A site about the radio listening hobby and my activities therein - longwave, mediumwave, shortwave, FM, and television DXing. A site about the radio listening hobby in all its forms, or at least the forms that interest me.

BSKSA, All India Radio, and More

Several shortwave broadcasts logged today. (All are relogs except for the logging of All India Radio);
  • Deutsche Welle, 9655 kHz, at 2050-2100 UTC in English transmitting from Kigali, Rwanda relay site. Good signal. Show "Inside Europe" about hobby of letterboxing.
  • CBC Northern Quebec Service, 9625 kHz, at 2115-2130 UTC in English transmitting from Sackville, NB, Canada. Fair, somewhat fluttery signal. Show "A propos" about French Canadian music.
  • Broadcasting Service of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (tentative). 9555 kHz, 2150-2204 UTC, in Arabic, with fair signal. Tentative - no ID heard. Arabic music, ID (indecipherable) on hour, then into talk by man. Clearly a station from the middle east and WRTH has Saudi Arabia on here at this time. This would be from Riyadh. 500 kW.
