Radio Farda – 15690 kHz

My final station logged on Sunday evening (17th October 2021) was Radio Farda on 15690 kHz in the 19m shortwave band. The broadcast was in the Farsi language.

Radio Farda is the Persian language broadcaster at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, providing 24/7 radio programs for Iran on multiple platforms including shortwave.

Radio Farda first aired December 2002. Radio Farda broadcasts news on topics like political, cultural, social, and art with an emphasis on Iran. The name “Farda” means “tomorrow” in Persian. Radio Farda’s broadcasts have been continually blocked by Iranian authorities over the history of its programming.

Overall reception of Radio Farda was good.
