*** Recording of "La Cariñosa", Cadena Democrácia (Bjorn Malm)
*** Recording of "Radio Democrácia", Cadena Democrácia (Bjorn Malm)

"Cadena Democrácia" here in Quito has been transmitting many years on mediumwave 1280 kHz. The 1st of August this year they moved to 920 kHz. The station has very good audio quality and their "Genial FM" has the best sound among the FM stations in Quito.

The station has 2 different IDs. On their talk programs, news and sports the ID is "Radio(Cadena) Democrácia" or "Cadena Democrácia". On music programs with or without DJ the ID is "La Cariñosa".

Quito has a very advancded system of "electrical" buses called "Trole Bus". At least 2-3 times every week I take the "Trole" and 30 minutes later I´m walking araound in the center of the town "Centro Histórico" with many, many old and beautiful buildings. The two photos are from this "Centro Histórico" and later on I will have more pictures from this part of Quito.

*** Comments from Daniel Camporini

Our friend from Buenos Aires, Argentina Daniel Camporini has sent me another recording of a station you can not find on shortwave now adays: Radio La Crónica de Lima 9515 Khz. I have never logged the station so it is a pleasure having Daniel on this ID-page. The recording is from year 1970. Thanks Daniel!

Without your own recordings of LA stations this ID page is nothing! 73s Bjorn Malm

Daniel Camporini: "De las ya desaparecidas emisoras peruanas. OAX4J 9515 Khz Radio La Crónica de Lima. Esta era una emisora que llegaba con bastante claridad alla por 1970 (que es el año de esta grabación) en la banda de 31 metros y segun el membrete de su carta su potencia era de 5 Kw, en la onda media operaba en los OAX4I 1320 Khz con 10 Kw.

After reading information from Klemetz on the (excellent) mailinglist "Conexión Digital" about changes on 830 kHz I checked the frequency - I made a recording of new "Radio Reloj", Medellín - before "LV de Antioquia", Medellín.

"La Voz de Antioquia is a slogan not to be heard again, says a newspaper report from Medellín. Here is an almost 30-year-old recording of an intro to a sports program on La Voz de Antioquia. At this time Antonio Pardo García, present-day Network Program Manager, was in charge of sports. There is also a plug for Chocolate Lúker, chocolate sold in bars, that antioqueños take in liquid form for breakfast together with their corn cakes (arepas), beans and bacon. I recorded this portion on 750 kHz from where they later moved to 830. In the meantime, 830 had been housing Radio Visión and Radio Deportes. Radio Visión was once an independent operation and active also on sw 6105 where it was well heard in Europe /Henrik".

Unidentified LA probably Peru

Friday evening beetween 0220 - 0300 UTC I listened to a LA spanishspeaking station, probably Peru, on 5119.51 kHz. Radio La Hora, Cusco on 4855 kHz is known as a "spur" station. I have logged these spurs on 5062.35 and 4960.45 kHz but I have never heard a spur from Radio La Hora in the evening, just mornings and never with this strength. Further more it does not sounds like Radio La Hora.

Good sound quality but after 0225 something happened to the transmitter/studio and it was very difficult to hear what the male DJ was saying. Close down with ID and 3 frequencys at 0300 UTC: 94.5, 1400 and a frequency in the 60 meter bnd. Is it "La Hora", is it Ondas del Suroriente or is it.....? Listen to my recording and tell me your opinion!

Rogildo F. Aragão, Quillacollo(Bolivia) has in his QTH the same unID LA as I have here in Quito(see 19/7 morning edition). Rogildo has sent me his recording from this monday morning. When I listened this morning they were talking much about schools, education and so on. Anyone knows if teachers in Peru are on strike? If so, where in Peru?

I have also received an email from Rafael Rodriguez, Colombia.

Rogildo F. Aragão: "Malm, Retiro mi email anterior. Esta mañana 1050UTC, escuche con señal regular en 5062.3 una Radio con transmision en español, locutora entrevista algun representante publico o comunitario. Hablaran comunidad Huancapamba?, Quillomapao y tambien del departamento de Cuzco, espere una ID, pero a las 1057 el transmisor fue apagado. Seguire escuchando esta noche y mañana, buscado algo que pueda tener la ID. 73, QRV"

Bjorn: Thanks Rogildo for recording and comments. I just have the station in the mornings and with fading. I will try again tomorrow.

Rafael Rodriguez via Conexión Digital: "Hola Colega Malm! Como se alcanza a escuchar en el audio, Radio Morena el proximo sabado 24 de julio estara celebrando su 9o aniversario y anuncia una espectacular serie de eventos en vivio desde su Radioteatro. Esta es una emisora que regularmente llega hasta mi QTH, y aunque no me ha confirmado, el colega Yimber Gavira desde Cali me informo haber escuchado la lectura de mi carta al aire. De otro lado el sabado en la noche tuve una buena apertura a emisoras del Ecuador, le pido el favor de confirmarme si el QTH de Radio El Sol que figura en el WRTH 2004 es correcta??"

Bjorn: Gracias Rafael. Supongo que me hables sobre HCCE1 R. El Sol, Quito. Si, QTH es Quito y la dirección en WRTH es la dirección yo obtuve cuando hace un año por WRTH hablé con todas las emisoras Quiteñas. Radio El Sol tiene casi siempre una programación de deportes/fútbol. Radio Morena es la emisora más fuerte de las emisoras de Guayaquil aqui en Quito. Además HCXY1 R. Nal. del Ecuador, Quito no está en el aire siempre, algo que permite Morena ocupar la frecuencia.

