New Colombian on 780 kHz
A new Colombian AM station has been launched in Barrancabermeja. It’s been a collaboration of Diocese of Barrancabermeja, ‘Programa del Desarrollo y Paz del Magdalena Medio’, ‘Inupaz’ and ‘Asociación Red de Emisoras Comunitarias del Magdalena Medio’ (Aredmag). The station is already on the air. With 10 kilowatts of power, ‘Emisora de Interés Público‘ is the first regional transmitter in this part of the country. Their broadcasts reach the community in more than 30 municipalities in 4 ‘deparetmentos’. Aided by the new technology the signal reaches also other ‘departementos’ like Norte de Santander, Atlántico, Bolívar and according to the experts, at night it covers great part of the countries in Central America. This initiative is supported by the project ‘Radio para la Vida y la Paz’, subsidized by the European Union through the ‘Laboratorio de Paz del Magdalena’. The test transmissions have been conducted successfully since 15th of February. The transmitters are located in the Santa Lucia property of the University of La Paz and the studio is located in the address:
Diócesis de Barrancabermeja, Calle Octava, entre carreras 15 y 16.
