New Radio Malaysia ID's observed on shortwave

5964.90v, “Radio Malaysia Klasik Nasional” via RTM, 1313-1346, June 15. Noted a series of their new IDs: “Radio Malaysia Klasik Nasional”. Formerly was just “Klasik Nasional”. Their singing jingle is still the usual “Klasik Nasional”, but maybe that will also eventually be updated. In vernacular; DJ with pop songs; fair. Dan Sheedy (So. Calif.) first heard these new IDs on June 11 and 12, being used on just "Radio Malaysia-Traxx FM” (7295) and “Radio Malaysia-Wai FM” (7270) and he noted they were not yet used on Asyik FM nor Klasik Nasional, so seems they are implementing the new IDs in stages. Certainly worth more monitoring (Ron Howard, CA/Cumbre DX)
