RRI Wamena (Jayapura)

RRI Wamena in Jayapura, Papua, Indonesia was heard on 26 March 2012. A broadcast of easy listening music moderated by a male announcer in Bahasa Indonesia was monitored from 11.10 to 12.10 UTC.  transmission was on 4.870 kHz.  One source on the Internet purports the transmitter output is a mere 300 watts. Reception (SINPO) at 11.10 UTC was 15321 -- weak signal strength, atmospheric noise and fading, but able to detect speech and music. At 12.00 UTC reception quality remained unchanged.

Reception report was submitted on Facebook page. Again, RRI has an unreliable reputation for confirming reception reports. This Letter of Verification was emailed by RRI-VoI on 16 July 2013.

  1. What was the programme content like- intersting? RRI would be a fine catch here in the UK.
