Central Asian music on 1449 khz




distinct Turkestan-style music (lute, oud) at 1715 utc on 1449 khz  under RAI, sometimes dominant for a brief spell.

News at 1730, defiitely not Arabic, a bit too weak to decide between Farsi and Turkmen.

99% chance for IRIB Bandar Torkomen near the Caspian Sea in Iranian Turkmenistan.


Arabic channel on 1161 khz same time could be IRIB in Arabic or Egypt.
