KTWG Hagåtña, Guam-801 KHz
When examining the Afedri recordings from the Smelror DX-session last weekend (and beleive me, I’ve got plenty of them), I found a strong station on 801 KHz, playing non-stop religious contemporary music at around 14:50 UTC, October 5. At the full hour I got the ID “You’re listening to […] KTWG, Hagåtña, Guam”, followed by some information about the upcoming programmes that day.
I immedeately prepared an audio clip of the ID and e-mailed it to the station, and after just 3,5 hours I got answer from miss Leilani Dahilig, who writes:
Or perhaps I should say “Hafa Adai!”, which is our local greeting. I am very pleased to be able to confirm your recption of our signal at KTWG – AM800. I enjoyed listening to the recording you sent with your email and once again as in other reported recptions of us, I am surprised to hear how well the signal sounds, especially considering the distance and ‘urban noise’ as you put it!
Thanks for reporting your reception of KTWG and perhaps you’ll catch us again sometime! Blessings to you, sir!

The audio clip of KTWG is found here.
Now, continuing with examining the Afedri recordings. I’m finished in a day or two, and will get back to you soon.
