Radio Blandengue has  answered all the correspondence received through our correspondents, if some listener doesn't receive answer in the course of next weeks, we regret to inform him that your letter never arrived to our hands. Along this  year we have had the experience that many of the letters sent to the maildrop of Argentina were never given  and therefore it didn't arrive at our offices, according to the information given by our correspondent the same  one it has been stolen, therefore this address will be eliminated definitively, for this means we will be  informing which will be our new address apart from the existent one in Canada the one that usually works and  without any inconvenience. There are some programs taken place previously at the moment that they are emitting in Europe or that they will be re transmitted for our relays in some of those which the address of the maildrop service of Argentina is announced, we will thank them not to send any correspondence there since  the most probable thing is that it never arrives at our offices, ALL DIRECTED CORRESPONDENCE TO RADIO BLANDENGUE will be sent to the following postal address:  R.B. BOX 293 Merlon, Ontario N0P  1W0  CANADA.

0000- 7169.7- UNID-  UnID R. 0000/1200 Am hearing a very weak signal both mornings and evenings here with Oriental  music but no readable speech. Might be Xizang PBS, but it's extremely tough to ID because of constant QRM from stations occupying 7170 at various  times of day. (Hill, USA )-
0000- 7415- TAJIKISTAN- Radio Free Asia, Dushanbe 12/128, 00:00, announcing Lao service, a few minutes of programming, than suddenly off. Tibetan service listed here untill 00.00 UTC. Laotian should be on 7495 kHz from this site. Estimated SINPO was 35344. Presumably they made the switch to 7495 a couple of minutes too late. (I couldn't check, because most of my nighttime monitoring is unmanned. I'm deep asleep and check the wavfiles next morning).WBCQ seems to be off the air, no trace of them here. (Schaay, The Netherlands)
0001- 7415- USA- WBCQ, Kennebunk, 14/12, 00:01, sung ID, talk about Clinton impeachment. SINPO 35344.
