610 HJKL ‘La Cariñosa’, Bogotá – Nice e-mail from Blanca Luz Holguín Diaz, Gerente Nacional de Producción y Programación of RCN Radio, confirming my reception of HJKL ‘La Cariñosa’ in Bogotá. This station was heard during another of the DX peditions to Lista (in november 2005). 610 ‘La Cariñosa’ has since become ‘Bolero 610’, according to this RCN web page while the ‘La Cariñosa’ format can now be heard on 1340 kHz in Bogotá.

640 – YVQO Unión Radio Deportes 640, Puerto La Cruz – A very nice email tonight from José Elías Díaz Gómez, confirming my November 5th 2005 (Lista) reception of YVQO Unión Radio Deportes 640. He’s the host of Programa Sintonía DX which I’ve heard about for yours, but never actually heard. But you can check out his program on or on a radio near you.

700 ZYK686 Rádio Eldorado, São Paulo (SP) – A very nice attachment just arrived with an email from Brazil, where Geraldo Nunes kindly confirmed my reception of Rádio Eldorado, São Paulo 700, heard during KONG15 in October last year. Thanks both to you, Geraldo, and to Ulysses Galletti. And of course to Bjarne Mjelde for providing this information.

770 CX12 Radio Oriental, Montevideo – Very nice email tonight from Leonardo Silvera, Coordinador de Programación, confirming my 7 September 2007 reception of CX12 Radio Oriental, Montevideo 770. I heard the station with an excellent quality on a DXpedition to the famous island of Smøla (Kalvøya) last week end. Leonardo says they also will send me a formal verification and some photos via mail. What a nice radio station!

850 Radio Fé y Alegría, Maracaibo, Venezuela – Was one of the stations heard at Lista in November 2005 when the station was heard fairly well on 850 kHz. I haven’t had any success in getting any reply from the station, untill yesterday when I received an e-mail with a perfect verification text from Javier Barros.

1070 HJCG Radio Santa Fé, Santafé de Bogotá – Quite surprising but pleasant email tonight from HJCG Radio Santa Fé 1070. Blanca Bernal Mahe, Vicepresidente, kindly confirms my October 1st 2005 reception.

1110 YVQT Radio Carúpano, Carúpano – After numeral reception reports to this station since the early 80’ies, I was quite surprised when I received an email this afternoon from Douglas Ramos Osío, Director at Radio Carúpano. A nice happening on a quite eventless day here at the KONG17 DXpedition.
(Arnstein Bue / DX Paradise)

1130 HJVA Vida AM, Santafé de Bogotá – The same email (see HJLI 1520) also confirms my March 10th 2007 reception of HJVA Vida AM 1130. Muchas gracias, Bibiana Amézquita!

1190 Radio Mira Tumaco, Colombia – I was very pleased to receive an e-mail from Radio Mira in , when I returned from my holidays last some days ago. It is more than 3 months since I sent my report to then and I supposed they would go into the record as one of many Colombian stations which wouldn’t reply. Not so: The Director Juan Hernán Payan Jimenez sent me an enthusiastic e-mail verifying my reception of the station and telling me they would send me «un saludo en directo» on September 14 (unfortunately, I was still on holiday at that time). I suppose Radio Mira doesn’t get too many reports as the station is quite rare here in Scandinavia. I have only managed to hear Radio Mira once, during the November 2006 DX-pedition to Lista, when teh station surfaced briefly for a couple of minutes on 1190 kHz. 1190 kHz is normally occupied by another Colombian station, Radio Cordillera in Bogotá (that’s one of the many Colombians which has never replied to my reports) or by WLIB in New York or WBMJ in Puerto Rico. Radio Mira belongs to the Colombian CARACOL network and always identifies as ‘Radio Mira de Caracol’. The station has a live audio feed at the interesting and advanced website

1200 ZYH585 Ceará Rádio Clube, Fortaleza (CE) – After Brazil’s victory against Argentina in Copa America on Sunday, I sent a reminder to a few Brazilian radio stations. One of them was ZYH585 Ceará Rádio Clube, Fortaleza (CE) 1200, which I heard back in 1992. I found an email address on their home page, which worked, and I received a very nice email from Angélica Cavalcanti, who is ‘gerente administrativo financeiro’.

1290 ZYJ310 Rádio Brasil Sul, Londrina (PR) – Very nice email received this night from Barbosa Neto, proprietário, as a reply to my reception report to ZYJ310 Rádio Brasil Sul, Londrina (PR) 1290 which of course was heard at Smøla on 7 September 2007.
(Arnstein Bue / DX Paradise)

1310 HJJZ Radio Manantial, Santafé de Bogotá – During excellent conditions towards South America on 7 September, my latest DXped to Smøla, I suddenly could hear an announcement on 1310 kHz from an unknown station during a short fade in the huge signal from Radio Nacional de Venezuela. The station turned out to be Radio Manantial, after I sent a recording to Jan Alvestad who knew that Colorón ColorRadio had turned into Radio Manantial. Thank you Jan, and a great thank you to Bibiana Amézquita for confirming my reception via email today.

1310 Radio Nacional de Venezuela, Barcelona – After the closure of the 1200 kilowatt mega transmitter at Kvitsøy here in Norway on 1314 kHz, hearing Radio Nacional de Venezuela on 1310 kHz has been dead easy. Radio Nacional de Venezuela is definitely the most commonly heard station on 1310 kHz and has been heard with good signals on all the Lista DX-peditions since then. I have also heard them at my home QTH several times. The 1310 kHz transmitter of RNV is located in the city of Barcelona and has a power of 10 kilowatts according to the WRTH.

Getting a reply from the station has not been easy, but yesterday I received a nice e-mail from Freddy R. Santos, Asistente de Producción at the Canal Internacional of Radio Nacional de Venezuela. Freddy also promises to send a QSL-card and some postcards by ordinary mail – nice!

1320 HJNO La Cariñosa, Girardot – Another station heard during fantastic conditions a month ago at Smøla was HJNO La Cariñosa, Girardot 1320, and tonight Blanca Luz Holguín sent me an email confirming this reception too. Thank you very much, Blanca!

1390 Radio Nuevo Tiempo, Lima, Peru – Radio Nuevo Tiempo was heard one morning around sunrise in September last year on 1380 kHz. This is a rare logging for me as this is the only time I have ever been able to receive Radio Nuevo Tiempo at my place. Mirtha de Cabrera at the station sent me an e-mail confirming my reception of the station some days ago. She tells me that the station now has a live audio stream on the web, which no doubts provides more regular reception of the station here in Norway!

1420 ZYJ754 Rádio Guarujá, Florianópolis (SC) – I never heard this station with no good quality on 5980 kHz, but I happened to pick them up early September at Smøla.

1450 HJNL La Cariñosa, Manizales – Not much is like QSL on a Saturday (well, frankly I could mention a few things …), and I just received a nice email from Jaime Sánchez, Director de las Emisoras de RCN en Manizales. He confimes my reception of HJNL La Cariñosa, Manizales 1450, which I heard among other nice LA stations on 1450 during my stay at Smøla four weeks ago. Also this was my QSL no. 50 from Latin America this year, so it was kind of a jubilee.

1560 Santa Maria de la Paz Radio, Medellín, Colombia – Santa Maria de la Paz Radio is a station which I have so far only been able to receive a couple of times at sunrise at my home QTH. The station broadcasts religious programming exclusively. I have sent a couple of e-mail s to them previously, without success, untill I tried once more and received a friendly e-mail from Productor Daniel Marin.
