BBC in Amharic/Oromo/Tigrinya Mon-Fri to North East Africa  View Printable Version

So is a lie that Babcock FMO frequency management organization,
sells to the BBC London Ethiopian section service ?

An ITU antenna type of '216' at 195 degrees
covers approximately +/- 30degrees properly,

so 165degr western part of ETH covered,

195deg azimuth main lobe cross Pyrgos Greece location,
Bengazi Libya, Chad and Cameroun,
latter distance 2700 kilometers west of Addis Ababa capital

and 225degr is Ivory Coast and Liberia ...

BBC starts Horn of Africa SW broadcasts today (29 Jan).
Here's the missing post again, more or less.

"Schedule is, enriched with data from HFCC database Jan 29:

1730-1830 on 7595 SOF, 11720 UAE, and 12065 kHz MEY
SOF SPC-NURTS Sofia Kostinbrod relay 200 kW 156degr
UAE Al Dhabbaya relay 250 kW 230degr
MEY SenTec Meyerton RSA / AFS relay 100 kW 15degr

1830-1930 on 9855{sic rather 9885 MEY}; and 15490 kHz ASC
ASC Babcock Ascension Island relay 250 kW 70degr
MEY SenTec Meyerton RSA / AFS relay 250 kW 19degr

1730 Amharic
1750 Oromo
1810 Tigrinya
1830 Amharic (repeat of 1730 UT)
1850 Oromo (repeat of 1750 UT)
1910 Tigrinya (repeat of 1810 UT)"

Used the University Enschede Twente SDR receiver to monitor the
broadcasts.


All three frequencies for the 1730 UT sequence were rather weak.
But the 7595 kHz frequency improved at some point during the hour and
when

noticed at 1820 UT was fairly readable. English lesson in the last 5
minutes. No jamming noticed.

At first, nothing heard on the two frequencies for the 1830 UT sequence.
But Ivo posted a correction for the 31 mb frequency: 9885 kHz.
And when I retuned, there was a fairly strong signal there.
Nothing heard on 15490 kHz. No jamming noticed on either frequency.

As mentioned in a subsequent posting, all three language programs had
an English lesson in the last 5 minutes of the programs.

Tom Taylor passing away  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 31 2018

HCDX
Tom Taylor passing awayWith great sadness we report the death of European Music Radio's founder and short wave legend Tom Taylor, to many also known as Barry Stephens. For many dedicated SW free radio enthusiasts, E.M.R. was thà station in the late 1970s and 1980. As from 1980 onwards E.M.R. and FRS became sister stations. Within a few days a Memorial with some personal memories will be put on the FRS site. We will inform you via mail when it will be on-line.
All of us at FRS are shocked by Tom's death. He indeed was a short wave legend. May he rest in peace.

Peter Verbruggen (on behalf of the FRS Team)
