now I know what is the difference. As I wrote in my previous mail, today (18
DEC) I had the best signal of Vanuatu 4960 kHz in my life. Enzio writes the
same. But at me the signal was still very week, I could recognize talk and
music (and IS too), not the language (sounded French).

What happened? There were no exceptional changes in geomagnetic indexes
these days.
