Radio Madagasikara (Antananarivo)

Radio Madagasikara, transmitting from Antananarivo, Madagascar, was logged on 4 and 5 December 2013. A speech from a male announcer, speaking in Malagasy was  monitored from 18.15 to 19.20 UTC on 4 December; on 5 December a selection of local pop music hosted by a male announcer speaking Malagasy was observed from 18.30 to 18.57 UTC. Three days before (3 December), the station was heard signing-off at 19.00 UTC. Programming again consisted of music for over a half hour, then two minutes before transmission ended a male announcer came on.  Reception on 5.011 kHz in LSB mode was (SINPO) 24321 -- weak and noisy with fading, yet faint and audible speech was detected. On other days  the signal was observed on 5.010 kHz. Transmitter is erratic.

Audio samples of Radio Madagasikara on 4 December may be heard HERE and on 5 December  HERE

Reception report was emailed, but to an uncertain destination. May have to post this at a later date. Meanwhile this station merits further listening.
