249.535 middle east/asian fm via satcom

Check it out if you can tune these freqs

The broadcast day is rather distinctive with 2 periods of activity alternating with blank carrier
One period of broadcasting starts 0800 UTC.

Its a muslim country but not an Arab one
I’m thinking afg/pak/bgd.

I’ve ordered wrth 2019 to check broadcast schedules of likely countries.

Direction is south east and its got to be coming off the Indian Ocean satellite

While you’re listening perhaps you can help me id 255.776 too ;-)
