VOA Ashna Radio – 12140 kHz

My third station logged on 12th November 2021 was Voice of America – Ashna Radio, broadcasting in the Pashto language.

This was a new station for me.

VOA Ashna, which means ‘Friend’ targets a listening audience in Afghanistan. It is reported that VOA Ashna reaches about 64% of Afghanistan’s adult population. The station broadcasts two 30 minute broadcasts per day. One in the Dari language, and one in Pashto. Their programs feature various issues including current affairs, U.S. policies, security, health, science, entertainment, sports, youth and women’s rights.

The overall reception of Ashna Radion was fair.
