EGIPTO: Radio Cairo en nuevas frecuencias.


YPT. R. Cairo is really fond of the out-of-band lower side of 9 MHz. April 7 at 0131 I am hearing it on 9315, 9305 and 9290.

9315 is open carrier, or possibly just barely modulated. Spanish via Abu Zabaal is scheduled at 0045-0200, English 0200-0330.

9305 is the usual extremely distorted Arabic service, via Abis at 19-07. I often hear it after 0500, 0600, but unlistenable.

9290 has some weak modulation at 0132. Scheduled as Spanish via Abu Zabaal to SAm at 0045-0200.

But that`s not all. HFCC A-11 shows all these other low-9 frequencies at some time during the day from ERU: 9250, 9280, 9295, 9310.

While hunting thru HFCC, let`s pull out all the R. Cairo English frequencies:
1215-1330 17870
1600-1800 12170 or 15345
1900-2030 11510 or 15270
2115-2245 5770 or 6270
2300-2430 6270
0200-0330 9315

I am assuming that where two frequencies are registered, only one will really be in use, as usual for English. I`m surprised that nothing but 6270 is found for 6270 at 2300 in the summer to WNAm; should be on much higher band, and Cairo may have been among those stations scared out of the 6200-6300 range by the Russians. Is the 2115 broadcast really on 5770, or 6270? (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
