Malaysdia - update

As I had foreshadowed a few weeks ago, RTVM has now introduced a second SW
frequency from Kajang, 11665, carrying regular programming from Kuching via
satellite feeds.

Appears to be 24-hrs, and audible here strongly in Melbourne in window 1900
to 2100,
good signals, when parallel with 9835, taking the State Network "Sarawak FM"
all-night service at that time.

Official ITU registration shows 100 kW, 93 degrees, CIRAF target zone 54NE,
authorized 0000-1600.

I believe that the new channel is primarily intended for relaying the
Sarawak State
network "Wai FM" from Kuching, which is non-24hrs, operating in the period
2200-1600, mainly Dialects programming.

11665 is also used by NHK (Yamata) 2200-0100 broadcasting to same target

Adjacent 11660 is occupied by Radio Australia Shepparton 2000-2200.
