Educational broadcaster Radio Bana observed on 5100 kHz at 1455 on Jan 30. Vernacular language programming was observed at tune-in, followed at 1458 by English programme, ‘Academia,’ which was a profile of Nelson Mandela. Program concluded with the following announcement:
Radio Bana is set to announce two new programs in English, as well as new times for our existing prgms, ‘Academia’ and ‘Eritrean Teachers Forum.’ The new programmes are: ‘Focus on English,’ to practice English skills, and ‘Teaching World,’ a program for teachers in Eritrea. Both these programmes include materials from the BBC. So, from Monday the 5th of February, you can listen to one of our four radio programmes in English every evening from seven till seven-thirty [local time, equivalent to 1600-1630 UTC]. We are also broadcasting on a new SW test frequency 5.1 MHz, in addition to our regular MW frequency of 1089 kHz. Remember to listen at seven every evening.
Radio Bana (Dawn) is operated by the Eritrean Government, with programmes in English and local languages, produced by the Adult Education and Media Department of the Ministry of Education.”
