After sign-on, African music is continuously played for about 2 hrs and then suddenly Ugandan national anthem starts, followed by talk program in local language (sometimes I heard English speech as well).  The talk sounds like a lecture and the word “Uganda” is heard many times.  The following record is the national anthem and beginning of a talk program.  By the way, what does “Munansi” mean?

After Deutche Welle via Issoundun on the same frequency signed off, a carrier signed on and the Biafra broadcast started from the mid of the program.  The following video shows the ending of DW followed by the starting of Biafra.

Receiver: Microtelecom Perseus    Antenna: MFJ-1899T Whip (Roof top of my car)

The station name has been confirmed as Radio Abisinia, according to a Japanese DXers’ discussion site.

Abisinia (in English typically spelled as Abyssinia) is the old name of Ethiopia.

Amharic ID sounds like “Yeh Radio Abisinia neu.”  They seem to broadcast on shortwave Saturday only.

Here in NJ, the reception at the beginning was relatively weak but toward the end (before 1800 UTC), the signal was getting better.  The following video includes both parts.
