** COLOMBIA? 4940, Sept 19 at 0245, good via TWR Bonaire SDR, anonymous missionary station with nice tropical music seemingly secular enough, but merely some relief as long-winded Spanish gospel huxter resumes at 0250 citing Ezekiel XL et al.

International radio stations now restricted on TuneIn

TuneIn has removed access for UK listeners to the majority of radio stations based outside the country due to licensing reasons.
