Subject: Re: [WOR] Solomon Islands on air now, 0713, 08-08, with extended
program on 9545 instead of 5020
August 11 observations
*Radio Congo* , on 6115, suddenly came on at *0538 UT; already in progress;
usual kalimba music at 0545. Since their recent reactivation, reception has
been very decent (better than in the past!).
*SIBC* , not on the usual 9545, from checking 0435+, to 0500, but later at
0620,heard definite carrier on 5020,so assume SIBC. Recently rather erratic!
*Radio Vanuatu[non-log]* , checking 7260, from 0515 to 0559, with no signal;
after 0601+, had no carrier on 2485, 3945, 5040 (Cuba had already signed
off, so a clear frequency with no carrier at all), 7890 (H) and 11835 (H)
(CNR2 off after the 0600* time pips, so Wednesday remains the only day that
they are off the air 06-09 UT).
RV recently not heard!
