Dimtse Radio Erena 9720 AM 1704 UTC 1 Nov. 2018
« on: November 02, 2018, 2323 UTC »

Caught Dimtse Radio Erena via Kostinbrod/Sofia, tuning in just in time to hear a female voice give a “Radio Erena” ID in presumed Tigrinya, then a male voice reading or talking over repetitive background music until at least 1725 UTC.

This is aimed toward Eritrea, but the signal was good, though it wavered after the first few minutes, with increasing noise, as well as choppy distance fading. I tuned back in at 1732 UTC, and programming had switched to Arabic.
