Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio: February 18, 2016

Live, off-air, approximately three-hour-long recording of clandestine station Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio on 18 February 2016 beginning at 13:00 UTC on a shortwave frequency of 17840 kHz. This was one of four scheduled special election-day broadcasts from Uganda Diaspora P10 Radio. It was transmitted using a 250 kW sender at Nauen, Germany, with an antenna beam azimuth of 155°.   

The station is an outlet of Uganda Diaspora P10, an organization working for political change in Uganda and which supports the opposition politician Dr. Kizza Besigye. "P10" refers to the organizational power of each person enlisting 10 other people ("power to the power 10"). The recorded broadcast, in Swahili and English, was on election day in Uganda and included news about the election; voter instructions to ensure "no ... messing around with the vote"; and items, with music, about Dr. Besigye and the P10 movement. Much of the material was repeated in the three-hour broadcast. 

The broadcast was received by the Web-interface wideband software-defined radio at the University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands, with a "Mini-Whip" antenna in AM mode with 5.09 kHz RF filtering. Reception was fair with some noise. At around the 2h:30m mark in the recording, there is an audio feed problem at the transmitter site with a temporary switch to a broadcast from Adventist World Radio in Hindi. The problem was rectified a little over one minute later.
