Voice of Amara Radio (via Addis Ababa)

Voice of Amara Radio, transmitting from Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), was logged on 23 September 2016. Horn of Africa music and commentary in Amharic was noted from 14.20 till 14.45 UTC (sign-on at 14,00 UTC). Reception on 6.090 kHz was (SINPO) 24331 -- poor signal strength, audible speech and music, but largely indecipherable after 14.35 UTC. Slight fade and transmitter hum as well atmospheric noise plagued much of the broadcast. By 14.40 UTC, audio gradually dropped off and a dominant carrier signal was present.

Reception report with an audio file was submitted online and Facebook messaged, both of which I am almost certain will be to no avail. Surprise! Surprise! An email confirming reception was received on 26 January 2017.
