Radio Tamazuj begins test transmissions to Sudan

A new radio initiative of Free Press Unlimited has started test transmissions today. Radio Tamazuj will carry special programming for people in the conflict areas between North and South Sudan, such as Abyei, Blue Nile and South Kordofan. Tamazuj means "across the border". Since November 2011 they have produced half an hour per week within the Radio Dabanga time slot. But from 5 January, 2012 they will produce half an hour a day from 0400-0430 UTC before the existing Radio Dabanga transmissions. Until that time test transmissions, which started today, will be broadcast at 0400-0430 UTC on 7315 (Issoudun), 11940 (Madagascar) and 13800 (Dhabbaya) kHz. Reception reports are welcomed via We really would welcome reception reports from within Sudan! A website will be launched shortly at (RNW Programme Distribution)
