

As radio continues to evolve in the digital age, it remains the medium that reaches the widest audience worldwide. This multi-purpose medium can help people, including youth, to engage in discussions on topics that affect them. It can save lives during natural or human-made disasters; and it provides journalists with a platform to report facts and tell their stories. With such and many more dreams and aim a community radio station under the banner of Brahmaputra Community Radio Station (BCRS) was set up in 2010 by the Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research (C-NES) in collaboration with UNICEF. Radio Brahmaputra was scheduled to start broadcasting in 2012, but till today they are awaiting a formal frequency allotment by the government. But they are now well prepared to broadcast in five different languages and dialects with the direct involvement of local communities. These languages are Assamese, Chadri (tea garden dialect), Bodo, Mishing and Bhojpuri (dialect of migrant community from Bihar & Uttar Pradesh). Radio Brahmaputra is dedicated to serve the people within coverage of 10-15 KM radius to disseminate information on social, 
cultural and political issues as well as foster local cultures and talents. Presently a team of 19 dedicated youths are involved in this project with huge prospects of quality radio broadcasts and most of them are recruited from these five communities living in station's target area and a network of 150 volunteers spread across islands, tea gardens and urban areas are also associated with this station. Presently they are producing programs on health issues, agricultural topics, community based programs on education issues, radio chat shows, music, information based programmes, radio drama, interviews, quiz show among school children, special programmes for women and older people, covering cultural events, folk music and public service
announcements and presently "narrow casting" among target audience in their coverage area, gathering programme feedback from the community listeners and helping them to consider it as their own media and to speak on their own issues. It is gaining acceptance not only as a media but as choupal to all, getting communities together to exchange their views, improve mutual understanding and respect.

BCRS Program Coordinator Bhaskar Jyoti Bhuyan expressed his concern on the delay in spectrum allotment (frequency allocation) to Radio Brahmaputra, but he and his entire team is hopeful that once they get the formal licence and as soon as their reach become more direct and large to their target audience they are keeping many dreams alive to serve the local community towards a new dawn of knowledge and entertainment. Radio Brahmaputra already has a website and they have Podcasts of some of their program on experimental basis, and they hope that soon they will provide the radio world with the best radio programs from the banks of Brahmaputra.
