Eritrea opposition group to begin shortwave broadcast Feb. 16

Dave Kernick writes: Eritrean opposition website Asena currently carries the following announcement:

Voice of ASENA will start broadcasting to Eritrea beginning Monday 16th of February 2009, with a frequency 9610 kHz and 31 meter band. The trial radio program, which will have the Eritrean people and army as its target audience runs three times a week: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:30 to 9:00 PM Eritrean time [1730-1800 UTC]“.
This broadcast appears to be courtesy of Belgian transmitter airtime broker TDP, as the same frequency is used for other Eritrean and Ethiopian opposition broadcasts around this time on other days - details here.
