Caribena 1000

I received a nice confirmation on a f/up on a 2009 report on YVNM Caribeña, Morón some weeks ago from Directora Yaneirys Gonzalez who seems to be a very friendly young woman towards us DX-ers. She indicated that she would like to start a DX-program over Caribeña. I directed her to HK for professional help to initiate this! Gert Nilsson (GN) kindly sent me the v/s info that he previously had received from Jan Edh (JE). Thanks guys! For me this was a nice verification since I have sent reports to both R Morón and Caribeña several times since the 1970’s without an success!

Gracias por su confirmación Yaneirys y buena suerte con su programa especial de DX!



BLU Radio Cartagena 1090

Blu Radio Cartagena (ex. R Bucanero) was heard during LEM345 in late October 2014 with a decent signal. This is a rather new chain of radio stations in Colombia (established in September 2012) comprising, at this moment, 8 FM stations and 2 AM stations in the order of: Calí 91.5, Eje Cafetero 94.1, Villavicencio 96.3, Bogotá 96.9, Medellín 97.9, Barranquilla 100.1, Neiva 103.1, Boyacá 103.1, Bucaramanga 960 (ex Candela) and Cartagena 1090 (ex Bucanero). Blu Radio is going to open three more FM stations in capital cities shortly. The aim is to have the entire station chain on FM. In Bucaramanga and Cartagena, however, there are presently no FM frequencies available, hence the two AM frequencies 960 and 1090. Thanks HK for your help!

I got a very descriptive and nice email confirmation a couple of days ago.
