Radio Charrua 1140

Rádio Charrua was heard in Lemmenjoki during the LEM333 pedition in early November 2013. During the first half of November last year the cx was heavily influenced by proton storms making receptions towards the north of the Americas, i.e.,  USA/Canada and Mexico and even the northern parts of South America, almost impossible to hear.  With the exception of a couple of days almost all signals from the Americas heard originated from stations from the Brazilian states of Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul in addition to stations from Argentina and Uruguay.

Rádio Charrua was at the time of reception on November 3 completely alone on 1140 for some 20 minutes. No interference from the usually dominating Rádio Cultura da Bahia! The frequency is a very interesting one indeed but it is very rare to get IDs from any other Brazilian than Rádio Cultura that usually tends to fade up perfectly just in time for an ID.

I just received a nice confirmation of my hearing of R Charrua. Muito obrigado!
