*** Monday edition:
*** Recording of Radio Libertad, unknown QTH (Perú)

I have had this "Radio Libertad" with unknown QTH several times on this ID-site (see "Archive" 9/7 and 15/7 2004). I´m checking the frequency almost every morning hoping the DJ someday will have the QTH in the ID.

The two dominating stations are HJMT RCN, San Gil and HJKR R. María, SF de Bogotá so without my MFJ-1025 Phaser it´s difficult. "Región de Cajamarca" or "Región de (La) Libertad"? The station starts 1000 UTC and has a program in Quechua 11-1130 UTC. Jingels "La nueva generación" and "La radio del Pueblo". After 1100 UTC it´s impossible because of Radiodifusoras Marañon, Quito.

Distorted sound from the DJs mic but the music is OK.

*** Recording of 4460.95 CPN Radio, unknown QTH (Perú)

I have never noted any "CPN Radio" before on the frequency but this saturday morning the normal CPN Radio programming: news and weather.The listed station Radio Nor Andina, Celendín has been inactive for a long time, 6-12 mponths or so. 3 weeks ago I noted a Peruvian on the frequncy with music and talk but very low modulated signal nd I presumed it was a reactivation of Nor Andina. Nor Andina with relay of CPN or something new?

*** Recording of HCAD2 Radio LV del Triunfo, El Triunfo

There has been a discussion on the "Conexión Digital" mailinglist about "La Cariñosa", Medellín on 1550 kHz and I was trying to make a recording of the station but instead I logged for the first time the Ecuadorian station "Radio LV del Triunfo" with very good signal strength. Modern, polular LA music up to close down 0300 UTC. Also english/american music. "El Triunfo" is a small town in the "Guayas" province.

*** Recording of 4874.78 kHz R. Difusora de Roraima, Boa Vista

It´s a pleasure listening to Brasilian stations, they normally have good sound quality, now whwn the Peruvians are disappearing (Radio Ilucán and others) or having technical problems with low modulation etc (Radio Atlántida and others). R. Difusora de Roraima, Boa Vista is a very regular station.

"Boa Vista is located on the Amazon jungle an at the edge of the Branco river, the city has large avenues and is arborous.

The local culture is strongly influenced by the presence of several Indian tribes on the region. About 200 thousand inhabitants live there. Boa Vista has the road BR-174, which connects Manaus to Venezuela.

The capital of the Roraima State, beside being a planned and modern city, was Boa Vista founded on the XIX century, when the settling near the seat of Fazenda Boa Vista (Boa Vista Farm) was considered as a village. On the creation of the Federal Territory of Boa Vista, dismembered from the Amazonas State, Boa Vista became the a capital".

*** Recording of HCR1 Nueva Emisora Central, Quito

When our local telephone company "AndinaTel" needed my name on a contract to get ADSL/broadband internet conection they came to our house the same day. When we needed help to change ADSL to another telephone number this big company arrived 9 days later, reason why I have not been updating this site for a while. From today this web ID-site will be operating, I hope, with full power. One more thing: excuse me if I do not answer your mails for a while - more than 500 mails are waiting in my in-box.......

*** Recording of 4939.68 kHz R.Amazonas, Puerto Ayacucho

The only Venezuelan station left on the tropical bands. Good reception here in Quito with the high A-index we have had lately. Listen to this very thypical Venezuelan "sound".

73s Bjorn Malm

4939.68 R.Amazonas, Puerto Ayacucho (Venezuela). 1040 UTC. 01/2005.
The station has a little bit distorted sound.

"Puerto Ayacucho is the state capital. With a population of 74,000, it is home to nearly 93% of the region’s population. Located about 70km south of the convergence of the Orinoco and the Meta, the town has the only overland link with Amazonas and is the commercial hub of the region. The capital, together with the town of Samariapo, was established in 1924 to provide a road bypass for the treacherous Maripure rapids on the Orinoco. This road, which marks the division between the upper and lower Orinoco, was an essential connection in the transport of goods up and down the river. The town, isolated bar a single dirt track running north, remained little more than a link in the chain. However, in 1980, the road was paved and river transport replaced with overland transport, bringing prosperity to the town and transforming it into the commercial center it is today".

*** Comments from Takayuki Inoue Nozaki "Radio Huamachuco 860 kHz"

I have received two very nice mails from two well known DXers: Max van Arnhem from The Netherlands and Takayuki Inoue Nozaki from Japan. Both have comments regarding two recordings I have presented on this ID-page. Thank you very much Max and Takayuki!

73s Bjorn Malm

La Exitosa, Panamá 1270 kHz
Listen to my recording here!

