** SOUTH AFRICA. Radio Sonder Grense, 9650 Meyerton. Oct 30, 2011,
Sunday. 0722-0727 Afrikaans, OM with monologue. Good. Jo'burg sunrise
0321. Later, from 1055-1115, Afrikaans. The end of Beethoven's 7th??
symphony, then into a Peugeot advert. Time pips at 1100, 3 seconds
early according to my computer clock (synchronised yesterday at 1616
with http://www.time.windows.com Good. Jo'burg sunrise 0321.
Radio Sonder Grense, Oct 30, 2011, Sunday. 1105-1115. On 9675 and
9625, horrible spurs 25 kHz (5 channels) up and down from 9650
fundamental. Received on Drake R8 and Hallicrafters SX122. According
to HFCC B11 Channel Africa is supposed to use 9625 on weekdays from
0700 to 1200; will there be a problem tomorrow (Monday)?? Jo'burg
Radio Sonder Grense, 9650 Meyerton. Nov 02, 2011, Wednesday. 0835-
0842. Afrikaans. Neil Diamond record, then advert for a business in
Randfontein (on J'burg's West Rand). Other ads followed, including an
invitation to contact one company at "3 rands per SMS" (the rand is
the local currency). Jo'burg sunrise 0319.
Channel Africa, 9625 Meyerton. Oct 31, 2011, Monday. 0712-0810.
African choir singing about Africans, then YL interviews OM about SA's
response to other Africans and other liberation movements, and what
individuals need to do for success and progress in life. Programme
ended at 0720, into (presumably) its theme music. Time check "Nine
twenty Central African Time" then into international financial news.
South Africa is apparently on the brink of an economic crisis; that's
the first time I've heard the ANC admit what most other Joe Soap's
have known for ages.
At 0725 "Change the Tune", about gender and gender-based violence, a
programme produced by various civil society groups in association with
"Channel Africa" (I'll take that as an ID). Later, at 0807, a proper
ID, "Channel Africa, the Voice of the African Renaissance" (an
Mbeki'ism) and then "Broadcasting from Aukland Park in Johannesburg".
At a later check, 1331, found them still here, but in Lozi language,
still with good signal. The upper spur from Sonder Grense is very weak
on 9675 today (much weaker than yesterday), so Channel Africa must be
squashing the lower one on 9625 into the background. Good reception of
Channel Africa today. Jo'burg sunrise 0320.
Channel Africa, 9625 Meyerton. Nov 02, 2011, Wednesday. 0827-0835.
Financial news, then at 0830 "Rhythms from Africa", featuring a South
African musician. Good. Jo'burg sunrise 0319. Later, 1216-1226,
Nyanja, OM's talking about African current affairs, mentioned
"Mozambique", "Maputo International Airport", "South Africa". Fair, to
Southern and Central Africa. Malawi and Zambia are the prime targets
for the Nyanja language. Jo'burg sunset 1626 (Bill Bingham, RSA, DX
