Listening to many hours of programming in languages I understand at least
partly, I realise how much of the content is centrally prepared. I note a
dominant word in all languages: "terrorist" (PKK, PYD, Guelen movement,
IS). And I note as inconsistent compositions of quotations from
international press reports into a commentary programme as in the German

Turkey - During my ongoing research of their web stream


I note that the designer of the web site of Voice of Turkey did not
envisage pages for frequency and programme schedules in the different

I know that a number of the services available via


are not broadcast on short wave; nonetheless interested listeners of those
on short wave should ask for current frequency information to be included.
It would also be in the general interest of the specific language services
to have all platforms (incl. FM affiliates) mentioned that they are on.

The German Service does give frequency and programme schedules for their
short wave transmissions. So, I did not note this deficiency of the design
of the web site before. I just came across this problem when finding
German on internet streams and not finding any references on the German

Listeners of the English service should also note that the link at


directly leads to the TV service


This leads me to ask whether there is still any English audio content to
be found on the web site of the Voice of Turkey.

VOT uses this frequency solely for their 2200 to 2300UTC broadcast in
English to Eastern North America,.

Well, at least 3 times in the last 2 weeks, I've heard the broadcast
continue after 2300UTC.

The interval tune without speech will play out after the English language
transmission ends, and about 2256, it will hiccup and restart with speech
in German saying "This is the voice of turkey". and then a broadcast in
German will commence.

German isn't scheduled at this time of day, it happens much earlier.

The transmission in German will continue anywhere between 15 and 45
minutes before being abruptly shut off in mid sentence.

I suspect that the Turksat 3A or Turksat 4A satelitte feed from Ankara is
what feeds the Emirler Shortwave transmitter site. And, when the english
broadcast ends on the satellite next up is German and since the 9830khz
transmitter doesn't shut off, that's what we hear.
