This broadcast originated from a 250 kW transmitter at Kranji, Singapore, and was beamed to south Asia with an antenna beam azimuth of 320°.
The recording begins with a station ID and the Greenwich Time Signal and is followed by the usual five-minute news bulletin. Queen Elizabeth II's 2016 Christmas Message to the peoples of the Commonwealth begins at about the six-minute mark in the recording. It concludes with the National Anthem (the Royal Anthem in some Commonwealth countries).
The broadcast was received by the Web-interface wideband software-defined radio at the University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands, with a "Mini-Whip" antenna in AM mode with 5.08 kHz total bandwidth RF filtering. Reception was excellent with a strong interference-free signal.
