Radio Nacional Archangel

Last night, Monday 23rd September I heard Radio Nacional Archangel, the
Southpole based Argentine station on the exact frequency of 15476 kHz.
The station was audible from 1911 UTC onwards after close-down of
Africa No.1, Gabon on 15475 kHz. Reception was weak but at times more or
less fair. No interference, but fading in and out. Spanish comments and
music by a female presenter giving Radio Nacional Archangel ID's a few
times. Just before 1945 UTC parts of an extensive ID was heard,
giving times and frequency ("... lunes a viernes ... quince mil
cuatrocientos setenta y ? ..."). That was followed by the "Don't Cry for
me Argentina" instrumental theme. Station signed off at 1945 UTC
exactly.

JRC NRD-525 receiver (ESKA modified), 25 m longwire and Yaesu FRT-7700
antennatuner.
