I keep forgetting to check what I can hear during the English sesquihour,
but here is another, from the MARE Tipsheet, Michigan:  Glenn

Egypt: 9895 Radio Cairo; 2116, 3/25; W in EE w/sked & pgm notes to 2118+
into music. S9-10 w/xmtr? hum & just a touch of distortion; easy copy.
Apparently new for A18; not listed in early March Aoki or EiBi
(Frodge-MI) [they fixed their transmitter? Be still my heart! -kvz]

The same result here, when checking the bands since 25th March. But there
is one report of the English transmission to Europe reported by Alan Roe:

R Cairo was being reported on a Facebook group (by Howard Parker in UK
and Jerry Thomas Meredith in US) yesterday (1 April) on 9800 in English
with a strong but badly distorted signal signing-off at 2245 UT.

 Egypt: Although the Egypt entry for summer 2018 already misses all the
frequencies inactive in summer 2007, I was unable to confirm
any of the frequencies listed by the HFCC
even less any audio. I wonder if Radio Cairo is gone on shortwave. (Dr
Hansjoerg Biener 1 April 2018 after an extensive monitoring project 30
and 31 April on Radio Cairo and other stations)
