Colombia 2016 SDR DX Log


On this page I'm recording all the MW DX from Quindio department in central Colombia. I'm including station slogans when I hear them and recordings of ID announcements and jingles. Even though most of these stations will never be heard elsewhere I want this to be a resource for other MW DXers in identifying DX from this part of the world. As off-frequency stations are the ones most likely to be heard elsewhere I use a different color background for those. Future plans are to add loggings made elsewhere in Colombia.

This page includes logs - both local and DX - I made from February 1 to 5 in Salento, Quindio, Colombia (4.6333 N, 75.5667 W). We stayed in a private complex on the outskirts of town. This was the best place I DXed from during the entire two months in Colombia. Not only was it in an open area away from noise sources but there weren't any nearby MW stations. Two evenings I went to a little gazebo about 75 meters from the house and DXed using just battery power. The recordings I made then are amazingly quiet. I also made some timed morning recordings, but they were inside the house and so a bit noiser. In addition to the Salento logs, I'm also going to add battery-power logs I made about 25 kilometers away, outside Armenia, from January 28 to February 1. I haven't started on those yet.

As I write this I probably have only gone through about 30% of my SDR recordings from Salento. I'll be adding new logs and station recordings as I continue to go through them. To date I've logged 261 stations in 15 countries (Anguilla, Bahamas, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, USA, US Virgin Islands, and Venezuela. The vast majority of the stations have been in Colombia. I believe Ecuador is the only other country where I've logged more than ten.

About Colombian Station Names

Perhaps the most difficult thing about DXing Colombian stations is the many networked broadcasts. The major commercial networks (Caracol, RCN, and Todelar) and several religious networks (Colmundo, Autentica, Maria, etc) have stations throughout the country relaying their main programs from Bogota. The relays sometimes have brief breaks for local IDs (I heard some). But there doesn't appear to be any particular time set aside for local IDs. And other network affiliated stations carry the main network at certain times of day or for special events. Furthermore Caracol and RCN operate other station networks. Some, such as Antena Dos and W Radio, largely relay their main network program from Bogota, although they sometimes have local IDs. Others such as La Cariñosa, Q'Hubo Radio, and Oxigeno mostly carry their own programming and often include the location in their ID announcements.

On the higher frequencies where there usually several Colombian stations all this can make exact identification difficult. On some frequencies their is clearly only one network station. For example, hearing Caracol on 1000 kHz must be Cartagena. The other two stations on the frequency belong to other networks. On 1320 there are two La Cariñosa outlets and I heard an ID without a city. So my logging there indicates that the location is unknown. On 1310, where there are seven Colombian stations listed, I heard a Caracol outlet. As Monteria is the only Caracol listed I have logged it as Monteria. There are a couple independent stations on the frequency which could have an affiliation. But it is unlikely they would be carrying a lot of Caracol programming ... and I haven't been able to find anything to indicate that those stations even have a Caracol affiliation. So there is a certain amount of guess work at times.

Thanks to Henrik Klemetz for finding this ID that also mentions 89.7 in "valle del Sula" - which is in the northwest of Honduras. It even sounds like the same announcer.

Unfortunately no ID or other information to point to who. Just long-winded religious talk. (Salento 04 Feb 2016) Both logs appear to be the same station. Given this heard in both Armenia and Salento and at two different time periods I would guess it is one of the high-powered Brazilians here, such as Porto Alegre or Sao Paulo ... maybe Fortaleza.

1300 - Colombia - Q'Hubo Radio (Pereira) 2354-0021 ID & slogan "Q'Hubo Radio en el corazon de los hogares pereiranos."

1330 - Colombia - La Caliente (San Gil) 0857-0904 Possibly the one that came on with the Colombian anthem a few moments before.

