Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio

Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio, transmitter  location unknown (purportedly a Babcock site), was logged on 18 February 2016. An English language broadcast aimed at instructing Ugandans on how to vote, to prevent vote rigging and to support candidate Mr Besigye and his FDC (Forum for Democratic Change) was observed from 16.30 till 17.00 UTC. This broadcast was interesting in that it differs from elections I have personally witnessed in the United States and Malaysia. There appeared to be a genuine concern to get the vote out and to give democracy a chance in the upcoming Ugandan general election.  Reception on 15.405 kHz was (SINPO) 55545 -- good audio and signal strength, despite minor fading.

HERE is an audio excerpt from this broadcast.

Reception report with audio file was emailed and submitted online; however, I am doubtful QSLs are their priority at the moment.