Better signal this Monday morning from my unID LA on 5062.34 kHz. Rogildo Aragão, Bolivia, is thinking of South Ecuador or North Peru and Christer Brunstroms, Sweden, guess is Peru. My own guess after listening to the station this morning is Peru.

I have received two mails from Ted Sloan and Daniel Camporoni.

Daniel Camporini: "Hola Bojrn, lamento haberme equivocado con el correo electronico de Radio Illimani, el correcto es: illimani@comunica.gov.bo Ademas la emisora me comento que ha incrementado la potencia de sus transmisores de onda media, corta y frecuencia modulada, pero sin indicarme cual es la nueva potencia de los mismos. Su aniversario 71 se cumplio el pasado 15 de julio. El incremento de potencia en los 6025 Khz. se nota pues la señal es clara y estable durante toda la noche y no la interfieren sus canales adyacentes como Radio Marti que aqui es potente. Un abrazo y nuevamente mis disculpas. 73's".

Bjorn: Thanks Daniel. I have sent an email to Radio Illimani using the adress in your mail but so far I have not received any answer.

Ted Sloan: "Bjorn, thank you for the superb audio clips of LA radio stations. It was wonderful to hear them with such clarity. I have long since stopped Tropical Band DX-ing but often yearn to take up the hobby again. My last time was in 1971. I then moved house, a young family came along and I chose the easier route of ham radio !! DX-ing is still in my heart but at 66 years of age I do not think I will be going back. I still have the QSLs and ( I think ) the pennants to remind me of very happy days. Enjoy your wonderful hobby. Ted Sloan (I4AHP) ex-member of SWB ( Goteborg - Red.: Gote Johannsen )".

Bjorn: hanks Ted for very nice mail. What I´m hoping is that this ID-page will inspire you to be a "reactivated" DXer and others to be new, active DXers. I´m enjoying this hobby even more now working with my "ID page".

*** Recording of Radio Illimani
*** New recording of Radio Libertad, unknown QTH

Amigos DXistas! I hope you do not mind sometimes listening to "DX" signals: narrow bandwith, weak signal, interference from other stations, thunderstorms and electrical noise. This is the "normal" life for a dedicated DXer - it´s much more thrilling going for the weak signals and not for the super-powers. So this time 2 audioclips with some "problems" but in my next edition of "Voces de América Latina" you can listen to some better recordings, it´s promise!

Radio Illimani says in a letter to the swedish DXer Jan Edh that they apreciate recordings from their transmissions on 6025 kHz. Yesterday morning wednesday I made a recording of Radio Illimani and of course I will inform the station. The signail is fair to good but suffers from heavy intrference from both sides: 6030 Radio Martí and 6020 Radio Victoria.

I could not make any ID out of Björn`s recording; when they give the address I don`t think it starts with the station name, but the street name. I went to the INDOTEL website where Resolutions are published authorizing new radio stations, http://www.indotel.org.do/Site/Marco_Legal/consejo/Resoluciones_2003/ and bingo, there it was under 2003 12 de mayo: Resolución 053-03 Que asigna de manera provisional a la Sociedad Salesiana de la Iglesia Católica la frecuencia 1640 KHZ para la operación de la estación Radio Juventus - Don Bosco, en la ciudad de Santo Somingo. This links to a 5-page PDF will all the details; power is 1 kW day, 500 watts night; they had 3 months from the date of the resolution to build the station, and the license period was only one year from the same date, but we are past that now. http://www.indotel.org.do/Site/Marco_Legal/consejo/Resoluciones_2003/Resolucion_053-03.pdf

Thanks Daniel! 73s Bjorn

Daniel Camporini: "Como estas Bjorn, espero que bien. Respondiendo a tus preguntas te comento que yo grabo las emisoras desde 1965 apróximadamente, eso a resultas de mis estudios de periodismo. En aquellos años la unica manera de estar al tanto de la actualidad internacional era a travéz de la onda corta. Lamentablemente en esa epoca yo empleaba un grabador de cinta abierta marca "Geloso" colocando el microfono delante del parlante de una radio Philco 857 valvular (que aún conservo y uso a veces) que cubría todas las bandas de radiodifusión...las tecnicas han cambiado algo hoy!!!!

Recién a comienzos de los 70's pude emplear un grabador de casette "Toshiba" que hizo que la calidad mejorara. Especificamente la grabación de Radio Tawantinsuyo, como te decía en el mail, es de 1978, uno de los mejores años en mi opinion para escuchar radio, cuando operaba en los 6175 Khz. con una claridad asombrosa en ocaciones, y como esta hay muchas otras de Bolivia, Ecuador, Brasil, Uruguay, etc. Para fines de los 60's era muy facil escuchar onda media de Europa tan solo empleando el ferrite que traía incorporado el receptor, ya que en las radios valvulares este era de grandes dimensiones y bastaba con hacer girar la radio. Otro detalle es que en esa epoca las radios de onda media de Buenos Aires no transmitian las 24 horas y despues de la medianoche muchas frecuencias quedaban libres. Espero haber aclarado tus dudas amigo Bjorn y estoy siempre a tu disposicion. 73's".
