3330 RWANDA: Rdif Rwandaise, Finally heard them at *0300 w/ French male ancr giving the time every minute just before the CHU ancr in English. The clocks over there must be broken, hi! (Bill Dernoff) You jerk! I've heard this several times, and it's Comoros drifting down from 3331. If you can't wait for an ID, stop reporting to this column! -ed

7120 HUNGARY: R Budapest 0300 into 'Hungarian History' pgm after apology for error last month. Appears that every time the word "Hungary" came up, the announcer misread it as "Baffin Island".

7175 USSR: R Moscow 0200 in Eng w/out Urdu lessons (Dillon Hollister) also in at 0315, but w/out used car ads (Bill Remus) Lately I've hrd them a couple of times here, but w/out a man reading seafood recipes -ed.
