This rare argentinian was heard in Lemmenjoki on October 24, 2011 during a very good but short  La Plata opening. Luis María Facio replied in a couple of hours with the below email:

Estimado Jan, gracias por sintonizarnos, somos una radio que defiende nuestra cultura y tradiciones, nuestra programación es exclusivamente nacional, por lo tanto nuestra musicalizacion esta volcada al tango y folclore, eso no quita que también tengamos un poco de música de nuestro países hermanos, estamos ubicados en capital federal, Buenos Aires, Argentina, y confirmamos tu recepción, efectivamente como dices, nuestro locutor dice ABSOLUTAMENTE NACIONAL, luego la identificación de la radio y el numero de teléfono 4856 8819,  confirmo nuevamente la solicitud, y agradecidos por tu sintonía, siempre atento a tus ordenes

A very nice catch indeed on February 5, 2011 during disturbed cx giving surprising loggings such as this. A nice email received from Craig Cochran at townsquaremedia.com.

KGAB 650AM


XELK was heard in Lemmenjoki on February 2, 2009 with the older formar “Radio Mexicana”. Recently I received an email from Beatriz Díaz Becerra, Directora Comercial. Thanks ABU for v/s!


Logged in Lemmenjoki on 10.2.2012 and answered with an email from Paulo Henrique

 Answered with a nice email v/s Jocemara Escobar after a report sent in January 2012. Heard on October 19, 2011 in Lemmenjoki. Very difficult to dig out something else than Provincia, Buenos Aires and R Brasil Central, Goiania but nevertheless a frequency always worth digging into.

Brazil Radio Continental - 1270 AM


A short email from Kevin Miller, stating, e.g, “It’s grat that you love radio! We wish you were a local here in Idaho!”, verified my report

RÁDIO VITORIOSA AM

This blog is intended for DX-listeners interested in North, Central (including the Caribbean Islands) and South American radio stations. My name is Jan-Erik Österholm (69). I have been an active DX-er since 1963 and since 1968 my DX-focus has almost entirely been on Central and South American SW and AM (since year 1996 almost entirely AM) stations. Close behind the above mentioned LA-DX my focus of interest has been on North American AM stations.During my DX-career, now spanning more than 50 years, I have received more than 3500 verifications from radio stations from all around the world. Of these verifications, close to 3000 come from the Americas. An intension of this blog is, as time progresses, to share with you my experiences in DX-ing towards the Americas including both old and fresh stuff. I know that you understand that putting up an interesting blog is an iterative process which will unfold as the time passes.I hope you’ll enjoy and that you show patience. Comments are most welcome.I live in the City of Borgå (Porvoo in Finnish) some 50 km east of Finland’s Capital City Helsinki. Borgå is the second oldest city in Finland founded 1346 AC with around 50.000 inhabitants situated by the Gulf of Finland. My family consists of my wife Heidi and our two grown-up daughters Anna, (Ph.D in Chemistry), married to Antri,  and Lotta (MSc in Political Sciences) married to Mikko . Heidi has been the perfect companion in everything we have gone through since we met in 1974. She is almost as an experienced DX-er as myself despite that she has only been following my activities on the bands from a distance but she knows about the A- and K-indices, E-skips etc. and she has a relatively sharp ear when helping me with some tricky identifications.
