La Voz de Guamote 1520

Surprising Ecuadorian heard by several listeners in the Nordic countries during the good opening April 1-3. The station is transmitting from the city of Guamote which is the Capital of the Guamote canton in the Province of Chimborazo. The province has got it’s name from the “dead” volcano Chimborazo that reaches more than 6200 meters above sea level and is the highest mountain in Ecuador. La Voz de Guamote was heard with surprisingly strong signal on April 1, 2014 especially around 0330 UTC. Also heard on April 3. A nice FB confirmation arrived in a day.



Radio Bacan SAT 1320  Radio Bacan Huancayo_2 1320

On April 1-3.2014 propagation towards Perú and also Ecuador was good. One of the stations noticed was R Bacán SAT with transmitting from Huancayo on 1320. The exact split is ca 1319.945v and happens to be almost exactly the same split as R Perú in Juliaca. This time, on April 3 around 03 UTC,  Bacán SAT was reasonably strong with programming // with the more common Lima-region Bacán SAT on 1129.93v. A very nice reply was received promptly from Maribel Gonzales: a long letter and about 10 nice pictures. Mil gracias Maribel!!!
