Radio Burkina QSL (via GVH collection)

Did you log and verify Radio Burkina when it was active on shortwave ? Radio Burkina, was the state-run broadcasting service of Burkina Faso. Formerly known as Upper Volta, the land-locked country is located in western Africa.

Last heard in January 2010, the station broadcast on shortwave from Ouagadougou on 5030 kHz and 7230 kHz, and you may recall their sign-on interval signal from an African balafon instrument.

Radio Burkina has not been heard since January 2010.
