My final station logged on 7th November 2021 was a very interesting one. It was Republic of Yemen Radio broadcasting in the Arabic language on 11860 kHz in the 25m band.
Yemen is a country in Western Asia, on the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Saudi Arabia to the north and Oman to the northeast and shares maritime borders with Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia.
Yemen is currently six years into an armed conflict that has claimed over 18,400 civilian lives. It is reported that Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.
The World Radio TV Handbook reports that Republic of Yemen Radio broadcasts in support of Yemeni President Hadi and the Aden based provisional government. It is believed that transmissions are aired via transmitters in Saudi Arabia.
I was receiving Republic of Yemen Radio quite well. The signal strength was good and there was only slight fading on the signal.
Below is a video of my reception of Republic of Yemen Radio.
