FRANCE 7240 Strange happened with Radio Biafra relay at TDF Issoudun this
morning, when monitored a little late.
Lasted til 0528 UT full power, but 'exiter' low level signal til
approx. 0532 UT then.
My late tune-in around 0516 UT on Dec 4 showed R Biafra program in progress,
mostly WeAfrican music played and female voice ID "This is Radio Biafra
coming to you from London" or "... broadcasting from London".
Excellent audio quality feed from London to Issoudun to state.
S=9 in Germany, Belgium, and Liverpool UK remote SDR's at 0517 UT.
At 05.19:30 UT phone number given, schedule 05-06 UT / 06-07?LT? given.
Flute mx at 0520 UT. When tuned to greater distance from TDF Issoudun bcast
center location to northern Stockholm Sweden remote SDR post, I could heard
stronger S=9+15dB signal there of 7.8 kHz wideband block.
Nothing heard on 25 mb 11530 / 11580 from Florida, not in European posts,
neither in east coast North American remote SDR's so far.
Program Radio Biafra end on SW 7240 kHz at exact 05.28:40 UT.
But after that, noted a - probably - antenna move/switch or power increase
from 100 to 250/500 kW procedure ON AIR from Issoudun broadcast center site
at 05.29 UT, signal increased to S=9+35dB signal. Later on at 05.30:50 UT
outlet decreased to an 'exciter' like signal level of S=6-7, when set to
smaller bandwidth, I could seen an EMPTY carrier later with poor 5 peaks
strings on it.
Two minutes heard African vernacular language program talk of - probably -
Yorba/Igbo langs, as given in latest Aoki Nagoya database list entry under
7240 ISS request ?
Who knows ... 73 wb
[selected SDR options, span 12.5 kHz RBW 15.3 Hertz]

BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Dec 2 at 1900 and later, no signal today from WRMI
for R. Biafra. Dec 3 at 0557, WRMI fill music at S9-S6, song in unknown
language, but tuned in too late to tell if there was any R. Biafra earlier
in this hour. 0600 to Brother Scare, 0635 Planet X stuff, and 0710 recheck
sounds like Hausa, really Radio Herwa International.
