loggings in order of  time;  frequencies in kHz;  times UTC;  
ham codes as usual;  Reporting  signal quality: Loc  = local 
signal; E = excellent; G = good;  F = fair; P = poor; 
VP = very poor;  A = avoid.  (also in SINPO or SIO code)

1)  The last famous words....despite I stated to be really busy cause
very hard studying of management, executive skill programs etc. stages,
I have found time for radiolistening and TFW. Thanks for studying
itself, I am utilizing some techniques for using time successfully. 
Please, do not consider my last message: radiolistening is stronger than
me ! (hi !) 

2) Cause some problems with Italia On Line Pop Mail Client, may be some
e-mails of yours were lost into cyberspace, and you could not find some
tips of yours on this TFW issue. I apologize for this inconvenience.  

3)  I hope to have no DX problems at my new apartment (an attic), only
two blocks away from my parent's home where I am living now till next
springtime: no space problem for antenna.  As I found a world map, some
(may be) old rare QSL cards and some coax cables etc,  I was amazed to
see that it belonged to a Radio Ham, unfortunately died some years ago.

4) As usual, during Christmas Holidays (around 20 December 97 till 6
January 98 here in Italy) I have to suspend DX-ing here at my present
QTH, cause Christmas intermittent lights with no filters and
interferring with radiolistening
(continuous...tzzak...tzzak...tzzak...). May be I ll go for few days to
my summer QTH in Anzio with Sony ICF 2001 D during next Seasonal
Holidays. TFW On Line will be e-mailed regularly.  Thanks again for
continuing to e-mail your contributions. ' 73 and good DX, Gianni Serra,
TFW & TFW On Line editor

is exceptionally challenging, in fact, the only time I've ever been able
to was about 20 years ago from California around mid-December when a
grayline path enhanced reception. Even at that, it was no powerhouse.

name, etc. Anmnt at 1043 "(TC) en su programa amaneciendo(?)...R.
Difusora para donde(?) Huarmaca ...manana...casa en...amor...", and also
ment of Francisco ? and Huancavelica. Clear signal. Freq doesn't vary a
hair. Set radio in time mode to 7205.66 and that's exactly where the stn
signed on!! Pretty unusual for an OA. Even better signal the next day;
stronger and clear. ---VALKO, USA 11 Nov.

1042- 4571.1- PERU- R. Gotos del Oro (fqy var), 1042, End of campo song,
W anncr w/ID and tlk, ment of Cerro de Pasco, and another ID, back to
mx. Fair. Freq highly variable as usual. ---VALKO,  USA 14 Nov.) 

1051- 7205.66- PERU- R. ??, 1051-1125, Tnx Bob Hill tip!!  Pgm called
"Buenos Dias Sur Mano(?) Camposino"; nice OA campo mx, Huaynos
included!!  M anncr between songs w/TCs, pgm name, and ID at 1101. 
Played a very slow instru. version of "El Condor Pasa" at 1055-1057. 
1055 anmnt ment of pgm name sev. times. 1101 anmnt sounded like this
"...(time)  su programa "Buenos Dias Sur Mano(?)
Camposino"...camposinos...Radio(?) Huarmaca, Radio Corazon(?), a radio
vida el servicio del pueblo...".  I'm not 100% sure of the mention of
"radio" before Huarmaca or "Corazon", or the "Sur Mano" in the pgm name,
but that's what it sounds like.  Long tlk 1104-1110 but it faded at this
time plus there was presumably a Ham tuning up as well.  Stayed in
weakly past 1125 when I gave up.  Freq steady.  Fairly decent signal
prior to fade around 1105.  If this stays in, I'm sure it will be IDed
quickly.  Hrd on 10 Nov.  Tnx again Bob!! (Valko, USA) --- Checked out
this Peruvian again this morning (11 / 11).  Set the NRD-535D and the
recorder to turn on at 1000 in hopes of catching this one signing on.
Fortunately the station was again right on 7205.66 and I got it on
tape.  I don't know the exact time but it did sign on with the OA NA
around 1030. The ID sound like "Radio Difusora para donde Huarmaca". 
The only part I'm not sure of is the "para donde".  The sign on ID
announcement mentions "nuevo" a couple times so I presume its a new
station.  Was coming in pretty well.  Will listen to the full tape
tonight.  Thanks again to the old 49 meter sleuth Bob Hill!! ---VALKO,
