I heard the General Programme of Egyptian Radio on 819 khz at night of 28th to 29th of January, 2011. with the following programme and times.
Around 20.15 UTC i heard a phoning in programme.
At 22.05 UTC (648 khz BBC WorldService) they announced that the chairman of Egyptian parlament informed the public that some important announcement will be aired soon. Next I tuned to 819 khz, but, i heared only arabic music.
Around 22.20-22.28 utc I heared the speech of president Mubarak which were repeated around 22.58-23.0.6 Between the speech and its repetition, arabic music and a short announcement was heard.
At 23.30-23.40 UTC news programme. I think they broadcasted the news which should have been broadcasted at the top of the hour. Only one man read the whole news programme, his voice was monotonous.
23.40-23.50 music.
At 23.50 a radioplay have started, then I went to bed.
Here in Hungary 819 khz has no interference, but has a lot of fading. Signal strength is from nothing to fine (between 1-4).
I tried to hear Egypt also on 621 khz, I detected the president's speech, but the channel is occupied by other stations and Egypt was washed out by stronger stations.
