Yes, 2325, 2485 and 4835 ABC regionals all off air as noted here at 1015 UT
(Aug 30).


4835   INDIA. AIR - Gangtok. Believed to be this station and noted when ABC
VL8A Alice Springs NT was off the air. A very gradual fade-in from around
1130 UTC, but never got much above a scratchy weak signal. At 1214, a
pleasant female vocal with flute accompaniment. Female announcements which
could have been in the scheduled Nepali or another local language, but the
signal was just too poor to tell accurately. Discussion style program at
1235. More regional influenced music at 1253. At 1302, the signal strength
appeared to have collapsed. Not even the Yaesu FTDX3000's DNR, IF width and
shift, narrow noise blanker nor the contour control could resusitate the
signal. But then it reappeared at 1312 with more talks and discussion. Gone
again at 1317. On this occasion, the best antenna for this reception was
the 7 mHz double bazooka. Very rarely heard here and only when VL8A is
off-air. Aug 30.
