Radio Damascus in Syria

Radio Damascus in Syria is still putting out a signal that they hope reaches all over the world (a 2011 QSL card is pictured above). It is interesting to tune in to hear what they are saying about the continued unrest there, although it is of course the  government view.

You can hear English from 2100 to 2200 UTC daily in 9330kHz. In fact if you tune to this, their solitary frequency, from 1600 to 2300 UTC you can hear all their language broadcasts by the hour, starting with Turkish at 1600 UTC which is followed by Russian at 1700, German at 1800, French at 1900, English at 2100 and Spanish at 2200 UTC.

If you want to write to them or listen online the station web address is Will there be some major changes at the station and in the country of Syria itself in 2012?
