A strong signal with a clear ID from Conakry, Guinea, heard in Oxford UK on 08/08/16 at 18:04 hrs UTC using my trusty Panasonic RF-B65 and a 50 metre longwire. No SYNC of course, but once again, the vintage Panasonic performs very well for this personal-first reception. I do have another recording of this station using the Sony ICF-2001D, from which a performance comparison can be made at a later date. Great to hear Radio Guinée by the way; I believe they had been off-air for around 5 years, until earlier this year. Click the image below to watch the reception video on Oxford Shortwave log.

I received R. Guinea on 9650 kHz at 20:00 and 22:00 UTC on 8/13/16 from the porch of my Kentucky home. My equipment was a Tecsun PL-880 and its whip. The first signal was weak and, while I recognized the language as French, I could hear relatively few words. The second signal was substantially stronger and I could make out individual words. The reception of R. Guinea combined with the overall good reception conditions made for a pleasurable afternoon.
Guinea was strong in downtown Chicago yesterday on 9650 kHz, too. I heard it from 2300 past 0020 UTC on my Commradio CR-1a, using a GODAR FMDXR1000 whip antenna. Has anyone confirmed that this actually is coming from Guinea or is it via one of the strong relay stations in France or Germany?
As they don’t always sign off exactly on the hour, that might indicate that they are using their own transmitter (formerly listed as 50 kW) rather than a relay.
It is Conakry.
