VANUATU
Cyclone Pam has destroyed much of Vanuatu's vital radio infrastructure.
All radio stations went off air when the cyclone hit. Most are yet to be restored although FM in Port Vila was restored on Sunday night.
Francis Herman, the ABC's programme manager for the Pacific Media Assistance Scheme, says many are now relying on the mobile phone networks.

[In an accompanying audio clip, Herman says there are no radio services on the air outside Port Vila. He says the priority is to restore services from the national broadcaster VBTC as soon as possible. Mediumwave transmitter masts in Port Vila and Santo were wrecked in the storm. FM antennas were "blown away". Shortwave broadcasts went off the air when a generator ran out of fuel.]

VATICAN / MONACO
It is now 2110 UTC 8/5/2007 and
Vatican Radio is still on 702 kHz most likely via MCO-tx. I heard french, english, spanish, arab and right now again Italian with SIO=2/3-4/3-3.
No trace of the german tx you hearing, only somekind of a Luxemburg-effect probably with high power MCO-longwave tx 216 kHz.
73's, Ehard Goddijn (8/5-2007)

Here at my place (50 kms north of the Danish/German border and Flensburg) I only hear NDR Info via the xmitter in Flensburg with some music underneath. Vatican Radio not listed on this frequency in the EWMG, neither in the WRTH 2007.
NEW frequency?
