Voice Of Nigeria Information

The following excerpt was posted on the Yahoo Shortwave Sites Group:

"And the current situation at the Abuja-Lugbe station in detail: One transmitter is tuned to 7255 kHz and connected with the formerly rotatable HP-RCA antenna. Another transmitter is tuned to 15120 kHz and connected with a fixed curtain. The third transmitters is being cannibalized for spare parts. The control system is long broken. No retuning of transmitters, no turning of the HP-RCA anymore."

The non-rotatable antenna (7255 kHz) is beamed at 280 deg. The fixed curtains are beamed at 0 and 285 deg.

I posted a VOAAREA plot last year in thread message #1035. It appears that the transmitters are not working to full performance.
