Listen Test Transmission of TVM-Mirchi Big-FM S-FM

Three FM Radio Channels started test transmission today at Thiruvananthapuram as mentioned in one of the comment of a previous post. I have uploaded samples for those who are out of range.. Also Mathrubhumi Club FM TVM is on air.

Listen to Radio Mirchi Trivandrum 98.3 MHz Test Transmission .
Download Mirchi

Hear online BigFM Tvm 92.7 MHz .
File Type: mp3
Download Big-FM TVM

Also listen online the Test Transmission of Sun TV S-FM TVM MHz mp3.
Download S-FM TVM

I liked Radio Mirchi. We can't compare during test transmission though... "Sangathi hot aanu" is the punch-line instead of "It's hot".
RJ Anjana sounds similar to Meera Jasmine.

Don't forget to listen to Ananthapuri FM.

(Club FM is transmitting no audio signal as of now.).
CLUB FM Started Test Transmission too. Club FM TVM is on air officially with ads (29th tue). @cochin within weeks.

There were comments in my previous post about FM radio that test transmission of Big fm tvm and mirchi tvm was heard clearly at Kochi with antenna. (due to power/directionality?)

I think the official launch might happen on Feb 14 or so since its valentine's day on Feb 14th :D
Cordless phone and Big FM 92.7 is operating at same frequency :D

Heard during Infosys Q3 Results

Udyan Mukherjee: Do you think banks have been offering these kind of products, have you been offered to indulge or play in theses kinds of exotic products(a midcap technology company, Hexaware actually had a big loss because of some exotic products that they were doing on Forex)?

Balkrishnan(CFO of Infosys): Yes, that is the job of the bank, they will try to sell all the products, we have to understand the risks and do some of the products and the ability to understand the risk is very important. The banks will come and sell all the products, which they have in their portfolio; you have to pick and choose what is good for you and do it.

And what is the job of Infosys?
Selling products to bank. ;)
