Radio Nyawa Sarawak


Radio Nyawa Sarawak (presumed to be transmitting either from Palau or more likely Taiwan, since the T8WH Medorm transmitter site recently closed) was heard on 25 November 2019. Conversation/interview between announcer and Sidi Munan, President of the Sarawak Dayak Iban Association (SADIA) discussed land rights. This was followed by Romuald Siew of Niah discussing palm oil plantation in his community. Andrew Paul talked about rural children. Broadcast was in Iban and Bahasaa Malaysia, and observed from from 11.15 till 11.45 UTC (07.15 till 07.45pm, KL time). Reception on the short-wave frequency of 11.890 kHz rated a SINPO of 55544 -- strong and clear signal despite some fading. HERE is  Radio Nyawa Sarawak.

Reception report was emailed and submitted online on the same day. Follow-up submission occurred on 3 December 2019. An acknowledgement, short of the traditional QSL, was received on 4 December 2019.
