5020 SIBC Honiara on May 12. Heard this morning from 1132 to 1204* UT with rather good signals (improving due to dawn enhancement). Noted with news at 1132 UT, followed with a variety program, with one selection by Amy Cross (C&W Ballad) .TC at 1155 UT, then Religious Sermon by preacher with rather dubious "Hell and Brimstone" scriptures. Closing announcements, nice ID for SIBC and then National Anthem played to 1204* UT. Best heard on the 31/60 meter Trap-sloper.
