** BIAFRA [non]. 11530, Sunday November 12 at 1921 tune-in, good new signal in English, but some deep fades, YL giving long phone number, +234-810-617-7870, ID as “Radio Biafra, broadcasting from London“, schedule 6-7 am on 7240 and 11530, 8-9 pm on 11530 [UT +1; = 05-06 & 19-20 UT]; bit of hilife music, 1922 same announcement in language, presumed Igbo/Ibo, still pronounces frequencies in English; 1925 English ID again and schedule; 1926 music; 1927 switch to OM in language, mentions I-phones, music. 1927 mentions Jesus Christ;

1933 I start to record. She gives her name as host of morning and evening broadcasts, asks for text messages to above of how listeners are receiving us on any of “these numbers“. Stay tuned for important announcement; 1940 music, and 1941 the message by the OM in English, gives his name, but with a very heavy accent hard to understand (starting at 4:08 into my 8-minute recording). He and the Indigenous People of Biafra have decided to dismiss and remove the director of Radio Biafra and IPOB. Gives his long name which includes Nnamdi. Reasons include something he did “leading to death of many innocent young people“; and “turning IPOB into a money-making machine“ along with his father; cites sums in millions of dollars and pounds sterling. If anyone can copy the exact wording of the entire announcement, please do so. Listen:

This is again brokered by Radio Miami International. Latest HFCC of November 10 shows:

7240 0500 0600 46S,47N,47SW,52NW
ISS 100 170 0 216 1234567 291017 240318 D Mul F RMI TDF 1258 NIG-Ten
11530 0500 0600 46
RMI 100 87 0 902 1234567 121117 250318 D Eng USA RMI FCC 16567
11530 1900 2000 46
RMI 100 87 0 902 1234567 121117 250318 D Eng USA RMI FCC 16568

So this is via WRMI itself at both times, while 7240 is France. Biafra really applies only to CIRAF 46-SE, while entire 46 encompasses all of Nigeria, indeed all of west Africa south of Algeria and Morocco.

No other real programming yet, just repetitions of the schedule, etc.

In DXLD 17-43, I picked out these from HFCC as of Oct 25:

“RMI is also registered for a number of transmissions via Issoudun, France toward Africa, not all of them current or known:

7240 at 05-06, multilingual, {170 degrees to 46S,47N,47SW,52NW}
9610 at 19-20, English, {207 degrees to 46W [not Nigeria]}
11795 at 19-20, multilingual {169 degrees to 46S,47N,47SW,52NW}
13740 at 0730-0830, Hausa
15440 at 0730-0830, Hausa
15450 at 1730-1800, Oromo
17765 at 1600-1700, Hausa“

As in DXLD 17-44, Ivo erroneously assumed these registered transmissions would be for something else:
“Winter B-17 inactive clandestine transmissions via WRMI broker
Radio Niger Delta Voice of Peace
0500-0600 on 7240 ISS 100 kW / 170 deg to WeAf English
1900-2000 on 11795 ISS 100 kW / 170 deg to WeAf English“

11530 has obviously replaced 11795, and is now registered as from WRMI itself, not Issoudun. And also evidently replacing this drawn from the same HFCC Oct 25:

“Here`s one new entry: 9840 at 06-08 on 87 degrees to Africa.
9840 has been associated with WHRI which still has it at 12-24“

Radio Biafra had been silent for some months, but had an entry a year ago in the WRTH 2017 on page 515 — when it was at 18-21 on 15325 via Bulgaria. It`s the same organisation, IPOB, and the L.P. Dir. Was Nnamdi Kanu.

Website is http://www.radiobiafra.co — yes, .co as in Colombia, not .com! It`s rather cluttered, but has current dates on some audio clips. And some rather alarming headlines, such as “Nigeria is a Failed State“. Elexions are coming up on 18 November, in Anambra State, probably explaining why this is back on air now. One of the scrolling stories is about “Nnamdi Kanu missing after military invaded his home, killing everyone in sight“. Is this a different Nnamdi than the one mentioned on air???? Has there been a coup at IPOB?

They have hopes of joining Catalonia and Kurdistan in independence. Good luck with that! The Broadcasts tab on the website gets a 502 “bad gateway“ error (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 15155, Sunday November 12 at 1831, children`s chorus song in English, mentions Jesus; fair S9-S6, second SSOB below incomparable blaster 15710 WHRIBS, i.e. stronger than Spain 15500, 15580 VOA (and no Cuba at the moment). 1835 mentions “New life program from Adventist World Radio, the Voice of Hope“; recheck at 1857 until 1858* cut off air mid-song. HFCC shows this is daily 1830-1900 [sic], 125 kW, 325 degrees from Talata to CIRAFs 48SW,52E,53NW, i.e. no further than E Africa, but carrying on all the way to deep North America.

Would have been a nice spot for Wavescan, but AWR grants that only a single airtime on the one station it owns, KSDA, and relies on connexions with WRMI, KVOH for most broadcasts, reserving most of the time it buys on sites like MDC for its own more important overtly religious broadcasts (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** SOUTH CAROLINA [non]. 11825, Nov 12 at 1333 via WRMI, Brother Scare is deciding on 2018 broadcast contracts in next 8-10 days; may go off at the end of year, he says, according to God`s will, no doubt depending on the amount of millions of $$$ he can now raise from psychophants; Or extend it “just a little while longer“. (The Last Days are always just around the corner!!) While he lays “the groundwork for my final demise“ (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 15610 and 12065, Sunday Nov 12 at 1448, no trace of WEWN English on either frequency, while Spanish is still on 5970 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
