CLANDESTINE 7280 Andenet Ledemocracy seems to be here after all. Feb 8 I tuned in to hear VOA (Tinang in Bengali) go off at 1659. VoV then very strong on the channel, but weak male in typical Amharic progr underneath. Some 20 mins only VoV could be heard, but (Amharic) again underneath from 1745. Splash from 7285 didn't make the reception easier. I think it a good idea to move away from that frequency, as intended by Ludo Maes.
