US EC-130's Broadcasting to IRAQ
Wednesday 12/18/02

On Monday (12/16/02) EC-130's started dropping leaflets to advertise "Information Radio" can be heard from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., at five frequencies.

The broadcasts of Arabic music and anti-Saddam messages have begun said Pentagon spokesman Lt. Daniel D. Hetlage. But the program only became known Monday when the Central Command said it had dropped 480,000 leaflets over the southern no-fly zone in Iraq, including some alerting the Iraqis to radio frequencies and times to tune in to the American broadcasts.

The times of these broadcasts are 1500 - 2000 UTC (1800-2300 Hrs Local Iraq Time)

You should have no problem receiving these broadcasts. When the EC-130 was broadcasting propaganda during the early parts of the Afgan war Commando Solo broadcasts were received very well at my location (Daytona Beach, FL).
