You may also be able to pick up some of the domestic services. Radio Orion, which went off shortwave last year, has been reactivated; try them in the North American evenings on 3230 if the utility QRM's not too loud. They broadcast in English. Also audible in the U.S. evening is Radio 2000, which has an easy-listening format in English and Afrikaans on 4810. At 0300, they switch over to Afrikaans Stereo, which is entirely in Afrikaans and has news, music and talk.
One of our regular net members, Al Quaglieri, writes the African Destinations column for the NASWA Journal. Al usually posts frequencies for Channel AFrica and the SABC domestic services when he gets the info. Keep an eye open for such postings so you'll get the latest information when the seasonal changes come.

I have checked the MT : SW schedule, and they are shown transmitting ti ho Africa only (unless I missed : something). As I recall, they used to transmit to NA quite a bit. : Since their longitude is about the same as Europe's, I would expect the : transmissions to occur some time in the evening, US time.
