Henrik Klemetz (Sweden):
"Hi Björn: Sounds like Radio Regional, don´t you think?".

Levi P. Iversen (PY):
"Para mi que dice radio "excepcional" o "ex-nacional" ???? 73's".

Henrik Klemetz (Sweden):
"I do not think it´s Regional nor Cristal. Regional is mentioned at the very end, a nivel regional, and the beginning, just as Levi suggests, it´s Radio Excepcional. An exceptional name it is".

José Elias Diaz (Venezuela):
"En esta grabación yo entiendo que dicen: Este es el programa Amanecer Campesino 100% musica folklorica. Radio Oriental.......la radio que hoy está".

Rubén G. Margenet (Argentina):
"Hola Björn: Yo escucho claramente el nombre del programa: "Amanecer Campesino"". Respecto al nombre de la emisora alcanzo a entender: Radio Regional la radio que hoy está ....(se corta abruptamente el audio). Luego en el slogan final vuelve a mencionar la palabra Regional. En ninguna publicación aparece 2640 Khz ¿No será segunda armónica de la fundamental 1320 Khz?... Un abrazo".

This monday morning I heard an unID Peruvian station on 2640.04 kHz with good strength. Music program called "Amanecer Campesino", some of the music from the Cajamarca area. The ID sounds like "Radio Internacional" - at least the name ends with ".....nal".

*** Recording of HJEW Radio Reloj, Cali, Valle de Cauca 1110.00 kHz

I do not remember having an ID for "Caracol" on this ID page. There are many "Radio Reloj" stations in Colombia and often it is very difficult to get a local ID but HJEW is an exception - often local programs with IDs. On this recording you hear the local "big" Caracol ID and the local news program "¿Cómo amaneció Cali?". Radio Reloj is a part of Caracol.

*** Wednesday Edition:
*** Recording of R. Cultural Coatán, San Sebastián 4779.98 kHz

I can not think of any LA country more "super-religious" than Guatemala, I´m thinking of their radio stations. R. Cultural Coatán is a nice station with religious music and talk 90% but sometimes with greetings and other types of music. I spent 6 months in Antígua, Guatemala 1993 and one of my strongest memories is their beautiful, colorful clothes.

*** Tuesday Edition:
*** Recotrding of Radio Naylamp, Lambayeque 3168.29 kHz

Radio Naylamp with better sound quality on new frequency, normally this irregular station has very distorted signal.

I first thought it was Radio Municipal drifting from 3172.69 kHz but after non-stop Huayno-music without any talk 25 minutes their female DJ gave an ID with jingel: "Radio Naylamp - la diferente".

Naylamp is drifting around on mediumwave, I have logged them around 1575-1585 kHz.

*** Recording of XERF La Poderosa, Cd.Acuña

To be honest, I thought I was dreaming. Last night around 0400 UTC I was listening to a station on MW 1570 kHz, I stayed on the frequency listening to my great favorite, the Méxican singer Marco Antonio Solís and a few moments later ID for my first Méxicn station logged on mediumwave here in Quito: XERF La Poderosa, Cd.Acuña! An ID with everything, call letters, adress etc.

I have been waiting for this moment here in Quito 7 years. In Sweden I had to wait 30(!) years for my first MW Méxican station.

*** Monday evening edition:
*** Recording of 3449.76 LV de Riobamba

Thunderstorm interference, electrical noise and a DJ microphone with distorted sound, well it´s not easy but this time another DJ, with another microphone, came with the station ID and I was able to do a decent recording of La Voz de Riobamba. The name of the town is San Pedro de Riobamba but normally they are using just "Riobamba".

Riobamba is the capital of Chimborazo Province, in the Chambo River Valley in the Andes Mountains, near the mountain Chimborazo and was completely destroyed by earthquake in 1797.

Further more Riobamba is my wifes birth town and I have spent many months in this charming town(around 100 000 inhabitants). Not charming in every aspect, they have water in their houses just beetween 07-0900, 12-1330 and 19-2030.........

Harmonic from 1150 kHz. Is also on their 2nd harmonic 2299.84 kHz but with weaker signal. 3449.76 has recently been logged by Dave Walko(U.S.A.).

I have been trying hard to hear Riobamba on mediumwave but it´s very difficult and the shortwave station, I think they were on 5010 kHz, "Escuelas Radiofónicas Populares" (E.R.P.E.) was closed a long time ago by the militarys. The only possibility to present a recording seems to be of LV de Riobamba, Radio Central and Radio Calidad - all harmonics from Riobamba mediumwave stations.

