PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 7324.94, Wantok Radio Light,
0740-0927, Jan 16. Started poor and slowly improved,
but never reached the level of steady readability; only
able to pick out a few words here and there. At times
hard to be positive of the language, due to Pidgin
using so many English words. The spoken modulation
seemed rather low, whereas the music was better.

0740-0800: DJ playing religious songs, along with messages & dedications.
0800-0810: News & weather in English (did not sound like NBC news?).
0810-0823: Religious songs (0815 ID).
0823: Announcer with brief religious spot in English.
0826-0835: More religious music (0829 ID).
0835-0855: Religious preaching in Pidgin/Tok Pisin.
0901-0903: Brief news in English; not the full NBC news that I often heard
in the past; followed my more music.
0934-0942: In English; unable to make out what he was talking about?

PAPUA NEW GUINEA. 7324.94, Wantok Radio Light. Jan 19 with decent signal strength 0813-0957, but with
moderately strong OTH radar QRM till that stopped at 0939*. Highlights:

0825-0845: Syndicated USA program "Fresh Touch"; preaching in English; ending the show with request for
listeners to write c/o "Wantok Radio Light, P.O. Box 1273, Port Moresby." http://www.freshtouch.org/ .

From 2011 till early 2015, this time slot was always taken by the programs of Dr. Tayo Adeyemi (New Wine
Church, England), but perhaps as he died in 2013, WRL finally decided to drop his shows and replace this time
period with the "Fresh Touch" program. Based upon my observations, believe the WRL website program schedule
has not been updated in a long time! http://www.wantokradio.org/radioprograms.html .

0845-0901: In Pidgin/Tok Pisin; ID, frequencies, time check, etc.

0901-0912: PNG bird call, into the NBC National News in English; item about mining in PNG.

0912: Sounded like the usual thank you announcement ("Wantok Radio Light Ministries thanks the National
Broadcasting Corporation for allowing us to relay the daily news bulletin. Join us at 7 AM for the next NBC
National News”).

0912-0913: advertisement for "NASFUND" savings, "Your Partner in Superannuation."

0933: In progress with the syndicated USA program "Focus on the Family"; interview with Mary Flo Ridley
about her books on parenting; presented with John Fuller and Jim Daly.

0954: Ending "Focus on the Family" with a promotional spot from their sponsor - "Ninety-Nine Ltd."

0957: CRI transmitter turned on, blocking WRL.

Sept 18 - Doing a pre-activation check for Wantok Radio Light (WRL). Yes, as 
usual CRI came on suddenly at *0957 UTC, on 7325 kHz., with a very strong
signal and went into Japanese. Here in California, WRL will need monitoring
before 0957, which was also the case in the past. Former WRL frequency
was 7324.94 kHz.
