Honduras and other recent loggings

December 29, 2013 By: admin Category: BC-stations, DX-listening

Propagation has been very interesting last two weeks. Not very good always, but we’ve got some interesting openings like a long opening to Honduras on the 23rd Dec, shorter to Mexico City on the Christmas Eve and then nice condx to Caracas on the 25th. On the 26th I noticed that my antenna (which is at the remote station) was broken, seems that it went broken at night of 26th.

North America

1130 22.12. 0000- USA: KTCN Minneapolis MN.
1150 23.12. 0500- USA: WHBY Kimberly WI. Previous morning even better. In Europe Radio Sonora from Guatemala was heard here.
1290 24.12. 0100- USA: WKBK Keene NH. 3rd time this season.
1300 24.12. 0100- USA: WGDJ Rensselaer NY.
1320 24.12. 0400- USA: WLQY Hollywood FL.
1640 24.12. 0401- USA: WTNI Biloxi MS. Ads and IDs in the sports px. Good signal and nice state. New one for me. [.178].
1670 23.12. 0559- USA: WPLA Dry Branch GA. Another new one. [.011].

Central America

1190 24.12. 0458- CUB: CMKC R Revolución, Chivirico, Santiago de Cuba.
1280 24.12. 0400- CUB: CMKW R Mambí, Santiago de Cuba. I noticed a station few Hz below NotiUno with certain “Cuban audio”. Station was fading with NotiUno very badly but after some careful listening I could understand the ID which was something like: “Radio informatico de Cuba … CMKW Radio Mambí … Santiago de Cuba..”. Fellow DXer JMS confirmed my hearing and told that JPR has heard this few times (even there are no loggings in OLL).
1300 23.12. 0628- HND: HRLH CCI Radio, Tegucigalpa. This was heard over half an hour with split [1299.970] same time with HRVC 1390. I couldn’t find real ID from my files but identity of this religious station seemed to be quite certain. Anders Hulqvist in Sweden heard this last year also with HRVC. Many other DXers in Sweden and at least PUL/R in Finland, received this same time. By my suprise they replied to me quickly writing that yes, it is their programme. I’ve heard a programme which was originally a cermon of American pastor Adrian Rogers called “El Amor Que Vale” (or “Love Worth Finding” in English, see comment of Henrik Klemetz below). One of the highlights in 2013 for sure!
1390 23.12. 0631- HND: HRVC La Voz Evangélica, Tegucigalpa/Sta Rosa de Copán. Good solid signal over half an hour. Talk programme with good IDs. [.997]
1470 24.12. 0557- MEX: XEAI R Fórmula, México DF. Excellent IDs and national anthem.
1570 24.12. 0600- MEX: XERF La Poderosa, Cd. Acuña. “La Poderosa” and national anthem. Split was old [.004]. Also XEUR 1530 came somehow but too weak for reception report.
1620 23.12. 0400- VIR: WDHP Frederiksted, St Croix. “You’ve been listening to WDHP…” [.990].

South America

1340 25.12. 0428- VEN: YVNE R Uno, Caracas. Long and good signal with music px. Counted seconds to Christmas. Three new Caracas stations this morning: YVNE, YVXD and YVUD. Now I have heard 45 different YV stations on Mediumwaves (2012-2013).
1370 25.12. 0425- CLM: HJBO Emisora Minuto de Dios, Barranquilla.
1390 22.12. 0459- PRU: R Fé, Chiclayo. Thanks to HK for help with this split [.066] which I heard already in September (24.9.). Henrik had eg. good audio clip of time announcement of this station, which was identical to what I heard. Faint ID here too. Station is closing down just after 05Z.
1460 22.12. 0702- CLM: HJJW Emisora Nuevo Continente, Bogotá. Also strong Columbians 1590, 1580, 1550, 1520, 1490, 1450, 1410, 1400, 1340, 1250, but nothing new or more interesting.
1490 25.12. 0426- VEN: YVXD La Dinámica, Caracas. [.013] Same time also Llanerísima [1429.906], but possible ID is too weak.
1550 23.12. 0701- CLM: HJZI G12 Radio, Bogotá. At first couldn’t understand the ID (“Esta es he doce radio … 1550 AM … HJZI…”). Heard also 22.12. at 0502Z.
1590 23.12. 0700- CLM: HJIP BBN, Envigado. Lately heard in the many mornings.
1590 25.12. 0359- VEN: YVUD R Deporte, Caracas. [.997].

  1. Henrik Klemetz says:

    Guatemalan Radio Sonora on 1150 was logged at the same time by Arne Nilsson in northern Sweden and Barry Davies in the UK. The signal was much stronger in AN’s QTH. — El Amor que Vale, heard on CCI Radio on 1299.97, is a translated and adapted version of Adrian Rogers’s sermons in a series originally called Love Worth Finding. Ptr. Rogers passed away in 2005 and so he cannot be hosting the programme. The voice that made it to Finland and Sweden on December 23 is that of Ptr. Lenín de Janón.

    The Dominican 890 AM was heard on a split of 890.12 last october at LEM331.
