Radio Benue, Makurdi, Nigeria on 918 khz was heard at 1900 UTC on the 5th July at Fish Hoek via the Sony SRF-M37V and 220 metre BOG.

Radio Benue Director of Administration & Finance, Espie Adzape kindly verified my reception report with a recent friendly email :

Nice to hear from you. Your report is correct. we broadcast on 918 khz and 95 mhz FM and our sub station at Idekpa. The reception report is cheering news because our radial wires were recently vandalized so we are unsure of our present reach. It is heart warning to know that we can still be heard far away. Somebody wrote in from Russia as well. Look forward to more communication with you. My regards, Espei Adzape.


Station Identification in English was included in the following announcement which preceded a local newscast at 1900 UTC on the 5th July 2010 :

" ... 8 'o clock ... This is the combined service of Radio Benue. You can listen to this broadcast on 95 megahertz FM, 918 kHz mediumwave band or our local sub station ... "
