My next station on 9th October 2021 was the Voice of Indonesia on 3325 kHz on the 90m shortwave band.
I tuned in at 1320 UTC. The program was in the English language.
The Voice of Indonesia is a part of Radio Reublik Indonesia which broadcasts all over Indonesia and abroad to serve all Indonesian citizens anywhere in the country and abroad. RRI also provides information about Indonesia to people around the world. Voice of Indonesia is the division for abroad broadcasting.
The Voice of Indonesia was coming in relatively well. The signal was fair with moderate fading. There was no interference from adjacent stations. However, it was the static crashes that made listening difficult at times.
Below is a video of my reception of the Voice of Indonesia as heard on my Tecsun S-2000 and the Tecsun random wire just a few feet off the ground.
Next in the log on 9th October 2021, was the Voice of the Strait broadcasting from Fuzhou City in China on 4900 kHz.
I tuned in at 1153 UTC. The program was in the Chinese language.
The Voice of the Strait was founded on the 24th day of August 1958 and is located in Fuzhou City in Fujian province. Its predecessor was the PLA Fujian Front Line Broadcasting Station.
The station is owned by the People’s Liberation Army of China.
The target audience is Taiwan. In 2015 the unit which operates Voice of the Strait was transferred from the People’s Liberation Army General Political Department to the People’s Liberation Army Strategic Support Force which is primarily responsible for psychological warfare operations against Taiwan.
The Voice of the Strait website states:-
“The Voice of the Straits has become an air bridge for spreading news and information and communicating cross-strait emotions with the concept of sincere communication, rich and colorful content, and lively and diverse forms.”