*** Recording of 1070.00 HCJ5 Radio LV de Tomebamba, Cuenca

The most beautiful city in Ecuador, together with my own home-town Quito, is Cuenca. I have been there just two times, 12 hours with bus from Quito, and it is a great pleasure walking around looking at all old and beautifull buildings.

1070 kHz is of course dominated by HCVP1 R. Libertad, Quito and if the station sometimes is off air 3 Colombian stations are dominating the frequency 90%: HJAH Em. Atlántico, Barranquilla, HJCG R. Santa Fé, SF de Bogotá and HJVR R. Super, Popayán.

Yesterday I was lucky and made a recording of the Ecuadorian station HCJ5 Radio LV de Tomebamba, Cuenca. Libertad off 30 minutes and not a trace of the three Colombian stations.

What is difficult with listening to harmonics here in Quito is problems with thunderstorm interference, locl electrical interference, fading and weak signals. Sometimes all these problems at the same time and making a recording is impossible.

Radio Panzenú has been auduble the latest 3-4 days with thunderstorm interference and fair signal so here is the first harmonic recording presented on this ID page for a long time made this wednesday morning.

*** Recording of Radio Cosmopolita, Ambato (Henrik Klemetz)
*** Comments from Henrik Klemetz

As Henrik writes: this is gret stuff! I have never heard before of this Ecuadorian station on shortwave. The recording is from 1984, today there is a station listed for Ambato on 1550 kHz called HCEI6 Radio Montalvo. If this is Radio Cosmopolita with new name I do not know.

Thanks Henrik for a very interesting recording! 73s Bjorn Malm.

Henrik Klemetz:
"Arguably the first Radio Cosmopolita on shortwave was a station in Ambato operating on shortwave 6195 kHz and 1550 kHz mediumwave. In 1984, when I was in Ambato, the shortwave operation was already off the air. The station used to carry uninterrupted son and rumba selections between 6 and 7 am, local time, much needed as the mornings were chilly. Announced temperature at 7 am was 8 degrees centigrade. Great stuff but muffled audio".

*** Thursday edition
*** Recording of Radio Cosmopolita, Quito

Some years ago I reported a new Ecuadorian station on shortwave: Radio Cosmopolita, Quito. The station was transmitting just some months on 5900/5905 kHz SSB, heard in the Scandinavian countries.

The biggest indian community in Ecuador is in the "Chimborazo" province with the capital Riobamba, my wifes birthtown. The indian community here in Quito had contact with their friends in Riobamba via a shortwave transmitter on 5900 kHz. The same program on Radio Cosmopolita 960 kHz in Quito, Radio Cosmopolita 5900 kHz in Quito and on a FM transmitter in Riobamba "Chimborazo 98.1". So 5900 kHz was a link beetween Quito and Riobamba.

Radio Cosmopolita 960 kHz is the only station in Quito with indian, Quichua programs. Most of the time religious program with music and greetings.

Yesterday 2/9 I reported an unID LA spanish speaking on 4845.06 kHz. The station is on air every morning and every evening with nonstop LA music without any "talking".

The station came in this friday evening with much better signal strength and this time I heard the DJ saying at every full hour 0000, 0100 and at close down 0200 UTC just one word. Perhaps the name of a FM station or the name of a program.

Listen to this ID(?) between the two songs on my recording.

Good signal strength, good sound quality and perhaps(?) an ID beetween the two songs on this recording.

Quito 2/9 2004:

*** Thursday edition:
*** Recording of unID LA SS on 4845.06 kHz (Bjorn Malm)

I have not noted Radio Macarena for some years, the last time on 5975.28 kHz 3-4 years ago. Listen to this recording and a recording of unID LA SS I made this thursday morning.

This could be a reactivation of Radio Fides, La Paz(Bolivia) on the 60 meter band. I do not have any ID just the word "Bolivia" in one of the songs and in Mark Mohrmans list Fides is noted on 4845.09 kHz year 2000. Very short recording just music. SSB and Narrow Bandwith.

Radio Macarena reactivated on new frequency:

6090.35 Radio Macarena, Villavicencio(Colombia). 94kb. 2/9 2004.
Recorded with SSB and Narrow Bandwith. News program "Noticiero Macarena".
