Breaking: Radio Kuwait is back on the air–?

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who writes:


As heard by Rich Nowak and posted on the Gary J. Cohen SWL Group
on Facebook, then confirmed here in Maryland, it appears that Kuwait
is back on shortwave, heard from 2000 UTC on 15540. While the signal
level does not approach what we all remember from Kuwait, it is definitely
there, with pop music, and seemingly some local ads. I have not heard an
ID, as of 2023 UTC.

Very cool! Thank you for sharing the tip and confirming, Dan! I’ll add 15540 to my listening schedule again–I’ve always loved listening to Radio Kuwait.

Spread the radio love

    I was listening to it today around 1830 UTC, at 15.540 kHz. Signal was very strong in my part of the world (the Balkans). If anyone knows a valid email or postal address of RK, please post. Thank you!

    Heard Radio Kuwait today, May 14 2017, on 15540 kHz, from 1825 UTC to 2033 UTC. with SINPO 55555 at
    1825 UTC. Signal dropped to 44444 at 2046 UTC. A17 EIBI states this transmission is scheduled from
    1800 to 2100 UTC to UK and India.
    Their was some slight fading of the radio signal, although the modulation was easy to hear and
    understand. Programs were mostly musical interludes (pop music), news, ‘This Day In History’, and ‘A Woman’s Heart’. Reception reports, I think I heard, to ‘[email protected]’. I am going to try that email
    address. I hope that one works.

    Yes! I would listen to Radio Kuwait’s English Service every afternoon on 15540 kHz back in 2014, I’m elated to hear that they are back on the air. I’ll be listening!
