Sudan Radio on 7205 again
« on: February 25, 2015, 0115 UTC »
7205   SUDAN. Sudan Radio - Al-Aitahab. Up from the nominal 7200 kHz allocation. Seems it can be heard on either freq these days! Very good signal with Arabic discussions and occasional local music selections at 1850, Feb 24. I have an audio clip at:

For what it's worth, there was recently a note on the Monitoring Times blog about Sudan officially shifting to 7205 from 7200.  I'm not sure how consistent Sudan has been in sticking to 7205, though...

Strong signal here from about 0300 UTC onward. Sign on seems to vary night to night.

I was listening to them last night from roughly 1:00 to 2:25 utc on 7205. Killer signal and excellent production quality. They used a Smiths song as music bed in one segment.  This definitely isn't your Grandpa's Sudan Radio.

They abruptly went off the air at 2:25 utc.
