Ifrikya FM ALGERIA 15.160 AM //17.600 1844 UTC 13 FEB 2024
« on: February 13, 2024, 1859 UTC »
1844 - Ifrikya FM ID at tune-in, then song by (Presumed) Mdou Moctar (incredible guitarist - check him out on Youtube).
1850 - Female announcer in Arabic: Talk over instrumental music.
1856 - More Saharan rock with male vocalist.
(Good signal; no interference; mild to sometimes moderate static); steady signal with good audio for music.)
1900 - Time pips at the hour, followed by a brief announcement ("Africa"), then presumed news read by male announcer.
(//17.600 is SINPO 55454!) (15.160 = 35343)
1909 - Several mentions of "Africa."
(Correction: FR, not AR, as shortwave.info says.)
1915 - Female caller heard, then two males talk. "Allo?" (Listening o 17.600 now. Headphones not needed.)
1921 - Brief song with female vocalist and xylaphone, the announcement by male and female announcers. Back to two male announcers talking. Mentioned "Francais."
