  1. Hi Alokesh!

    This one is a very informative post, like always.

    One thing I would like to know is, whether the transmission a regular analogue one or not? If so, how is that text "OMAN ENG" seen? Is it automatically coming as soon as you tune it correctly, or you had to set it manually?

    Another thing I would like to know, the distance for Radio Mango is showing 2000 Km, more than Radio Oman! Where is that station being broadcast from? Seems like catching Radio Mango was more sproadic than catching Radio Oman. What do you think ?
