Radio and TV
Stay Up-to-Date with World Affairs
The 'Afghanistan DX Timeline' on the website of the BDXC has now been incorporated into an Afghanistan DX Guide.
Compiled by Tony Rogers, the guide also includes broadcasters targeting Afghanistan, as well as stations inside the country on SW and MW, plus a brief history of radio in Afghanistan.
In respect of short wave target broadcasts from Afghanistan International TV on 7600 kHz, Chris Greenway posted on Twitter: “Afghanistan International TV' is a new London-based satellite channel beaming to Afghanistan, launched on 15 Aug (the day the Taliban took Kabul). Its audio is relayed 24/7 on short wave radio (7600 kHz).
"The new station is a sister operation to London-based Iranian International TV. Afghanistan International TV explained that it was due to launch on 21 September, but this was brought forward to 15 August because of the situation on the ground. The TV is currently on air 9 hours a day, but its radio broadcasts on 7600 kHz are 24/7.
Radio enthusiasts say they have tracked down Afghanistan International's radio broadcasts as coming from hired shortwave transmitters in Armenia [Gavar] and Uzbekistan [Tashkent]."
One frequency in use was reported to have been 7600kHz.
