EE.UU: Captaciones DX de Ralph Perry en Illinois.
DJIBOUTI: 4780, Djibouti *0300-0330+ 1/31, thanks to all who suggested this (Don, Fergy, others). Heard tonight from 0250 open carrier, orchl NA at 0300 f/by repeating IS of flute and what seemed like fiddle-type instrument. Into Islamic morning Call to Prayer at 0301.28-0317 (long form!). Then OM narration or news in AA to 0332, when mx show opened. Modern, western influenced, pop-sounding AA recording featuring organ, base, flute and mixed group of singers. S9+++ at 0335 tune out. (R Perry, Illinois)
COSTA RICA: 5954.24, Radio Republica, Guapiles. Turns out my unid indeed is Radio Republica, the station targeting bcsts to Cuba from xmtrs reportedly in Guapiles, Costa Rica. Heard 0236-0256 on 1/31, deep fades, and lucked out with nice recorded ID by YL at peak of fade cycle at 0238: "Esta es Radio Republica, La Voz del Pueblo . . . nuestro programa 'Sorprisa Musical' . . . la mejor de musica . . ." and then a snippet from Queen's "We Will Rock You" as part of the theme. Into program of hot merengue dance music and pops. At 0249 again, "....un lugar con la mejor de musica . . . Radio Republica . . .". At 0255, the sound of a fax machine and then words said in English, haltingly, "World Wide Web". Sig was on bottom of a fade cycle, but could hear a URL was being given, couldn't read it. Fqy anmt too, "en la banda de 49 metros". (R Perry, Illinois)
