88.40 Mhz unid Arabic or .... ?

Post by JohnM » 12 Jun 2017 20:49

Hello,

I received this one on 11th. June 2017 - 1742 utc on 88.40 Mhz during
Spor. Es to the Balkans and Greece.

It sounds arabic but maybe it is not !!

Here is the clip:

Anyone who recognize the language.

I don't think it is Arabic. It sounds most intriguing!

Hopefully someone else can help more.
Good DX.

That's an interesting one.

I can't offer much, but it does sound largely Arabic to me, but possibly with a Balkan 'twang' in there?

I am a bit further about the language, it is a mix of Arabic, Farsi and Turkey.

Remains the question from which country......

Could be Kurdish? - if so TRT has a Kurdish language station on 88.4. It would be worth listening to the station's live stream at the same time in the day to see if it is comparable. You can get it via FMLIst.

After reading John's info "a mix of Arabic, Farsi and Turkey" I also wondered the same thing. Apparently Kurdish is related to Farsi.
Good DX.

sorry, I am unable to open the file but reading about a mix of Arabic, Farsi and Turkish I suppose this is (T)Amazigh or Berber.

I am pretty sure this is Chaine 2 from Nador. they also broadcast in local Berber dialects.

here you can find an example of how that may sound (but be aware there are different dialects and the sound may vary)
