Radio Algérie Internationale now broadcasting one hour via Issoudun transmitter

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Richard Langley, who writes:

Just a quick note to let you know that Radio Algérie Internationale is now broadcasting for an hour on SW using an Issoudun transmitter. The multilingual (French, Arabic, English, and Spanish) broadcast is at 18:00 UTC, presumed daily, is on 13820 kHz. I heard it very well yesterday using the U.Twente SDR receiver but it might also be heard well in eastern North America.

Richard did include a small disclaimer that Issoudun seems to be using their faulty transmitter with a “squeaky” sound in the background. I’m sure many of you are familiar with this–fortunately, it’s not too distracting.

Thank you for the tip, Richard!

    Long time reader, first time comment here! I heard the R. Algerie Int’l broadcast today, Arabic interspersed with French and Spanish, but no English. Whirring or chirping in background. Decent signal received on a Tecsun r9710 pocket analog.

    Good signal into New Brunswick, Canada, this afternoon. Still with the funky transmitter.
