Iran’s broadcasting monopoly IRIB has recently installed a slick new interface for accessing its radio and TV live online streams. These have long been available but what’s new is that now they can all be accessed via a single page at http://live.irib.ir, with buttons on the top right-hand corner of the page giving options for radio or TV streams categorised into national (Radios Iran, Farhang, Javan etc), provincial and external services. The embedded player works very smoothly – life has just become a little easier for mediumwave dxers trying to pin down which of IRIB’s many MW transmitters they’re listening to!

Ein Korrespondent schreibt mir:
“Here is a little update from Israel.
Galey Zahal is not using anymore MW frequencies, unfortunately only FM.”
Dann wäre 945 und 1368 kHz nun also auch off-air, so wie 1224 und 1305.
