Radio Omdurman Sudan 7200/7205 kHz
« on: July 26, 2022, 0445 UTC »
Presumed R. Omdurman Sudan on 7200 kHz at 0440z, with presumed Sudanese music playing very legibly beneath some somewhat irritated/amused amateur radio ops.

This seems to be the domestic service, per 2021 WRTH. The music is very interesting, a mix of middle eastern and west African and currently featuring an accordian.
QTH: Sonoran Desert, AZ. Kenwood TS-820S, FT-891, Tecsun 880, neophyte in a forest of antenna wire.

It's been there for decades,you would think the hamsters would wise up and move off the frequency. It's not like the days when African broadcasters were up and down the 40 meter band. No one with a thimble full of sense wants to hear a bunch of guys blathering away about nothing in sideband.
