6878 28/1 0205 Radio Planet FM, id in Italian: "Alla consolle di Radio Planet FM...", and in English "You are listening to Radio Planet FM". House music "House party". It is the same tx of Power FM that I reported in December... no doubt because the spectrum. Strong signal, perfect modulation. Still on air on 29/1 0145 with Planet Night".

9599,26 29/1 & 1/2 2208-2223 Radio UNAM, Mexico. First it was a tentative because I didn't hear any id, I listened to it again and I can say it is UNAM. Seriuos classical music, at 2220 talks by woman but with low modulation, not usable, fading down at 2221. At 2226 music again with slow deep fading. At 2308 better signal, talks by man in Spanish, cultural serious matters. But at 2312 QRM from 9600 kHz. Later music again, better at 2344 in narrow LSB. It was always serious music. At 0000 talks man & woman for some minutes and music again. Later very weak, and around 0100 it disappeared. The exact frequency seems to be 9599,257
