0301- 3287.7- MADAGASCAR- Radio Madagasikara, Antanarivo (tentative
only),  0301-0315 April 12, low level talk by man in unID lang to 0305, 
then into music/vocal. Talk again at 0315 but almost faded out. Poor
with RTTY sometimes covering and squeezed between ute carrier on 3986.4
and Namibia on 3289.95. This precise frequency and fade pattern suggests
Madagascar; 5009.6 was silent so no possibiity for establishing a
parallel. ---CLARK,  Thornhill, Ontario

0305- 3215- MADAGASCAR- AWR, Talata Volondry,  0305-0329 April 10, first
noted with bits of spiritual vocals & some talk, mostly by woman in 
presumed Malagasy, poking thru WWCR talk pgme 'Wellness Matters' tuned
in USB mode. Detected up to 0329:45 when WWCR switched to fanfare  intro
to next pgme segment and unhrd thereafter.  *  April 11  much better
from *0300:10 with clear AWR IS tune 'Lift Up the Trumpet' played twice
to 0300:40, EE ID by man "This is Adventist World Radio, The Voice of
Hope...Adventist World Radio...", slightly different version of the IS
melody with opening anmt by woman in lang to 0301:30, talk by the woman
to 0302:30, then into spiritual by female vocalist. Ideal timing
relative to 0259 xmtr SR;  weaker by 0315+. Surprised at how well this
pushed thru WWCR sideband for 7.5 kW but the slow drone of the same
'Wellness Matters' pgme host made it possible. The modified Siemens
communications transmitter used by AWR may be operating USB + carrier
since it was readily detectable in USB mode but I could not hear it in
LSB. ---CLARK,  Thornhill, Ontario
