AWR Wavescan, produced by Dr. Adrian Peterson and hosted by Jeff White,  highlighted an excerpt from Radrio Habana Cuba on the passing of Fidel Castro, then announced the results of the last AWR/Wavescan Contest.  After JSWC DX Report, Jeff White followed with a report on the "QSL Letter of the Week" from Detroit. Afterwards, the Miami group Aden performed "Noche de Paz" (Silent Night), followed by contact details for WRMI and AWR/Wavescan. The programme closed with an old WNYW interval and tagged WRMI station ID. This is apropos, considering WRMI, WFYR and WNYW have an interrelated history. This content was noted from 23.15 till 23.30 UTC. QSL arrived in the mail on 20 January 2017.

JSWC (Japan Short Wave Club) DX Report, featured during the AWR Wavescan programme and hosted by Yukiko Tsuji, announced the special broadcast for the DSCI (Danish Shortwave Club International) schedule via WRMI and SLBC (Sri Lanka), then shortwave logs from JSWC members, i.e. Vatican Radio, RHC, Brazil, were mentioned, and finally Yukiko announced JSWC QSL and contact  details. This content was observed from 23.20 till 23.25 UTC. QSL arrived on 9 January 2017.

Frequencia al Dia, a Spanish language DX programme, presented by Dino Bloise, began at 23.30 UTC. One of his reports dealt with La Historia de Radio Antillas, a bit of music and more DX news was heard until atmospheric noise degraded signal to just barely audible content. After 23.45 UTC, transmission disappeared under noise. QSL card arrived in the mail on 16 March 2017.
