Logs from Sri Lanka

Kohima almost on the border of Burma, today came on at 1200 4850 kHz of course with beautiful choral singing.

Gangtok: 1200 Station ID and frequency announcements including MW by YL into beautiful flutes chanting and fanfare with a lovely signal today on 4835 followed by chanting type Buddhist temple singing. at 1215 about 4 minutes of what appeared to be news in Tibetan. Sikkhim has a fairly large Tibetan population but the dominant race is Nepali I believe. Fine reception before Mumbai comes on nearby 1230 UTC 5 kHz up.

BRAZIL: 6010 Radio Inconfidencia 0101 announcements and jingles in Brazilian Portuguese.

CUBA:1210 note long path Habana over the Pacific on 11705 equal strength with VOA Net P. Carrying Spanish programmes. Is this a relay of RN Venezuela?

6000 kHz English news at 0100, mixing with an Afghan Service, surely now Kabul though its one of their old old frequencies. Give me a day or to to verify!!

Radio Rebelde in Spanish at 0110 fading out on 5025, with enough hash from AIR Thiruwanathapuram.

Rx: Icom R71A with 80 metre dipole.
