This station should be returning to regular programming on 26 September according to online schedule on their website.
Perhaps they may be testing before hand this weekend?

Spirit Radio have reappeared on 549khz, it is been a few days since I checked last so not sure when they switched on again. It will be interesting to see how long they last this time on MW.

I have just seen this report from within Russia, but the link doesn’t work for me,

From September 2, 2022, the St. Petersburg RC branch of the RTRS restores the broadcast of Radio Maria in St. Petersburg on a frequency of 1.053 MHz and Vyborg at 92.6 MHz. The temporary suspension of the broadcast until September 2 was based on the customer’s decision.

TWR 1539,5 ?

Today at 1830 UTC I was able to follow the start of a TWR transmission on 1539.45 kHz here in Salzburg. At the start of the programme the well-known TWR IS was played, also at 18.45 UT. The programme could be heard until 19 UT. What is being mixed together here?

XECCAK-1370 Huamantla, Tlaxcala, Mexico claims to have signed on the air yesterday, 8/13/2022, only a few months after being granted their CP. I do not know that they are actually on the air. They have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lamaspeligros) but it references a web site (peligrosa.mx) that doesn’t exist. 1370 is a wide-open frequency in Mexico nowadays (and not bad in the western US, as long as KGNO isn’t running day rig all night) so potentially an excellent target. Daytime power is 5kW. As usual, we don’t know the nighttime power.
