   a      WRTH lists many more stations in Santiago, La Vega 
          and, especially, Puerto Plata which I feel I would 
          have heard if the stations had been active. I did 
          check every 10 kHz-channel, and every one with 
          discernable audio is noted here.
   b      Disappeared (off air) 1927-1944, 1946-... 
   c      Open carrier at 1835, later with rock mx
   d      850 // 860. The only ID heard was garbled, but the 
          station's name sounded like only one syllable, not the 
          two syllables of "Clarin"
   e      WRTH says this is inactive
   f      IDed as "HIVP" without mention of "Radio Olimpica"
   g      IDed as "Radio Hit"
