Radio Azadi – 15640 kHz

Next in the log on Saturday 6th November 2021 was Radio Azadi, broadcasting in the Pashto language to Afghanistan on 15640 kHz.

I tuned in at 1151 UTC.

I have listened to Radio Azadi previously, but this was a new frequency for me. On this frequency, Radio Azadi was using a 250kW transmitter in Kuwait.

Radio Azadi’s broadcasts are targeted towards Afghanistan. Radio Azadi, formerly known as Radio Free Afghanistan, is the Afghan branch of the U.S. government’s Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty’s external broadcast services.

Below is a short video I found on YouTube re Radio Azadi.

I was receiving Radio Azadi quite well. The signal strength was good and there was no interference from signals on or around the frequency. Fading of the signal was only slight.


Below is a short video of my reception of Radio Azadi.
