Radio Mara 17540 khz 17:00 - 18:00 UTC

from DX Remix #811:


MADAGASCAR Radio Mara is a new clandestine station from November 19
1700-1800 on 17540 MDC 250 kW / 310 deg to SoAf Kinyarawanda/Kirundi


watching Twente websdr while I'm at work, carrier tests at 16:27 & comes on for good at 16:55. programming starts with cool afro music with brief announcment at 17:05. Into OM talk at 17:11,after which I had to leave. Signal on Twente was excellent. I'll check on my receivers when I (finally) have a few days off for Thanksgiving next week.

Checking via Twente on 11/22:
Very weak & unable to copy today. I really was digging the afro-tunes yesterday so this was a disappointment.
