9870kHz 500kW  Bengaluru  1245-1740UT  (Vividh Bharati)  DRM tests

I don't believe proper Bangalore site, as listed already, no DRM mode heard sofar, but instead one of the rather Panaji faulty transmitters in AM mode on air, on exact 9869.982 kHz at 1640 UT Jan 21. Also, AIR Hindi transmission heard on 7249.980 kHz from faulty unit at Goa Panaji site. Very unstable and oscillating audio transmissions. 

Both transmission 7250v and 9870v hopp up/down few Hertz too.
