WDJD testing from Pago Pago
WDJD near Pago Pago, American Samoa is now conducting tests on 585 kHz with 5 kW power. Official sign-on date is April 13.
I've asked the acting station manager, Vickie Haleck for precise dates and times for tests as well as an address for DX reports. The station is DX friendly, wants reports.
Programs are 70 percent English and 30 percent Samoan. ID slogan is "for you and your family, 585 AM WDJD".

Radio Satélite, Peru, back on 6725v kHz
Radio SatÚlite from Santa Cruz, Per˙, is back again. Heard 17 March 2002 between 0015-0110, drifting from 6725.65 to 6725.82 kHz.
The station disappeared for several years from the sw bands and returned now on its old frequency 6725.7v. Until 1996 R SatÚlite was to be heard almost every night, usually with quite good signal.
Unfortunately the present reception quality cannot be compared to the good signal some years ago. Obviously the transmitting power has been decreased drastically. The next disappointment: the program. Nothing of nice Peruvian music, only religious stuff.

Mega signals on 1575 kHz
Megaradio states that first tests of the new 500 kW transmitter on Burg 1575 (so far running 10 kW only) can be expected within the next days.
Contrary to previous information 1575 will run high power for 24 hours.
All other own frequencies (576, 630, 693, 738, 1116, 1431) will stay on 24 hours, too, at least for the time being.

World's distress channel -- and its own little pirate radio station of weirdness and pain.

Richard Stallman’s Crusade for Free Software is also a fight for freedom of expression and freedom of information -- something HCDX fully support.
