station La Voix de Djibouti is back on shortwave, Sundays at 1400-1500 UTC on 17870.
Heard today with a weak signal here, but much stronger on the Kuwait
Started at 1400 in
vernaculars (possibly Afar or Somali) followed by some segments in Arabic and
French when the ID “La Voix de Djibouti” was heard. Off abruptly at 1459
after short Horn of Africa music.
This new broadcast was
initially reported on 7 June by Ivo Ivanov (Bulgarian SW Blog) with the ID
“Radio Vendredi” but its actual on-air name is La Voix de Djibouti, an
opposition broadcast which has been on the air in the past.
Thanks to Tony Rogers whose
research has helped to identify this. Tony's records show that it was
last heard on SW some 10 years ago in 2010.
