Third AIR Station Received in Poipu, Hawaii

     Thanks to C.K. Raman on Real DX for identifying the Tamil language used by the lady in this recording of 720-AIR from Chennai (Madras), India at 1640 UTC on November 5th on the beach at Poipu, Hawaii  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/bdv9fc99v6ih97c03bwv0kyl09bxxjlg

This was the third Indian MW station received during the recent Hawaii trip, with file review still continuing. 918-AIR in Suratgarh and 927-AIR in Visakhapatnam were received using the "English news switchover" trick at 1530 UTC every morning, which works if the propagation is great, and the Chinese and Japanese on the frequencies aren't too strong. 720-AIR was "on the radar screen," though, having been noted with South Asian music on the waterfront of Hong Kong last April (before the tear gas started flying)