See "Arcive 28/11 2004"

Max van Arnhem (The Netherlands):
"Dear Bjorn, While browsing on your site, I found your audio-file and question about La Existosa, Panama on 1270 khz.

In august 1986 I was in Panama City and heard La Exitosa on 740 khz. In the WRTH1986 I find this station indeed listed as La Existosa 740 khz, while 1270 is listed as Radio Feminina, Panama. In the WRTH2004 740 is listed as La Exitosa (not Existosa) de Chorrea.

I heard on your audio file the announcement of 930 and 1270 AM. In the WRTH 2004, 930 is listed as La Nueva Exitosa de Panama. In the WRTH2000, 930 is listed as CMQ La Chorrera, however reported on 740; 1270 is listed as CMQ Panama. 740, 930 and 1270 have the same address in Panama City.

So, there must be some link between these stations on 740, 930 and 1270. Quite a strange story, but my attention was attracted because of La Exi(s)tosa, of which I knew I heard it while in Panama 73s".

Takayuki Inoue Nozaki (Japan) Editor of RELÁMPAGO DX:
"Dear Mr. Malm! It is the first time to visit your site and it is very interesting for LA-DX lovers. Checking some audio clip, I noted the following unid station and got its identification.

The following identification was copied by hearing the recording of an unid station.

"Atención la hora, atención la hora, Huamachuco transmite para todos ustedes en 860 kHz onda media en amplitud modulada. Atención 7 de la mañana, 7 de la mañana con 25 minutos, 7 y 25 minutos en todo el territorio nacional. Señoras y señores ... la hora informa Radio Huamachuco en 860 kHz onda media en ....."

It is very interesting to know that Radio Huamachuco moved from 910 kHz to 860 kHz by hearing the tape. I remember that the station was on the air on a measured frequency of 909.8 kHz on mediumwave as of October of 2001 when I visited Huamachuco to investigate the two local shortwave broadcasting stations which formerly transmitted on shortwave.

Recently I visited Huancayo, Huancavelica, Pampas, La Oroya and Jauja to visit some local stations. It was the 3rd visit to Huancayo, hi".

*** Recording of 1330.10 Radio Visión Cristiana Internacional, Quito

This sunday morning I talked to the station by telephone 2 565756:

"Radio Visión Cristiana Internacional" is the new name for "Radio Misión Cristiana Internacional" (MCI Radio), Quito, Ecuador. (listen to recording with their old name here!).

"Radio Visión......" (U.S.A.) some years ago bought "Radio Sideral", Quito(Ecuador) but was unable to use their name for legal reasons and during this period they were using the name "Misión......"(not in // with Radio Visión......). Just some months ago they received their licence and now has the same name as their "parent" station "Radio Visión......".

The station here in Quito will soon start their new programming: transmissions in // with the other "Radio Visión......" stations but also 7 hours/day with local programs.

"Radio Visión Cristiana Internacional", is now also the new name for the sister station "Radio Misión Cristiana Internacional"(MCI Radio), Cuenca (Ecuador)(1330.00 kHz).

This station is not listed, at least not in WRTH 2004 but is listed on he stations web-page.

This is a little bit "complicated":

1330.10 kHz
Radio Mision Cristiana Internacional, Quito (Ecuador)
Also ID as "M.C.I. Radio". This station is never talking about "R. Vision Cristiana Internacional" and is not transmitting in // with R. Visi0n. Some years ago they bought Radio Sideral, Quito on around 1329.85 kHz. The station was transmitting more than one year without listeners, almost without any audio. Fixed the problem and has now good signal and sound quality on 1330.10 kHz. I talked to the station when they started but I have lost their telephone number and is not registred by "AndinaTel". What I should like to know is: Who is the owner of "M.C.I. Radio" Quito.

1330 kHz:
Radio Vision Cristiana Internacional, Quito (Ecuador)

This station is not listed in WRTH 2004 but is listed on the web-page of Radio Vision. I have never heard this station. The QUito-station I´m hearing is "M.C.I. Radio - R. Mision Cristiana Internacional".

1330 kHz:
Radio Mision Cristiana Internacional, Cuenca (Ecuador)
Is listed in WRTH 2004 but I´m not sure if the station exist. I have never logged this station.

1330 kHz:
Radio Vision Cristiana Internacional, Cuenca (Ecuador)
This station is not listed in WRTH 2004 but is listed on the web-page of Radio Vision. I have had for some time a "Radio Vision Cristiana Internacional" on 1330.00 kHz with sometimes very good signal. The loggings I have seen are reporting Radio Vision Cristiana Internacional, Santiago (Dominican Republic).

