At the end of May, the antennas of the transmitters of Nomeny (Nancy 837, 1350) were destroyed, here is a link for the video of the destruction. Soon no more AM in Europe, unfortunately …

Yesterday, sunspot AR2838 burst through the surface of the sun and promptly unleashed the strongest solar flare in 4 years, an X1.5-class explosion. As quickly as it appeared, the sunspot is already gone. On July 4th it rotated over the sun’s northwestern limb and will spend the next two weeks transiting the far side of the sun. If AR2828 holds itself together, it will re-appear on the Earthside in late July.

Deep apologies. The supposed closure of Abis turned out to have been a maintenance break.
I will move the Abis entry back into Active and change use of 1341kHz back to the Qur’an programme.
Tarek has reported that 1341kHz is a very poor frequency even in Cairo. At night Kuwait dominates.
The recording which Tarek shared with me of 774kHz (at 400kW) indicates that now Cairo is back with excellent coverage of the Middle East programme.

Just as the possibility of enjoying the Abis coverage of the Middle East programme improved after closure of Leeds, I learn from Tarek Zaidan the following:
Today the high power transmitter on 774kHz has been switched off.
The Middle East programme is now on 1341kHz which I believe is from Abu Zaabal with only 100kW.
I have made the necessary changes to the spreadsheets.

In a first, Jharkhand starts radio classes to reach out to children in rural areas.
In yet another move to reach out to the children living in remote villages of Jharkhand, the School Education and Literacy Department has now started conducting radio classes. The sessions will be held five days a week in the morning and evening via mediumwave and FM channels.
According to officials in the School Education and Literacy Department, initially, only 10-minute sessions will be taken which may be extended according to the response from the students.
Radio classes have been launched in Jamshedpur, Chaibasa on Monday and were gradually expanded to other districts like Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Daltonganj, Hazaribagh and Bhagalpur.
