Dear experts on Indian broadcasting,
last year, I followed the extended new year’s eve programme on AIR Jeypore on 5040 kHz not knowing that this was their final day on short wave.
As I start preparing the December news columns of Radiokurier/weltweit hoeren, the last remaining big magazine on international radio listening in Germany/Austria, I wonder whether I might suggest some Indian medium wave frequencies for some new year’s eve listening. Suratgarh 918 kHz would be an example coming to my mind, because it is occasionally reported by my readers in Germany/Austria. I know that Indian AM stations at times extend their schedule beyond their usual close down to cover sports events or religious festivals. But I do not know whether they extend their broadcasting day to reach the new year.
Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Most AIR stations have extended broadcasts every year to usher in the new year.. Midnight in India is 1830 UTC. The stations will be there till a few minutes past midnight on that day, varies from station to station. List of MW stations in India in frequency order is in https://qsl.net/vu2jos/mw/freq.htm
