Radio Nacional Paraguay on 920 AM is now 100 kW
Radio Nacional Paraguay launched on Sunday March 18th a new 100-kilowatt medium wave transmitter, in order to reach the whole of the Paraguayan territory. The new transmitter is of type “Harris”, and required an investment of 2,500 million Guaranis (over $ 580,000 dollars), which also included the installation and remodeling of the transmission plant located in Capiatá, 21 kilometers east of Asuncion. It uses the frequency 920 kHz. The original transmitter plant was inaugurated in 1957, and was for several years troubled with obsolete equipment and poor infrastructure, emitting only 10 kW to 35 kW of power.
