Voice of America (via Doraleh)

Voice of America, transmitting from Doraleh,  Djibouti, was heard on 5 December 2019. Arabic programming of current event reports and music was observed from 17.25 till 18.15 UTC. Reception on the medium-wave frequency of 1431 kHz  at 17.30 UTC rated a SINPO of 25422 -- weak but clear content when not fading under atmospheric noise every few minutes. After 18.00 UTC, signal was present but barely audible with next to no discernible content except for faint speech and music. HERE is VOA Djibouti.

Reception report was emailed to VOA and IBB on the following day. This eQSL arrived on 7 January 2020.
