)No mention of jamming there on 13730, which is all we hear here. And the `het` on 13620 is actually an almost co-channel carrier with tone. Germany, 13730, Radio Dabanga. Wertachtal // 11500. 2011/04/29 fri 1600-1730 Arabic. The first sign of jamming on this frequency, sounded like an alarm in a movie-style nuclear reactor about to blow up, but at low level in the background. By 1650 the alarm had gone, but was replaced by the same (but almost inaudible) continuous tone as heard on 11500. You would not hear it if you were not listening for it. By sign off at 1725* the tone had gone as well. Jo'burg sunset 1540. Madagascar, 11500, Radio Dabanga. Talata Volondry // 13730. 2011/04/29 fri 1600-1720 Arabic.
