FRANCE 7240 Radio Biafra relay at TDF Issoudun this Dec 5 morning, when
monitored tune-in here a little late at 0502 UT.

Program lasted til 05.28:20 UT station annmt by the lady presenter.
Then 'final music' piece played til 05.28:41 UT on full power.

100 kW TX switch-off at 05.30:06 UT.

But then still low-power exciter signal from Issoudun on air at S=7 level,
til 05:30:55 UT switch off totally.

My late tune-in around 0502 UT on Dec 5 showed R Biafra program in progress,
on 7240 kHz via ISS and 11530 kHz via WRMI Okeechobee FL-US east coast.

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.

7240 kHz S=8 signal in Germany and Belgium remote servers,
but stronger at S=9+15dB or -66dBm noted in Liverpool UK remote SDR's
and also more northern distant location in Stockholm Sweden Perseus remote
server. 10.4 kHz wideband audio block.

Heard R Biafra also on 25 mb 11530 kHz S=9+10dB in NJ-US at 0501 UT,
12.4 kHz wideband audio block visible,
(TOM religious 11580 S=9+25dB in NJ-US) from Florida.

11530 kHz tiny in European posts just JBA threshold S=4 or -93dBm.
To compare TOM 11580 kHz little stronger S=7 -83dBm instead, 11.4 main audio
block broadband, peaks up to 22 kHz wideprogram. Radioplay like, talk on
Israel 'Sky' matter, earth and moon, sunrise, sunset etc. etc.

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
