Yakutia restarts on shortwave
Shortwave broadcasts from Radio Sakha, Sakha (Yakutia) Republic have resumed after ceasing back in 2010 [March 2011].
Frequency 7345 kHz audible at 0900 UT today, 7 May, with sign on of their evening broadcast including weather, (via remote rx Global Tuners, Japan), parallel frequency is weaker 7295 kHz. (maybe audible at night here in UK, though both frequencies widely used by others, e.g CNR)
Report on resumption of shortwave broadcasts, including TV news reports
online (in Russian) here: http://nvk-online.ru/news/6819
Says shortwave covers 2.5 million square kilometres, 78% of the area of Yakutia. Shortwave broadcasts had been suspended in 2010, and so the signal was only audible on FM in towns. Now with launch of shortwave Radio Yakut, fisherman, hunters and people leading a nomadic lifestyle outside the settlements can listen.Thanks to tip from Vasily Gulyaev on WRTH F_B group, 6 May.
The Sakha Republic covers such a huge area, it spans three time zones. It is also renowned for recording some of the lowest temperatures ever.
