*** Recording of 5025.02 Radio Rebelde, Bauta(Cuba)

The LA station on the tropical bands with the best sound quality is Radio Rebelde on 5025.02 kHz. A great station to present as my last audioclip for year 2004.

With this audioclip I want to say thank you very much to all of you that are helping me with this ID page. Thanks for your guest-recordings, photos and comments.

Happy New DX Year 2005! Bjorn Malm

Bauta (small town in the "La Habana" province):

"La ciudad de Bauta es la cabecera del término municipal por su nombre en la provincia de La Habana, Cuba. Esta ciudad fue fundada en 1750 en terrenos del hato Ariguanabo, junto a la laguna de Hoyo Colorado, a orillas, entonces, del antiguo Camino Real de Vuelta Abajo y más tarde la Carretera Central que pasa por Hoyo Colorado en el kilómetro 28.4 de La Habana a Pinar del Río. El ayuntamiento data de 1879". Quito 30/12 2004:

*** Recording of R. Educadora 6 do Agosto, Xapuri, Acre

There is some confusion about the name of this station, if it is "Radio Difusora 6 de Agosto" or "Radio Educadora 6 do Agosto". On my recording the name is Radio Educadora without any doubt.

Thanks to John Sgrulletta(Mahopac, NY() for this mail:

John Sgrulletta: "The 2005 Passport lists Radio Difusora 6 de Agosto. The QSL Information Pages and Eldorado DX also both list Difusora. Only the 2005 WRTH lists Radio Educadora 6 de Agosto. Did you definitely hear Educadora?".

This is a "DX" recording not High Fidelity! 73s Bjorn Malm

*** HCLD2 R. Ecos de Naranjito, JRC NRD 535 and Ten-Tec RX 350D

Naranjito, JRC and Ten-Tec, what´s this? I already have some recordings of Ecos de Naranjito but I like their music/greeting program and two days ago I was lucky to make a new recording with exactly the same recorded ID the station has with female DJ. But this time I made the recording with my new DSP receiver Ten-Tec RX 350D. The first recording was made with my old JRC NRD 535.

This is a good opportunity to compare these two receivers. 2 short clips 10-15 sec.

Same recorded ID the station has with female DJ
Both receivers adjusted for best possible reception
More or less the same signal strength
The same interference from Ecos de Cayambe 9Hz above

Listen to the very clear sound from Ten-Tec RX 350D! 73s Bjorn Malm

*** Recording of 3279.54 kHz La Voz del Napo, Tena

This is my first recording of a shortwave station made with my new DSP radio Ten-Tec RX 350D. I had problems at first with the synchron-detector but after I made a so called "hard reset"(back to factory settings) it´s working wonderful.

On this recording made this wednesday morning you can listen to a very nice song-ID from Radio María - as you know LV del Napo is relaying "Rdio María Ecuador"many hours every day.

Napo River:

"ena is the capital oft the Province Napo, with a population of just over 13,000, it is a small town and has retained much of its culture and traditional lifestyle. Five hours southeast of Quito, Tena is the gateway for a jungle adventure. The climate is surprisingly comfortable, it's cooler, due to its elevation, and drier than most people expect"

*** Recording of 5975 / 835 kHz ZP6 R. Guairá from 1960 (Daniel Camporini)

This is a christmas present to me and to all of you from Daniel Camporini, Buenos Aires(Argentina). He made the recording as early as 1960, two years before I started DXing in Kungshamn located on the west coast of Sweden!

Daniel tells us that the station started 1950 on shortwave 5975 and mediumwave 835 kHz transmitting from Villarica, Paraguy with 5 kw/MW and 1 kw/SW. R. Guairá is of course inactive on SW but us still on mediumwave. Thank you Daniel for a very nice christmas present!

HCHR1 Radio Quitumbe , Quito now with new name: "R.T.U. Satelital". Same type of program as before, good Ecuadorian music and news. On this recording you can listen o Paulina Tamayo from Quito and very nice IDs.

This is the first recording made with my new DSP radio "TenTec RX 350D". It´s very thrilling testing a new radio after 11 years with my NRD 535. "RX 350D" is a very good receiver and it´s a real pleasure working with it. Later on I will tell you more after I have learned using all new buttons.

*** Recording of new Ecuadorian in Lago Agrio 5999.29 kHz

"La Voz del Upano" is not a new radio station but this transmitter in "Lago Agrio" is brand new and "hot". I have had the last 2 days an open carrier on 5999.29 kHz without any audio. This saturday evening first relay of a FM transmitter "99.3" and then the DJ was talking about this new transmitter in "Lago Agrio", Provincia de Sucumbíos" in the Amazonas jungle. He said regular transmissions will start 15th of december.

The town has two names: "Lago Agrio" and "Nueva Loja"(many people has moved in from the town of "Loja" in southern Ecuador) and is the capital of the province "Sucumbíos" in the north-east part of Ecuador.

*** Thursday evening edition:
*** Recording of harmonic Radio Popular, Cali 5399.62 kHz

Harmonics is a quite difficult part of DXing, you have everything against you: weak signal, often distorted sound, electrical noise etc. You can find harmonics anywhere on the shortwave bands but here in Quito I hear most of them beetween 1.7 - 4.8 Mhz (2nd and 3rd harmonics from mediumwave stations). But this time I´m going to present the 5th harmonic from a mediumwave station in Cali.

