testing from Pago Pago
near Pago Pago, American Samoa is now conducting tests on
585 kHz with 5 kW power. Official sign-on date is April
I've asked the acting station manager, Vickie Haleck for
precise dates and times for tests as well as an address

Peru, back on 6725v kHz
SatÚlite from Santa Cruz, Per˙, is back again. Heard 17 March
2002 between 0015-0110, drifting from 6725.65 to 6725.82 kHz.
The station disappeared for several years from the sw bands
and returned now on its old frequency 6725.7v. Until 1996
R SatÚlite was to be heard almost every night, usually with
quite good signal.
Unfortunately the present reception quality cannot be compared
to the good signal some years ago. Obviously the transmitting
power has been decreased drastically. The next disappointment:
the program. Nothing of nice Peruvian music, only religious
