Hi every one
I have often tried listening to SLBC on the Internet website. Initially quality of the audio output was fairly good but lately anytime I try to listen either the provided link is inactive or to make matters worse whenever I am able to listen to their programs the audio is usually getting to be sub par with constant distortion in the output.
It was nice to be able to listen to many of my favorite songs from the 1950's but I hope this distortion of audio is not deliberate and possibly an attempt to discourage downloading of songs from their website. Harjinder

Harjinder ji,

SLBC acquired some new transmitters and accessories, and since Jan 1st it is reported to be quite decent. SLBC is also advertising heavily through their radio regarding internet access to their programs now.

I was having problem with their website on January 1st, 2nd and 3rd. However, some other listeners mentioned in a blog dedicated to SLBC programs, that SLBC internet access on these days was quite good and its quality has improved. I could hear it quite clearly with decent quality today (Jan 4th morning IST). I suspect that my problems on Jan 1-3 period may have been due to my local ISP issue.

Yesterday I clicked on City FM link at around 5:15 PM IST on their web page. They were playing some Hindi songs with lots of ads in between in Sinhalese. The announcer's voice seemed to be that of Jyoti Parmar for Hindi announcements. There was one Sinhalese announcer as well. Till 6 Pm IST, there was some program ".....Geetmala" where they played songs of Aradhana, Abhiman, Geet and the new craze Kolavari Di(?).

Hope you will be able to enjoy the old gems again from now onwards.

Wish you and other listeners a very happy and melodious 2012.

Regards,

Rajan

Hi Rajan CS
Thanks for the information. Around twenty years ago I used to have a decent quality shortwave radio marketed as DX300 (?) by Radio Shack. I was often able to listen to two South Asian shortwave services: All India Radio on 11620 khz and SLBC on 11800 (?) khz in the 25(?) meter band. But now in the digital age that particular shortwave radio has been lying idle in the basement of my home for the last 20 or so years. I think it is an excellent public relations move for Radio Ceylon (or SLBC Videsh Vibhag as it is called now) to revive the storied radio station and snare listeners like me back on their website. I did check my computer to see if my equipment was the problem but its audio output has been good on all other websites and on the downloaded songs I play on it. I will just for the heck of it check my shortwave radio to see how it works with new SLBC signal but I want to keep listening on the internet website for quality and reliability. Only when there is a problem like distortion of audio output I like to figure it out and correct it. Thanks again for your informative reply. Harjinder

The SLBC internet radio is up and running with some audio quality problems.They have changed the compression from 40 KBPSto 128 KBPS which should have improved the audio quality but not.Lets wait & listen.
