Over this last weekend of 1/2 of October, I managed to get in some good listening sessions, amongst the chores! Propagation was good on Saturday, but decidedly worse on Sunday. However, there were still stations to hear and log. A new one for the log was R.Munansi, relayed from WWRB in the USA. From the Radio Munansi website comes the following info:
“Radio Munansi is a community radio station that seek to stimulate, educate and entertain our audience, to reflect the diversity of the local and world community, and to provide a channel for individuals, groups, issues and music that have been overlooked, suppressed or under-represented by the current Ugandan government.”
The transmission was in the Luganda language so no idea what was being discussed.
On Sunday, I managed to log Ethiopian BC Corp French transmission, not one I manage very often. So that was nice to get in the log.
It just goes to show that when conditions are marginal, don’t turn the radio off. Have a tune around, you never no what may make the trip!
And now for the logs.
