NIGERIA   7254.939 kHz VoNigeria Abuja.

Ireland, Belgium and Riviera Italy, also to MA US state coast at 0810 UT on
Jan 23, as well as S=4-5 -103dBm 'in-land' in Bavaria Germany,

I couldn't understand NOTHING of the program, low level audio, I could only
recognize male/female voice this morning.

re Moldova two spurs, nothing noted today Jan 23 at 0840 UT.
I guess has something to to with harsh winter condition also on Balkan,
i.e. ICING on feederlines or antenna dipols ?
