BBC World Service temporarily broadcasting via RNW Madagascar relay

Serious flooding in Thailand has forced the BBC's relay station at Nakhon Sawan off the air. It's expected that the station will be silent until next Tuesday at the earliest. VT Communications has arranged temporary broadcasts from other sites. Until Nakhon Sawan is back in normal operation, the RNW Madagascar relay station is broadcasting BBC World Service programming towards India as follows:

  • English 0100-0200 UTC on 11955 kHz 250kW beam 050 degrees
  • Hindi  0230-0300 UTC on 15405 kHz 250 kW beam 050 degrees
  • English 0300-0500 UTC on 17790kHz 250kW beam 050 degrees
