Radio Guinée / Radio Télévision Guinéenne (Conakry)

Radio Guinée / Radio Télévision Guinéenne (RTG), transmitting from Conakry (Republic of Guinea) in west Africa,  was logged on 17 September 2016. Programming in French entailed a lot of nice West African (Guinéenne) music, conversations and frequent station IDs from 18.10 till 19.30 UTC.

Reception of Radio Guinéenne was on the short-wave frequency of 9.650 kHz.  Initially only a strong carrier and no audio was detected at 18.10 UTC. After tuning in again at around 18.50 UTC, audio was present and observed to be strong with clear audio, a bit of station splatter and slight fading. This was nearly eliminated by filtering to a narrow bandwidth.  Reception remained strong as late as 19.30 UTC. Overall SINPO rated 44544.

HERE's how Radio Guinée sounded in Malaysia.

Reception report was written in French and submitted with audio files. It was emailed, sent online to multiple websites and posted in subsequent days. Hopefully Radio Guinée has a better track record for QSLing than most African stations.
