I've been keeping an eye on 9810 as well, and not a trace of anything for
over a year now.  Kiribati was a relatively easy catch on the west coast,
with often good signals during our evenings.  A few months back, they were
reported back on by someone in Europe, I believe, but when I checked, all I
heard was the BBC in Arabic.  The transmitter is very unique, and is
difficult to miss when it's on.  They had a technical problem which was to
have been fixed a while back, but so far, nothing.  Perhaps someone closer
can contact them and find out what's going on.
