Bhutan BBS and AIR Gangtok update

Bhutan - 5030 and 6035.05, BBS email:

Dear Ron Howard,
Thanking you for your reception report. After verifying the frequency with Short wave coordination conference which is conducting in Kualalampure, Malaysia, we may use or look for good free frequency and will do our second channel broadcasting. Are you coming to KL Malaysia to attain 8th global shortwave coordination conference?

With warm regards,

Thinley Dorji

All India Radio
Sikkim: 4834.0, AIR Gangtok, 1502-1515, Dec. 26. Ex: 4835.0; First day I noticed them on this lower frequency; playing subcontinent music till 1512 joining the audio feed from New Delhi and becoming // (parallel) with the other usual AIR regional stations with ads in Hindi after the tone/gong. Signal poor. Time will tell if they continue on this new frequency. Perhaps someone with a Perseus SDR can provide a more accurate frequency?