But I was confused by TCs from "New York", "El Caribe" and........"Ecuador"! After listening some weeks I finally have the proof, it´s not Dominican Republic or New Jersey (both listed on 1330 kHz as R. Vision Cristiana Internacional) but Cuenca, Ecuador! Listen to my recording.

More about my unID LA on 4864.96 kHz:
After reading the mail from Ignacio Sotomayor I now remember that a DXer from USA some months ago sent me a recording of an unID LA on the 60mb(not 4864 khz) and on his recording I heard the ID "HCJB Radio Internacional".

So the station on 4864.96 is buying programs from Luis Palau, HCJB and this friday morning I had an ID from "Radio Trans Mundial"

. Ignacio Sotomayor thinks the ID is: "Más.... Más lejos. Somos.....HCJB Radio Internacional. Inter...recisamente". Also Christer Brunstrom, Sweden says the ID probably is "Radio Internacional". Thanks Ignacio and Christer for your mails!

73s Bjorn Malm

Ignacio Sotomayor:

"Hola Bjorn: He estado escuchando durante muchas veces el archivo de audio y siempre he oído lo mismo: "Más.... Más lejos. Somos.....HJCB Radio Internacional. Inter... precisamente". No tiene mucho sentido pero esto es lo que me ha parecido escuchar. Un saludo".

*** Recording of 6895.20 Radio San Miguel de El Faique (Henrik Klemetz)
*** Comments from Henrik Klemetz

My unID LA on 4864.97 kHz:

First some lines regarding my unID LA on 4864.97 kHz(see 4/1 2005). Christer Brunstrom(Sweden) says in a mail that he last night 2230 UTC heard a station on 4864.81 kHz with ID: "Centenario - la tuya". This means that my unID LA station on 4864.96 +- 1/100 is not the Bolivian station "Centenario", that´s to say if the station is not drifting. The ID I´m hearing is(with many ???): "Somos....HJK_ Radio Inter.....". I heard the station also this thursday morning without ID and close down 1100 UTC.

I have been waiting for the opportunity to make a new recording of the unID Peruvian station on 6329.11 kHz with my new Ten-Tec DSP reciver. When active the station was on air just weekends but I have not heard them for some weeks now.

Henrik Klemetz has sent me a recording from 1998 of 6895.20 Radio San Miguel de El Faique, this to compare the two names "Faique" and "Sallique". The name of my unID Peruvian(see "Archive" 30/11 2004) on 6329.11 is probably "LV de Sallique"(???) but here below you yourself can compare the two names. Thanks Henrik!

6895.20 Radio San Miguel de El Faique, Huancabamba, Piura(Perú). 01/2005.
Recording from 1998 made by Henrik Klemetz. The station has been inactive for a long time.

"Sallique" or "Faique"?
6329.11 unID Peruvian "Radio LV de (Sallique?)", unknown QTH(Peru). 11/2004.
Recording I made last year in november wih my old receiver.

6329.10 kHz Here you can listen to my first recording of this unID Peruvian from 26/3. You can clearly her dpto "Cajamarca".

Henrik Klemetz: "Several pieces of evidence are needed for an ID:
1) Phonetically there is a noticeable difference between "Sallique" [sah-YEE-keh] and "Faique" [FY-keh]. On the other hand, it is hard to distinguish between "S" and "F" under noisy circumstances.
2) In addition, one has to determine how many syllables there are in the word,
3) where the word stress is and,
4) how to render what you are hearing in writing.
5) The identification will remain uncertain unless you have the "departamento" (and/or "provincia"),
6) Go to a map to see if the place is big enough as to sustain a radio station.

*** Wednesday edition:
*** Recording of 44485.95 kHz Radio Frecuencia VH, Celendin

There has always been a group of three Peruvians close together here and actiuve all the time all three. Frecuencia VH is still active but 4420 R. Bambamarca, Bambamarca and 4461 R. Nor Andina, Celendín are both inactive

I already have this station on the list, made with analog recorder and my old receiver so why not a new recording with digital recorder and my new DSP receiver Ten-Tec RX 350D. Funny things re happening in the studio of Frecuencia VH - listen!

Quito 4/1 2005

*** Tuesday edition:
*** Recording of unID LA 4864.96 kHz

Some years ago I logged "Centenario La Nueva", Santa Cruz (Bolivia) on 4864.95 kHz. 3-4 weeks ago I heard a spanish speaking religious station on 4864.96 kHz but with very weak signal. This tuesday morning the station was there again with better signal and with religious program.

I need help with the ID. It sounds like 4 call-letters at second "44": "HJK_" but I´m not sure. Colombia? You can listen to the ID beetween seond "31" and second "50".

Is it Centenario or is it Colombia?
