Mosquito Coast DX News

Mosquito Coast DX News - June 4 2016

Poor reception in late May and early June. Warm and humid with thunderstorms here. Continued work on antennas with trust in improving  conditions.

3289.95 Guyana, GBC Voice of Guyana 2230 with music fading in 2 June:
2330 om “…and all the music” …2332 “…no that is not the same”…” 2348
“…send this again” seems to fade up from 2330 some days 3 June (Wilkner)

4055 Guatemala, Radio Verdad with chorale music 2350 and om chat later
to 0000, surprisingly weak signal for this semi-local station. 3 June

4747.5 Perú Radio Huanta 2000 Huanta Ayacucho 2340 to 2355 om en
español, chat no music but CODAR on top mad listening unpleasant 3 June

4805 Brasil Radio Difusora do Amazonas, Manaus 2325 to 2335 long talk in
Portuguese by one announcer with weak alas steady signal 3 June (Wilkner)

4824.46t. Perú, La Voz de la Selva, Iquitos seemingly in Spanish with
weak signal. Weak but consistent signal 2330 to 2345 1st and 3rd of June

4949.71 Angola, Radio Nacional de Angola 2325 to 2340 recheck om in PT 3
June (Wilkner)

5910 Colombia Alcaraván Radio, Puerto Lleras 2330 to 2345 om with
religious messages “El Señor repeated..” good signal - 3 June (Wilkner)

6010 Colombia La Voz de tu Conciencia, Puerto Lleras presumed 2340 to
2350 en español, om but very distorted signal , over modulated 3 June

6190 La Voz Alegre (Mahajanga) 0217-0233 28 May. Inspirational chat &
many IDs w/ p-mail addr. in Ft. Lauderdale & Havana + thanks to
collaborators (including Florida National University--which I mis-IDed
as Florida "International" University a few weeks ago--oops). Nice to
have another entry in the Canadians/Christians/Commies crew on 49M. (Dan

6260 BVB (Tashkent) 1405-28* 27 May. Weak but clear with EG sermon
(depressing, but no yelling, so that's a plus). Closing with Newmarket,
ON p-mail addr. & for emails. (Dan Sheedy)

9680 Unid, Voice of Hope, Lusaka, Zambia, suspected, 0150, a weak but
steady carrier and occasional traces of a threshold level signal were
about all I could get here, but given the absence of any competition for
the freq I do suspect it is the Zambian. If I had gotten here about 50
minutes sooner it may have been much better, but this was a little late
for that far east in Africa. (May 24, 2016) XM

ML pops & "warta berita dari Limbang.." @ :58. TC @ 1400 & news from
RTM-Kuching studios (or that's what the announcement sounded like) until
