9530   ASCENSION IS. R. Akhbar Mufriha (HCJB) - Ascension Is. S/on 2145 with ID and what sounded like a radio play (!). Beams to WAf and heard with a weak signal here until f/out at 2200. Depending on which reference you look at, the language of this broadcast is either Pulaar or Hassinya. Pulaar is a Fula language spoken by people in Senegal, Mauritania, the Gambia, and western Mali. Hassinya is an Arabic language from the Maghrebi group (there are many regional varieties of Arabic!) and is spoken in Mauritania, Mali, Algeria, Libya, Senegal, Morocco and neighbouring countries. What I was listening to SOUNDED more like a derivative of Arabic to my ears…..but really I just don’t know. I remain defeated in this language identification!. Apr 23.


7300   ENGLAND. R. Akhbar Mufriha (HCJB) - Woofferton. Arabic preaching at 2130 to NAf, fair signal until s/off 2145, Apr 23.
