5952.42  Radio Pio Doce, at 0131-0156 and 0209-0230.* Pop Latin American songs. Brief sports coverage with sound of the crowd in the background, noted 0228 usual sign off format with very distinctive whistling "Colonel Bogey March" (commonly known as the River Kwai March); along with clear station IDs. Chime signals till off. Even with the normal summertime static-had very respectable reception. This sign off format is still one of my favorites.

6024.95  Presumed Red Patria Nueva with actual audio, which is a rare event for me;. Normally only an open carrier can be heard here. Noted at 0232-0239 with easy-listening pop songs. Poor signal.

6134.82  Radio Santa Cruz went off at 0204*, after playing their usual "Santa Cruz" song, not as strong as Radio Pio Doce (Ron Howard, Pacific Grove, CA-USA, DXplorer via wwdxc BC-DX TopNews)
