The peruvian station Radio Naylamp is celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary later this year! The station was pretty frequently heard in Scandinavia during the 90’s on a variety of odd frequencies (see HK’s comments below) during good openings towards Peru. R Naylamp is transmitting from Lambayeque in the Lambayeque region in nortwestern Peru. The region is bordered by the Piura Region on the north, the Cajamarca Region on the southeast, the La Libertad Region on the south and the Pacific Ocean on the west. The name Lambayeque is a Spanish derivation of the god Yampellec, said to have been worshipped by the first Lambayeque king, Naylamp.
Says Henrik Klemetz: “Dr. Juan José Grández Vargas, an obstetrician, is the general manager of this friendly station which will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on November 7, 2012. See www.radionaylamp.com. Naylamp (pronounced as “nailán” in Spanish) is a mythological figure, thought to have founded the kingdom of Sicán in the 9th C. He disembarked on the shores of what is now the Peruvian department of Lambayeque. There are many representations of Naylamp and his totora raft (which inspired the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl to undertake his voyages on the Pacific), one of which can be seen on the splendid station pennant.
