Listening to radio stations from the Americas

CC97 Radio Lautaro, Talca CHL 970

cc97-radio-laiutaro-970

One of the best loggings during LEM379 was without doubt R Lautaro in Talca on 970. Incredible that a 1 /0.25 kW Chilean station completely can take over this frequency which is the home of common “high powers” such as R Universal, Montevideo and R 9-70 Asunción not to forget a bunch of common Brazilians. But, this morning we had a very selective and strong Chile opening between 05-07 UTC as mentioned previously. A nice email was received today. A nice birthday present indeed!

LT17 Radio Provincia Misiones, Posadas MS ARG 620

lt17-radio-provincia-misiones-620

This station has been on my most wanted Argentinian station list for decades. The frequency 620 is mostly occupied by Brazilians R Assuncão, Fortaleza and R Jovem Pan, São Paulo. The most common Argentinian here is probably R Nacional, Resistencia. There are also Nacional stations in La Rioja and Rio Turbio on the frequency as well as R San Rafael in addition to R Provincia Misiones. The latter, LT17, was finally heard during LEM379 on January 27 with a nice peak around 0230 UTC. The stations chief announcer kindly verified my report.

CB63 Radio Stella Maris, Valparaiso, CHL 630

cb63-radio-stella-maris-630

On February 20, 2017 we had a good opening towards Chile between 05-07 UTC in Lemmenjoki during LEM379. One of the station heard was R Stella Maris in Valparaiso, a very big surprise indeed since as far as I know the station has not been heard previously in the Nordic countries. An email and a Facebook message confirmed my report.

L—- Radio Selva, Partido de la Matanza, BA ARG 1710

l-radio-selva-1710

Radio Selva, Partido de la Matanza, BA is a rather new station on 1710, or actually on a clear split, on 1709.800. The station was audible almost every night during our two week LEM379 in January. The stations conductora del programa “Bajo el cielo misionero” confirmed my reception rapidly both via Facebook and with a nice email. Gracias Gabriela!

LRA4 Radio Nacional, Salta, SA ARG 690

lra4-radio-nacional-salta-690

Radio Nacional, Salta is heard every now and then on Lemmenjokis superb 250 degree antenna. My report from LEM367 in February 2016 was confirmed via Facebook.

L— Radio Unidad, Alejandro Korn, BA ARG 1630

l-radio-unidad-1630

Heard several times during LEM379 in Lemmenjoki in January 2017. The audio was somewhat distorted but cleraly readable using larger band widths. The station confirmed my reception with a kind email:”¡Saludos y bendiciones Jan Erik! Un gusto saber que nos escuchas desde Finalandia, sentimos mucha gratificación saber que la palabra de Dios llega en aquellos lugares. Respecto a su mail, transmitimos desde Radio Unidad AM 1630 y contamos con programas de lunes a viernes de 07:00 a 00:00 horas, sábados y domingos prédicas en vivo 19:30hs.¡Impartimos bendición sobre su vida!

ZYJ506 Rádio Resende AM, Resende, RJ BRA 1580

radio-resende-am-1580

Resende AM was heard in the Borgå archipelago on May 26, 2016 during a very selective opening centered around the State of Rio de Janeiro (see earlier posts). The station identity was nailed by a clear “ZYJ506” in the TOH-id. Pertti Äyräs and I heard this station several years ago in Lemmenjoki in January 2002 but at that time on 1590. I recently finally received  a confirmation on my report. 1580 is a very interesting frequency during good cx towards Brazil with numerous rare stations. It is however mostly a very difficult frequency.
