Ecuadorian Shortwave Log

Compiled by Don Moore



Following are my detailed shortwave loggings made in Ecuador between October 27 and November 19, 1997. Equipment used was an unmodified Sony ICF-2010 receiver and Yaesu YH-77 headphones. For antennas, I had a Radio Shack clip-on-reel-in short wire antenna plus my twenty-year old Radio West ferrite loop antenna. I had planned to use the loop for medium wave only, but soon discovered that with the shortwave coil in place, it far outperformed the reel-in wire all the way through 8 MHz.


Loggings dated October 27 through November 11 were made in the city of Cuenca in southern Ecuador. There we stayed in an apartment complex about 3 kilometers from the city center. The complex consisted of about 100 apartments in several adjoining four story buildings. We were in a third-floor apartment. The complex was surrounded on three sides by residential neighborhoods (mostly one and two floor homes) and on the fourth side was flanked by a long narrow park bordering a narrow river. Generally, it was a very quiet location. The only significant noise troubles I had were from the kitchen and bathroom flourescents in our apartment, which my family quickly learned to avoid using when I was DXing!

Loggings dated November 14 through November 19 were made in Quito, where we finished up our trip after taking care of our adopted son's U.S. visa requirements in Guayaquil. We stayed in a small two-floor hostal on a quiet side street just two blocks from the HCJB studio/office complex. Again, it was a quiet location and I had no trouble with noise at all. Thanks to Ken and Polly MacHarg for finding this location for us.

The loggings use standard DX abbreviations and should be understood by experienced radio hobbyists. Many station identifications and other announcements have been transcribed here. Three questions marks, ???, indicate a word I was unable to understand. A (word?) in parentheses with a question mark indicate a word that I am not sure of.

Some of these announcements are "canned" and the identical announcements will continue to be heard on these stations. Other announcements were "live" and obviously will vary from time to time and announcer to announcer. Still, I think a close reading of these announcements would be useful for anyone interested in knowing more of the style and wording used in radio station identifications and announcements, especially for Peru and Ecuador. My next project is to go through my medium wave log and transcribe the many medium wave station IDS that I have recorded. Those logs will be added here once finished.

Not surprisingly, the Peruvians were the largest percentage of the stations logged on shortwave while in Ecuador. They boom in to both Cuenca and Quito. Most of northern Peru's "shortwave hotbed" including towns such as Huancabamba, Cutervo, and Yurimaguas are within 300 air miles of Cuenca, so DXing was possible in Cuenca all day long, especially on stations above 6 MHz. For example, Radio Oriente on 6188 put in excellent signals even in early and mid-afternoon. On the other hand, a lot of the northern Peruvians do not broadcast during the day, so only a few could be heard during these extended DX hours.


I very much enjoyed listening to both Peruvian and Ecuadorian stations with such good signals. I am quite a fan of the folk music. The most significant thing to me, however, was hearing stations in the Peruvian towns of Chota and Cutervo give their telephone numbers over the air. I visited these towns in 1985 and at that time they were remoted isolated communities. The bus ride from Cajamarca to Chota took twelve hours, and Cutervo was beyond that. I do not believe the road has been improved, but surely the improved communication of telephones has changed the character of the towns.

Also, I can't help but wonder if the modern development of cable television has reached the area. Two years ago while listening to Radio Satelite in Santa Cruz, I heard a progress report of that town's plan to put in a satelite dish and establish a cable TV network. I have not visited Santa Cruz, but understand that it is a similar-sized isolated community not far from Chota and Cutervo.

Over the past two decades, shortwave radio has thrived in the northern Andes of Peru primarily because it was used to send paid "comunicados" (personal announcements) from one town to another due to the lack of good communications. The presence of telephones in the region can only decrease that need, with a corresponding decrease in station revenues. Cable television, should it come in, will draw listeners away from radio stations. While I don't think the demise of mass shortwave broadcasting in Peru is imminent, do enjoy the coming sunspot peak. I suspect that by the following one the bands will be very empty of Latin American radio stations.
