EE.UU: DX LOGS - Ralph Perry - 12 Feb

CHAD - 6165, Radiodiffusion Nationale Tchadienne, N'djamena, good signal 2150-2215 2/7, pleasant African rhythms to 2200 nx and commentary show in FF by OM, with remote feeds by YL and others. Gone at 2245 recheck. Slated to s/off daily 2230* except weekends when it runs to 2300*. (R Perry, Illinois)

ECUADOR - 4814.98, R. El Buen Pastor, 1050-1110, decent signal and in the clear on 2/5 (ute missing) but noisy. Upbeat nondescript music to 1052 when quick theme burst and OM on top, "Radio El Buen Pastor, nuestro programa esta manana . . ." t/ck and fqy quote. Into what sounded like brief rlg tlk, mtning "El Senor . . . Dios . . ." and then MOR orchls at 1102 with another ID over. (R Perry, Illinois)

INDIA - 6155, Bangalore, noting this 2/10 and 2/11 with good signal and in the clear, early local evenings. A bit unusual to hear the subcontinent in Illinois at this time, although a darkness short path exists. On 2/11, fqy clear when carrier switched on 0012 and 0015 YL abruptly speaking. Believe this is the Urdu domestic service. 0015.30, chanting by OM, sound like Islamic call to prayer (interesting to hear this on an India xmtr, but a reminder that about 15% of Bangalore population is indeed Muslim). 0021 OM in Urdu and then into subcontinental music. YL singer with subcontinental combo featuring sitar, tabla, etc. Segued to 0029 t/o. Same pattern pgming heard prior day, when noting call to prayer already in progress at 0018, the 0021 anmt and then into Hindi music. Nice signal and just a lot of fun to hear this. Armchair level signal at the top of fade-ins. (R Perry, Illinois).

GUYANA - GBS Georgetown noted 0920 past 0950 2/12, deep fades, OM ancr in EE with instl mx. (R Perry, Illinois)

BRAZIL - 4885, R. Clube do Para, best signal in the band 0935 on 2/12, booming in at 0935 with OM ancr in P giving ID ("Radio Clube do Para, muito bom dia! . . . na faixa de 60 metros . . ." and fqy quote over musical backdrop. Same day, at 0940 on 4915 Anhanguera presumed, OM PP tlk and mx, but lower sig. Also an unid Brazilian on 4865 at 1015. (R Perry, Illinois)

CHINA - 6030, China National Radio 1, fine signal 1305 2/12 with what sounded a lot like a Lion Dance performance with clanging symbols, drumming. Into local folk music by small band with local kazoo-like horns, drumming, etc. Seemed live performance. Wonderful listening, nice to play inthe background while typing, etc. (R Perry, Illinois)
