Altho 6180 is VG, it`s still not as strong as Vietnam/Sackville 6175, but enough to require sidetuning 6185 XEPPM to 6186 or 6187 to avoid most of it. Still, it`s a lot better than a co-channel collision on 6185 (of course, after 0300, CRI/Sackville is on the other side, 6190, so forget about any Radio Education until 0600, or rather 0620 when Vatican gets off 6185).
Finally at 0317 the live event is over, a new day has begun and usual glib overnite DJ starts `Madrugada Nacional`; it`s still going on both frequencies at 0330, but both cut off circa 0332 or 0333, presumably to return by 0800 latest, while continuing on MW 980 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** CHINA [and non]. Firedrake March 1:
12670, very poor at 1232; no others 9-18 MHz by 1236
17570, poor at 1420, with some CCI from presumed V. of Tibet via Madagascar; no others (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** COSTA RICA. 11815.247, March 1 at 1439, REE Cariari relay is unusually off-frequency, causing het to NHK direct 11815, about equally weak. This measurement is based on matching pitch with B below middle C on a keyboard, whose frequency per
is approximately 247 Hz based on A = 440. // 9765 and 15170 were very slightly off compared to neighbors but nothing like this (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** INDONESIA [and non]. 9526-, March 1 at 1455, VOI fair with vocal music until cut off at 1456:48*, almost a minute before CRI cut on 9525.0 at *1457:42 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** MAURITANIA [and non]. 7245, March 1 at 0623, IGIM is already on and chanting; 7250 Vatican barely audible after 0629 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
** ROMANIA. 7265, March 1 at 0624, very poor signal seems French, presumably RRI`s 0600 broadcast; reception from Europe at this hour on this band has really degraded, as recently I could not hear 7265 at all (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