I´m wondering if this Cali-station could be my unID "Radio Familiar Cristiana" I had around 4915 kHz? (see "Archive" 13/4 2004). Also Radio Popular has religious programs in the mornings.

*** Wednesday edition:
*** Recording of 5547.2 R La V de Andamachay (Henrik Klemetz)

19/11 2004 I reported a new Peruvian on 5544.65 kHz Radio San Andrés, San Andrés, Cutervo, Cajamarca(Peru). It´s always a danger in saying it´s a "new" station. To me it´s a new station if the transmitter has a new location and new owner. The transmitter-unit of Radio San Andrés is probably the same as for Radio San Lorenzo, a station I logged around 2 years ago on the same frequency: 5544.70 kHz. Henrik Klemetz has sent me a recording from 1993 of the Peruvian station R La V de Andamachay on 5547.2 kHz. Perhaps the same transmitter-unit as for Radio San Andrés and Radio San Lorenzo.
Thank you very much Henrik for this recording. 73s Bjorn Malm

Henrik Klemetz:
"I am quoting from:
where it says as follows: ---5547.2 PERU. R La V de Andamachay, Dec 18, closing down 0059 after a prgr of musical requests. New station. -- Same day, s/on 2338 with NA, into "Tropicalizando la noche", various announcments for 5545 and location seems to be a "caserío" in the Cortegana district of Celendín. Possibly owned by Fernando Vasquez Castro (manager-owner of R Frecuencia VH) as there were mentions of him, greetings etc. Also, the speaker once mixed it all up, saying "8 de la noche con 7 minutos en R La Voz de Celendín, eh, perdón, es R La Voz de Andamachay (Klemetz)".

*** Recording of unID Peruvian on 6329.11 kHz

I heard this Peruvian testing last night monday. I asked if this is a new Peruvian but it has to be the same station I reported in March this year: LV de Faique, Faique, Cajamarca(Perú) on 6329.10 kHz. You can listen to my earlier recording of LV de Faique and also his new recording of unID Peruvian on 6329.11 kHz. It´s difficult to hear if the name begins with "F...." or "S....". What is your opinión? Thanks to Glenn Hauser and Henrik Klemetz for feedback.
73s Bjorn Malm

Glenn Hauser(USA):
"Bjorn, Name reminds me of Faique, and indeed that matches with an item in Mark Mohrmann`s current log -- 6329.10 PERU RLVd El Faique, El Faique [2353-0235*] Mar 04 X LA ex-Estacion C? X means it was reported in Conexion Digital, but not since last March. 73".

*** Recording of the new Peruvian Radio San Andrés 5544.65 kHz

Radio San Andrés started their test transmissions on 5544.65 kHz two days ago without giving ant IDs, just music and greetings to people living in Santa Cruz, Cajamarca. But the QTH is not Santa Cruz but "San Andrés, Cutervo, Cajamarca".

Last night the station was IDing very often and sounded more like Ecuadorin than a Peruvian station. At least 75% of the music was from Ecuador: "Las Hermanas Mendoza", Julio Jaramillo" etc etc. Close down the same time every night at 0400 UTC.The transmissions starts 1800 UTC.
73s Bjorn Malm

John Sgrulletta(USA): Thanks for the tip, Bjorn! "I am hearing a station right now (0327 UTC) on this frequency with a male announcer and occasional music. I am using a Japan Radio NRD-515 and K9AY Loop antenna. No sign of them yesterday after I first saw your e-mail but peaks above the noise often.73s- John Sgrulletta Mahopac, NY, USA".

780 kHz:
unID religious station. Good signals towards Peru so Hasse is thinking of LV de la Esperanza, Juliaca. The religious Radio Victoria is also loisted on this frequency. For me it´s almost impossible to check this out because of our local station Radio Colón, Quito. Moved some year ago from 920 kHz. Normally just music evenings.

1030 kHz:
Also on this frequency has Hasse an unID religious station. He heard them on my birtday 26th of september! It´s quite difficult to monitor this frequency because of splash from nearby HCHR1 R. Quitumbe , Quito(Ecuador) but I have listen some hours and logged for the first time the Ecuadorian station HCRF2 R. Punto 1030, Guayaquil(Ecuador) and guess what: this is a station with religious programs both mornings and evenings. Both with "normal" spanish speaking DJ and DJ with brasilian accent.

RCN Antena 2 and a Peruvian unID station I´m also hearing on 1030 kHz (both with non religious programs).

If you are a member of mailinglists and reading Glenn Hausers "DXLD" you know that Dave Valko from U.S.A. is a very active DXer. The recording of R. Mallku he made on one of his "Micro-DXpeditions ". Thanks Dave!

Dave Valko:
"As for my micro-DXpeditions (called "micro" because the preparation is very quick and they don't last as long as regular DXpeditions); I drive to several locations nearby to escape the local noise. I'll take along the NRD-535D and operate it from a rechargeable "Power Tank" battery or marine battery. I also use a portable Sony or Sharp minidisc recorder or Marantz tape recorder.

The antennas are nothing more than insulated wire of about 100-200 meters laid out on top of the ground. I just connect the wire right into the High Z input on the NRD. As you've heard, it works really well. I discovered long ago that the key to hearing difficult DX is to get away from noise sources and lay out resonant Beverage antennas in the direction of the stations you're trying for. In other words, the results you want are a maximum signal strength with a low noise floor".
