Laser & Rainbow seems to be using this freq but very poor signal here compared with stronger 4025

Good question about connections betwwen R.Playback and PirateMusic. During R.Playback programme hosts and guests use sometimes Italian language. Also PM was connected somehow with Italy (eg. by relaying Italian station). So maybe indeed Playback and PM are the same station or closely connected???

Playback/Pirate Music: I doubt they use same transmitter. Have not heard Playback yet at home and Pirate Music was quite strong usually. Do not think propagation changed so dramatically.

Playback is relayed by Pirate Music. Heard them with a "thanks for relaying us" addressed to Pirate Music on thursday evening at 19.52 in their first live-programme (19-20 UTC). They have come in here with excellent signals every evening since wednesday. Have heard them all day long today sunday. Nice relay of KLIF Dallas on 1190 kHz at 15.00...

Signal about the same level here as Pirate Music so that figures.

There are some interesting stations around at the moment from outside the usual countries eg, Barratina from Spain, Spider from Greece and Playback from Italy?

Indeed so! And they are all very DX-friendly too. Barretina, Spider and Playback have all "QSlled" to me after newyear aswell as Latino on 7610 in december. Let´t hope this Queen continues this new Maditerranean trend...
This Cochiguaz could also be a very interesting thing if they get fixed the 25 mb transmitter in South America. On 6308,8 they come in with really strong signals here in Finland, so my wild guess is that they are relayed by someone here in the north ??
