Radio Miraya FM - Sudan

Radio Miraya FM, sponsored by the United Nations Mission in Sudan and Fondation Hirondelle, was heard in the Arabic language on 17 April 2011. Broadcast time was from 14.00 to 17.00 UTC, but was monitored from 15.30 to 17.00 UTC. The signal on 15.710 kHz  was  45544 (SINPO) -- strong and clear with slight fading, which is great considering the transmitter site is supposedly in Slovakia, not Sudan per se. Programming format entailed news and sports, commentary on current events in Sudan and frequent station IDs. Radio Nederland's interval signal was logged at 16.59 UTC on the same frequency, just before sign-off.

While searching the Internet for an address to Radio Miraya FM -- not available on their website by the way  -- I noticed a QSL card was received by a Japanese short-wave listener. The address on the card was from Fondation Hirondelle. Subsequently, I submitted a reception report on-site to Fondation Hirondelle at: and posted a letter as well to this organisation. QSL card arrived promptly on 5 May 2011.
