Afghanistan DX Guide:
1296 kHz is only presumed to be from Orzu in Tajikistan by the editor of this guide. The USAGM/Radio Azadi
announcement about the resumption of broadcasts on this frequency did not specify where they are coming from. Kabul
could be a possibility but the current state of US-Taliban relations might suggest otherwise. Prior to the introduction and
expansion of broadcasts from Kabul (Pol-e Charkhi) on 1296 kHz, Radio Azadi had been relayed from Orzu on 801 kHz
until early 2004, along with 972 kHz at certain times which is still used by the USAGM for VOA broadcasts to Afghanistan.
Azadi was confirmed with an ID on 1296 kHz on 1 February 2023 at 2215 UTC using the KiwiSDR in New Delhi.
