AIR Aizawl reactivated on 5050 kHz.

INDIA. 5050, AIR Aizawl, Jan 3. Exciting news for the New Year! Today had positive reception of this station that had been off the air for several years; yesterday had a faint hint that another station might be here besides the usual Beibu Bay Radio, so monitored this frequency again today; 1120-1127 UTC, prominent test tone; went off for a minute till start of the distinctive AIR IS; 1130-1135 UTC, possibly news in Hindi(?); then at 1135 could make out, "This is All India Radio with the news read by . ."; items not very readable due to BBR QRM; 1140, "and that was the end of the news bulletin." Wonderful to have this station active again!
