Default Radio Tanzania Zanzibar

Hearing the news in English at 1800 from Radio Tanzania Zanzibar on
11734.1

Announcer started off by stating that it was 9 o'clock East African
Time, then news headlines, then the news in full.

This was preceded by the Interval Signal, which I stated yesterday was a
drum beat, but as it turns out it may be a xylophone or pikisphone,
which at times may sound like a drum beat. At any rate, it's interesting
that they have an English news bulletin.

At 1810, the news headlines were read again, then back into Swahili.

Like a thumb piano, not sure if that's the correct name for the darn
thing, but that's what I've called 'em for years!

Propagation is quite poor today. The only thing heard on the frequency were
the distinctive time pips and some adjacent channel QRM.
