No signal from Radio Biafra this morning Dec.4 at 0545-0600 UT on 7240 ISS
and 11530 RMI.
Also no signal yesterday Dec.3 1900-2000UT on 9580 ISS, 11530 RMI

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
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]

CLANDESTINE (Nigeria) 7240, Radio Biafra â Issoudun, *0500-0522 on Dec 3,
opened with woman announcer giving station ID ("This is Radio Biafra
coming to you from London"), music features and talks in the English
language. Poor to fair. Noted // 11530 Okeechobee which had a WRMI ID
string leading up to opening for about five minutes prior to 0500. Also,
poor to fair. (Rich DâAngelo-PA-USA, DXplorer Dec 3/4)
