Malta 999 kHz now 5 kW again

Good news for the friends of Radju Malta 93.7 FM.
The coverage of their AM relay on Bezbezija mountain range has now been improved.
We have recently had some problems with the transmitter, due to a lightning strike, and since we were off the air, we decided to do a more in-depth refurbishment on the transmitter. We are now running at 5kW

Before, it was only running at low power of 1 kW and did not succeed to conquer the stronger co-channels Saudi-Arabia, Italy, Spain and Pridnestrowie.
Now, chances to receive this interesting station have again improved.

I do not quite understand who they are targetting at, as 93.7 FM has a good coverage across the Island.
There are a few problems in the North and on Gozo / Comino, but this effects all of the FM operators.

Anyway, I am hoping this frequency will last long (certainly now they have chosen for maintanance instead of switching-off).
If Italy is closing down before Malta does, so it can be heard at daytime even in Southern Italy (now on Sicily only).
