INTERNATIONAL DX NEWS

NETHERLANDS Haagstad Radio from Den Haag, a Hindo station, is now active on 1485 kHz. 
The transmitter power is 1 kw. (Ruud Vos via Hard-Core-DX).

PERU Radio Huanta 2000 has returned to 4747.5 after a stay on 4756v. The station was
noted in New Zealand with long string of ads in both Spanish and Quechua on 21st July, 
at 1000. (Paul Ormandy, Oamaru, New Zealand)

SOMALIA A number of unidentified stations, probably of Somali origin, are currently 
being heard here in Taranto (South of Italy) on the frequencies of 6689, 6980 and 6985 
kHz. To learn more about these operations we asked to Mahendra Vaghjee who lives on 
the Mauritius to investigate: Here are the results:
6689 [6690 v] Is Radio Mogadishu Voice of the People S.on at 15.00 with N.A then 
Recital of Koran followed by Talk on Religious and Islam 15.30 ID followed by Somali
Songs 18.00-18.15 (Usually it was 19.00-19.15) in English - Id as Radio Mogadishu - 
Voice of the people the Military Band tune (*) 18.15-18.30 Arabic then at 18.30-18.45 
Swahili  went off at 19.00 (usually it was 20.00) after Recital of Koran - and N.A.  
also went on at 04.00.
7060 R.Mogadishu - V.O.P in Swahili not the same programme as 6690 s.on at 16.00 with
