Mahesh Chandro Roy, Senior Engineer of Bangladesh Betar wrote:
This is very interesting that you were able to receive our radio program on 693KHz. Actually, we are using this frequency for our local/home broadcasting. You were able to receive this frequency due to some unusual characteristics of radio wave and special conditions of environmental parameters. As you are interested, you can try to receive our program on 7185KHz in English from 12:00 to 13:00 UTC.
We are sending you few cards representing Bangladesh Betar and Bangladesh.
Again, many thanks and waiting to listen from you.
