Hi,

- R. Sugartown was of course R. Supersound. Free idea of ID for a station playing "sugar" songs !

- 6325 Unid, look for [You Tube R. ], sounded like another R.Tina alias

- "euro-song", "euro-singer": I mean Eurovision-like songs, singers from Greece, Italy, Spain...

- Cosmic R. logged again from Tuesday to Sunday

- a few mysterious low power signals, including on 41 and 76 m

A week with ups and down, including dipole down once again on Saturday, repaired same day
