A station calling itself Radio Mada Internationale (but apparently not connected with the domestic station called Radio Mada that has been on the air since 1995) has begun daily broadcasts on shortwave. The station supports the deposed president Marc Ravalomanana. Broadcasts are scheduled at 0400-0430 and 1700-1730 UTC on 5895 kHz. There are also broadcasts every three hours from 0300 UTC on the website at The station is an initative of Tiako I Madagasikara (I Love Madagascar, TIM) which is a political party in Madagascar founded by a group of individuals on July 3, 2002 to support President Marc Ravalomanana. It is now the largest party in the National Assembly of Madagascar with 106 of 127 seats, after the parliamentary election held on September 23, 2007 (Source: Wikipedia).

The existence of this station was first reported by Glenn Hauser on the DX Listening Digest mailing list. The location of the transmitters is not yet known.
