15290 1900 2030 46,47,52ABZ 100 250 211 Eng EGY ERU

Yes at 19z left Abu Zabaal 15285 kHz, moved to 15290 kHz in West Africa
azimut to zones 46,47,52,
but tiny signal though like exciter string seen in western Europe and at
KiwiSDR unit in Brazil too.

Adjacent RFI 15300 kHz much, much stronger signal...

When checked end of transmission, 20.28:30 TX OFF, string disappeared.

Nothing on air today Saturday on 9570 nor 9605 kHz.
