Subject: [bdxc-news] Kyrgyz transmitter - 5130 kHz
With today, 1 May, being the first weekday of the month, the Kyrgyz transmitter
on 5130 kHz should hopefully be back on air from around 1455 UTC
through to close at 1755v UTC.
And with it being a Monday and based on previous monitoring it should be in Dari until 1530
with Christian talks (or perhaps mostly music), followed by South Asian-style songs (at least that’s
what they sound like to me) between 1530-1600,
which may include canned ID’s in English such as "You've chosen the right station,
it's Hit Short Wave" etc, and at 1600 back into Dari with Christian programmes for Afghanistan
from Radio Sadaye Zindagi (Afghan Voice) through to sign-off.
It has also been heard in a Central Asian language on some days, possibly Kazakh, but I’ve not noticed that on a Monday so far.
The 15 kW transmitter is unlikely to make it to the UK at this time of year but it might be heard with decent reception using the online KiwiSDR’s in Novosibirsk and Novokuzneck, both in Russia, and weaker on the KiwiSDR in New Delhi, India.
