Afia Darfur / Media Broadcast GmbH (Issoudun)

Afia Darfur  (Hello Darfur)- IBB / Media Broadcast GmbH, transmitting from Issoudun, France, was logged on 24 November 2013. Curiously, "the transmission was scheduled at Nauen but realized at Issoudun," according to Walter Brodowsky, Head of Short-wave at Media-Broadcast. An Arabic / Sudanese language broadcast of news, current events and brief music segments sequeged between reports was monitored from 18.05 to 18.30 UTC (broadcast time 18.00 to 18.30 UTC). Reception on 9.645 kHz was (SINPO) 34443 -- fair signal strength, some transmitter noise in the background of audio feed, otherwise speech was audible and discernible. At 18.28 UTC, strong interference from China Radio International prevented reception.

A reception report was emailed the following day to Media Broadcast GmbH. An eQSL was received on 26 November 2013 from Walter Brodowsky.
