I am picking up French speaking radio or TV on 7.20500 using my FILs long-wire  and 43 ft vertical.  Sounds like a call-in radio show.

My French is not good enough to know the subject matter, but they are not talking about cooking.

Or... could it be that they don't speak English yet?

Radio France Internationale is on 7205 in French, between 2000 and 2200 UTC.  They're one of the few remaining European SW broadcasters with a decent sized presence on the bands.

Since they're beaming to Africa, that's a pretty good catch in the middle of the afternoon in the US.

Thank you.  That is good to know.
