Next in the log on 12th November 2021, was another new station for me. It was the Voice of Mongolia broadcasting in the Japanese language on 2015 kHz.
The Voice of Mongolia is the official international broadcasting station of Mongolia.
The Voice Of Mongolia is operated by Mongolian National Broadcaster. The first broadcast in October 1964 was a half-hour transmission in Mongolian and Chinese, beamed to China. In the next few years, Mongolian international broadcasting expanded in terms of languages used, broadcast hours and target areas. The English service of Radio Ulaanbaatar, which was renamed The Voice Of Mongolia on January 1, 1997, was launched on January 29, 1965.
The Voice of Mongolia’s broadcasts are transmitted directly from Khonkhor Transmitting Station, about 25 km east of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital via 250 kW transmitters.
The overall reception of the Voice of Mongolia was good. The signal strength was good with only slight fading. There was no interference on the frequency or from adjacent stations on the band. I listened to the Japanese program and then the English language broadcast.
Below is a video showing my reception of the Voice of Mongolia.
