I had the impression, that Florida was weaker than the days before, that
condx were better on the more northern paths. An exception was WEUV
1700, they had a great ID as WEUP at 0617 UTC, "booming in like a local"
as Finn would say.

Murphy's Law... I had WDCD fifteen minutes earlier, but phoned this
morning with Joachim Stiller. He was listening too, and he said, that he
had a spanish speaking station on 1540 too. Perhaps CHIN has Spanish at
that time? But the Radio Nacional ID speaks against this assumption.

Yes, me. :-) Indeed a very good morning, even the lower MW was good,
heard CJFX 580 loud at 0604. WTIC 1080 was dominating over the
co-channel Spaniards. 1160 KSL came through at 0610, but very heavy QRM
through Tay and others on 1161. 1500 WTOP and 1560 WQEW in armchair
listening quality. Alas, I couldn't hear anything under WTOP, neither
WLQV nor KSTP. The X-Band had the usual suspects, all with good signals.
