Dear Don & Ruud and other "Guatemala hunters"

Please also realize that R. Mam, 4825, irregularly operates well beyond its 
official s/off time. On January 25 of this year I heard them at 03.00 with a 
smashing signal. To ID I made a long recording of Marimba music, in arm-chair 
quality. Finally got my ID. Station still going strong at around 05.00.

Just this week I logged them again beyond their scheduled s/off time, December 
17, 01.55. Signal was marginal (SIO 232). I do not know if their extended 
schedules correspond to holidays or something, or just are "irregular" (and 
therefore unpredictable).
Anyway, keep an open ear for R. Mam, also beyond midnight UTC.
