Radio News in November 2006

Radio Shanasheel from Iraq on 1395 kHz mediumwave

Radio Shanasheel from Basra in Southern Iraq has been reported heard on 1395 kHz mediumwave. The station actually began broadcasting already in September 2005, but was not reported on the air before October 2006 by the BBC Monitoring Service. The independent private broadcaster is reportedly transmitting at 0400-2300 Universal time. Arabic-language programming is funded by the director of the Organization for Human Life, a non-governmental organization. According to BBC Monitoring, the name of the station "Shanasheel" (balcony) is derived from the architectural style of houses in southern Iraq, specifically those on the river banks in Basra. Radio Shanasheel can be contacted by email.