1360 - Colombia - Radio Maria/Ecos 13-60 (Pereira) 0052-0114 WRTH 2016 lists this as Ecos 13-60. I heard Radio Maria programming with ID mentioning Radio Maria 1580 in Barranquilla. In checking the Radio Maria website I see that this is now a Radio Maria outlet. Also heard // on 1580. (Salento 05 Feb 2016) 1127-1133 Distorted signal w/ programming or event anmts and Ecos 13-60 ID (Salento 04 Feb 2016) Per information Henrik Klemetz received from Radio Maria, this station carries Radio Maria from 2 - 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. At other hours it broadcasts regular secular programming. Hence the two different IDs and formats.

1370 - Brazil - UNID 0356-0404 Portuguese ID under RCN. Too weak for my ears but hope a Portuguese speaker might be able to figure this out. Continued w/ Portuguese man & woman under RCN. Possibly religious. (Armenia 01 Feb 2016)

1370 - Panama? - Festival 15-40 (Where?) 1056-1109 Frequency dominated by RCN and Minuto de Dios but this faded up for a few minutes with this Festival 15-40 ID. There is a Radio Festival in Panama on 1540 but a // was not heard. Radio Festival 15-40 was logged at other times (see below) but never // 1370. The 2016 WRTH doesn't list any Panamanians on 1370 but there was a station in a different department in the 2014 WRTH. The Radio Festival 15-40 website doesn't list the second frequency and they didn't answer an e-mail about it. So this remains a mystery reception. (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1380 - Colombia - Radio Potencia Latina (La Plata) 2354-0021 Non-stop romantic mx with ID at 0007. Generally the strongest station in a jumble of several. (Salento 04/05 Feb 2016)

1390 - Colombia - La Voz de los Andes (Manizales) 2258-2305 ID as La Voz de los Andes, not Red de los Andes as listed in 2016 WRTH. Into old romantic mx. Of course, don't confuse with a better known Voz de los Andes in Quito. (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1390 - El Salvador - Radio Getsemani (La Union) 0154-0216 Faded up at 0202 with event anmts including ID with phone numbers 2613-8065 and 2634-5848, which are given on their Facebook page. Into religious pgm from New York City.( (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1400 - Colombia - La Cariñosa (Calarca) 2354-0021 Another outlet of this RCN chain. This promo and ID illustrates how complicated these networks get. It first points out that ".. every day for 24 hours we program 14 stations in the Coffee Region ..." Then there's a jingle ID for La Cariñosa followed by Antena Dos sports. I know that I was tuned to the Calarca station. But if you just heard the Antena Dos sports you would think it was one of the two Antena Dos outlets on this frequency. (Salento 04/05 Feb 2016)

1400 - Colombia - Emisora Mariana (Bogota) 0957-1004 Several stations mixing here but heard three IDs for this including this one with frequency. ) 0857-0904 classical mx and ID. On top. (Salento 04 Feb 2016) (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1413 - Moldova - Grigoriopol 0356-0414 Rather weak talk but got progressingly better. By 0410 clear enough on peaks to identify that language was Russian (or similar Slavic language).

1413 - Carrier 0154-0202 Visible TA carrier. Both Oman and Moldova possible at this hour. (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1419.955 - Colombia - La Cariñosa (Ibague) 2354-0021 Romantic pop mx and usual jingle IDs. Ibague isn't that far from Salento but there is a mountain in between so this one fades in and out. (Salento 04/05 Feb 2016) 2258-2305 Ads and IDs mixing with Radio Magdalena. (Salento 04 Feb 2016)

1420 - Colombia - Ecos del Frontino (Frontino) 0957-1004 Nasty distorted sign-on ID obliterating everything else on the frequency. Not all that close or powerful, so level of signal is surprising. (Salento 04 Feb 2016) Several stations battling it out here. This small town station from northern Antionquia Department faded up for what sounds like a sign-off announcement.

Clearly not Quito as the same announcer was heard at the same time. Believe this to be Radio Santa Maria and not Radio Dinamica in Guayaquil because the style and type of programm is typical of rural Catholic radio stations and not big-city Evangelical stations.
