New SW channel for Radio TV Malaysia

A new frequency, 9835, is now in use for the Domestic Service of Radio TV
Malaysia.

Thde transmitter is at Kajang, with 100 kW, intended target area 54NE, and
authorized to operate from 0000 to 1600.

It provided excellent signals on Tuesday December 4, 2010, in the
mid-afternoon between 0400 and 0500, carrying RTVM programming in Malay,
originating from the Musik-FM Network.

Propagation was via the Asian Daytime Summer Mode.

My reception was at the Maroondah Reservoir Park, Healesville, 80 km sast of
Melbourne, using the Eton E5 and 3 m of antenna.

Other SW relays of RTVM's domestic services include:

5965 Malay (Klasik Nasional FM)
7295 English (Traxx FM) (also audible at Healesville 0445-0500)

Another allocated frequency is 11665, as an alternative to 9835.

It's posssible that this transmission is only on the air during local
daytime hours in Malaysia.

I haven't seen 9835 reported in any of the SW monitoring newsgroups!

Reception observations would be welcomed!

Regards from Melbourne!
