Radio Azadi on 15.090 kHz was next in my log. They were broadcasting in the Dari language.
Radio Azadi was formerly known as Radio Free Afghanistan. The station is the Afghan branch of the United State’s Government Radio Free Europe/Radio Libert’s external broadcast services.
Radio Free Afghanistan first aired in Afghanistan from 1985 to 1993 and was re-launched in January 2002 as Radio Azadi. According to Radio Azadi, their mission is “to promote and sustain democratic values and institutions in Afghanistan by disseminating news, factual information and ideas”
Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty first launched this service on the 1st day of October 1985 during the period of the SOviet invasion of Afghanistan. The purpose of the broadcasts was “to bring objective and uncensored news and information to the population and resistance forces of Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.
The overall reception of Radio Azadi was fair.
Below is a short video of my reception of Azadi Radio.
