Mauretania - 7245 Nouakchott, best and nearly only decent signal on the 41 mb on 6/15 at 0748 GMT. Nice local, atonal plucked stringed instrumentals and regional choral selections. 0756 OM in animated FF anmts. 0758 xylo-like IS and then string instl solo. At 0801 a nice ID as "Ici Nouakchott . . . radiodifusion . . ." Then into a nx pgm in FF by OM and YL team, but with field correspondents phoning in, mostly in AA. 0806 starting to fade with growing local daylight there. 0809 news show ending and tuned out 0811 as signal taking a dive. Also heard 0605 6/19 but lower QSA, prior to likely peak a little later. OM chanting Qu'ran. This always a fun station for me to hear, as once was one of the last West Africans heard when I was a beginning DXer l. . . Mauretania, along with Niger, were always such a late s/on's! Think they used to be *0700 . . . (R Perry, Illinois)
