Fairly good signal, SIO 344. This is a half-hour long transmission beamed to East Africa from Santa Maria di Galeria, which sadly contrasts with the one-time 15 minute broadcast that used to be on 19m at this time and frequency a few years ago. That one was a neat world news digest which was very high quality*, while the half hour programs are religiously oriented and are of less interest to me. Though I can tolerate this better than undead Brother Stair, hi hi.

* If it was a slow news day, they'd lead off with something about the Pope, always some activity of little importance but a good way of letting the world know that things were OK for the time being.
