The best Bolivia night so far!

May 16, 2013 By: admin Category: DX-listening

The night, and especially the sunrise on the 9th of May 2013 was amazing. It turned to be the best Bolivia opening ever, for me at least. I heard Bolivians on several frequencies. There is still more to come as some stations are unidentified but with some hope to get solved later.

1300 kHz
This station (1300.002) sent some kind of monologue by very young girl or boy. Also Andis music. The most likely Radio Sol from Bolivia.
1400 kHz
Unindentified station sending football (1399.852). Almost 100% CP3 Radio Nacional from La Paz.
1440 kHz
CP107 Radio YaguarĂ­, Vallegrande, Depto. Santa Cruz identified very nicely. Same lady gave ID also next night. This frequency opened around 0130z when Saudi Arabian signal faded out.
1480 kHz
Radio Bendita Trinidad, Tarija sending same programme than 1540 kHz. Tarija tx started the 26th of April 2013. There is also transmitters listed to Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, but it is unclear if these are on. Cochabamba fits to propagation very well. 1480 was heard also next night while 1540 was very weak.
1520 kHz
Sending religious programme (1520.055). Split confirms almost 100% that it is Radio La Luz del Tiempo El Alto, La Paz, but no ID heard.
1540 kHz
Radio Bendita Trinidad, El Alto (1539.990). This one I have tried to hear before this spring. Now I heard it with S9+15dB, which is louder than anyone in Scandinavia has heard this before according to Henrik Klementz 🙂 This religious station has here on 1540 kHz problems with their transmitter. You hear some hum in the signal and especially strong “foghorn effect” from time to time. I believe that their tx’s power supply has problems. You can listen to RBT recorded by me here: RBT replied very quickly (thanks for info by HK) with long email giving me my first confirmed Bolivian.
1550 kHz
CP115 Radio Caranavi (1550.004) seemed to be the most common Bolivian MW-station heard in Finland 1990s, early 2000s. Now it is not so common at all. This super night it had a super signal.
1580 kHz
Radio El Fuego del EspĂ­ritu Santo, El Alto (1580.455). I think it IDed “el la Radio Espiritu Santo”. Split confirms this almost 100%.

All these stations were heard at 0130 UTC on the 9th of May. More to come …
