Here are some logs from the November 23/November 24 huge caribbean opening. I'm not even reporting the "regular ones" wich I was hearing every night this week, like RVC-530, Cuba-1180 and 60 et al, but instead reporting mostly the rare and new stuf, like Radio Reloj-570 seldom heard due to WSYR and the new jamaican and cuban stations as well as LOCAL-like receptions of Guadeloupe-640; here are the logs:
Reporter: Bogdan Chiochiu
QTH: Pierrefonds (Montreal area), Quebec, Canada
Equipment: Sanyo MCD-S830 portable with ferrite bar antenna
Note: All times are in UTC
550 UNITED STATES, Radio Disney outlet, NOV 24 0504 - with US and Latin music, such as Ricky Martin and Pink (Get The Party Started); //1560. Fair with CHLN nulled (Chiochiu-QC).
555 ST. KITS, ZIZ, Basse-Terre, NOV 24 0513 - bits of carribbean EE talk; very poor (Chiochiu-QC).
570 CUBA, CMDC, Radio Reloj, Pilon, NOV 24 0506 - News report about a cuban event to be hold on November 27, then RR code ID. Fair signal (Chiochiu-QC)
580 JAMAICA, RJR Galina, NOV 24 0440 - reggea music, no ID yet so presumed (Chiochiu-QC)
580 DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, NOV 24 0517 - tentative; briefly surfaced with meringue music (Chiochiu-QC)
640 GUADELOUPE, Radio Guadeloupe, Pointe-à-Pitre, NOV 24 0155 - french futboll commentaries (the last minutes of a futboll match, talk about improvements on local teams, etc...). Interview beetwen a Paris-accented and a creole accented speakers; mention of Radio Guadeloupe at 0158 and UTC-4 time check "ving-et-une heure cinquante-huit", then a DJ sayed they would relay France Info for "La Semaine Internationale" program by 22:00 (0200 UTC), then introduced into an english soca song. At 0200, France Info jingle then into nx reports about heavy rain, inondations and thunder-storms in the south-east of France. Excellent level at tune-in, but faded-down to only fair at 0159, with Cuba fading up in strenght. Also picked to very strong level at 0633 and 0716 (UTC) as well ! (Chiochiu-QC)
660 CUBA, CMHG Radio Progreso, Santa Clara, NOV 24 0513 - good over WFAN with old cuban instrumental music. Peaked over WFAN again around 0533 again with cuban vocals, //640 and 890. New! (Chiochiu-QC)
760 COLOMBIA, HJAJ, RCN Baranquilla, NOV 24 0523 - news discussion beetwen a man and a woman; poor signal. They used to be strong and regulars in the past.
They must use lower power these days (Chiochiu-QC)
