[HCDX] Eritrea 5100
3 Jan at 1520 noted a station with educational program in English on 5100.
At the end they announced a P.O. Box number, then a short announcement
in local language and off at 1530 after a song.
I told Mauno Ritola-FIN about this and we've been monitoring the frequency.
Next day reception was better 1500 onwards and we found out that they
announce the address Adult Education and Media, Ministry of Education,
P,O, Box 609, Asmara, Eritrea. Tel 125 546. And e-mail, that sounds
like eriaduledradio @ yahoo.com which however doesn't work.
The actual name of the station is still unclear. It sounds like Radio Bama
or Radio Bana.
We've tried to contact numerous related and unrelated e-mail addresses
in Eritrea to find out more, but nothing came back so far.
English can be heard on 5100 from around 1500 til s-off 1530 weekdays.
The transmitter seems to be on the air earlier with some programming, but
too weak to tell the language. Last Sunday (7 Jan) I think I heard them
1530-1630 but too much local noise to tell for sure.
Two other sw channels of Dimtsi Hafash (VOBME) 7100 and 7175 seem
to be carrying their regular programming at that time. So this is additional
transmitter. Possibly (I assume) the one which was used earlier to
broadcast clanny VO Sudan on around 8000.
More info about this station is much appreciated.
