New Voice From The Pacific - Kiribati 1440

Actually not new - Kiribati's 846 kHz outlet has been heard here on a number of occasions. However, in 2008 the transmitter broke down after havning had serveral technical problems. On March 28 2011 Radio Kiribati started broadcasting on 1440 kHz, replacing 846.

To my surprise, Radio Kiribati was heard with a nice signal from 0929 UTC today, until sign-off at 0950, although with occasional interference from Japan. Nice ID at 0936. The MW band was exceptionally quiet at the time with very few stations audible.
