OAU6X R Candarave transmitting from Ilabaya (Tacna) on AM 1300 was heard with a decent signal in Sarvsalö on November 28, 2016 during a strong opening. After som tries Eddy Reyes confirmed my reception with a nice email containing also two studio audio files.
Buenas tardes amigo Jan-Erik Österholm, nosotros contentos de haber recibido su mensaje y saber que nos puede escuchar desde tan lejos, y si, efectivamente, somos radio candarave y transmitimos en los 1300 de la amplitud modulada desde el asiento minero de toquepala, centro poblado que pertenece al distrito de Ilabaya, Provincia Jorge Basadre, región de Tacna – Perú. Saludamos también a su familia, su esposa Heidi y sus hijas Anna y Lotta. Adjuntamos una promoción de la radio para confirmar su mensaje. Atte, Eddy Reyes. Muchas gracias Eddy. Thanks also to Henrik Klemetz and Fredrik Dourén for discussions related to Radio Candarave.
This station is a relatively new one on 1500. Transmitting from Isidro Casanova, Provincia de Buenos Aires it was heard in Lemmenjoki during LEM379 in January 2017. A short FB message confirmed my mp3 file submitted.
ZYK602 R Jauense was surprisingly fading up on a frequency occupied by more than 20 Brazilians. This happened on January 16 around 03 UTC. To my knowledge this station has not been heard before in the Nordics. My mp3 was confirmed by email signed by Equipe Jauense-AM. Muito obrigado!
One of the best loggings during LEM379 was without doubt R Lautaro in Talca on 970. Incredible that a 1 /0.25 kW Chilean station completely can take over this frequency which is the home of common “high powers” such as R Universal, Montevideo and R 9-70 Asunción not to forget a bunch of common Brazilians. But, this morning we had a very selective and strong Chile opening between 05-07 UTC as mentioned previously. A nice email was received today. A nice birthday present indeed!
This station has been on my most wanted Argentinian station list for decades. The frequency 620 is mostly occupied by Brazilians R Assuncão, Fortaleza and R Jovem Pan, São Paulo. The most common Argentinian here is probably R Nacional, Resistencia. There are also Nacional stations in La Rioja and Rio Turbio on the frequency as well as R San Rafael in addition to R Provincia Misiones. The latter, LT17, was finally heard during LEM379 on January 27 with a nice peak around 0230 UTC. The stations chief announcer kindly verified my report.
On February 20, 2017 we had a good opening towards Chile between 05-07 UTC in Lemmenjoki during LEM379. One of the station heard was R Stella Maris in Valparaiso, a very big surprise indeed since as far as I know the station has not been heard previously in the Nordic countries. An email and a Facebook message confirmed my report.
