Monday Mutant 4: Process of Illumination (cipher)

Monday Mutants is a series in which I will attempt to experiment with "mutant" puzzles. These could be existing puzzle types with an unusual change in the rules, hybrids combining elements from multiple puzzle types, or puzzle types neither invented nor popularized by Nikoli.
In this Process of Illumination puzzle, the given numbers have been replaced by letters; all instances of a particular letter represent the same number, but two different letters must represent different numbers. The rules are otherwise unchanged.
Two Monday Mutants this week? Really? Yes. Expect more weeks like this whenever I feel that it is appropriate. :)

Only 4 letters this time, huh? A little tougher... and had some nice use of the same/different conditions.

Nice diversions. Thanks. Very much enjoyed the deciphering aspect on the second puzzle as Akari gets a bit dry. The GSPOT one was a bit too easy of a breakin, but it was nive to have a starter and then one with more challenge.

Thanks.
