4845.2 13/3 0117 Radio Cultura, Manaus, Brazil, concitaded religious talks. Fair
5950 13/3 0040 Bible Voice, relay in Germany, religious talks in slow English, over Family Radio, in English too. So something like a religious marmelade, with Bible voice dominant.
6134.8 13/3 0100-0113* Radio Santa Cruz, Bolivia, news. Also about tsunami in Japan, with info about the nuclear fears and Caritas helps. Better in LSB to avoid Radio Aparecida on 6135. Great ids at 0108 and 0109, then the usual Radio Santa Cruz song. Off at 0113. Fair
6165 13/3 R.D. Tchadienne, Chad. Long talks in French about Chad and Ndjamena social situation. Fair/good

11815 13/3 2010 Radio Brasil Central, sport live, good signal but QRM from BBC on 11810 and Riyadh 11820. In this situation SDR rx give better reception. With 51S-1 I got fair reception in LSB and moving the Rejection Tuning knob.
