HJUO Oxígeno Radio, Cartagena 1360

KENO Las Vegas NV 1460

Heard at Smøla on November 3, 2012. Bill Croghan confirms my reception, and adds: "The station was running at normal night power and pattern.  540 Watts into a three tower array shared with KBAD 920 which also runs 540 watts at night, although a different pattern.  I was not able to pick the callout without the help of headphones, but on the second listening using headphones it was obvious".

HCLE7 Radio Oriental, Tena 4781

I never heard Radio Oriental in the golden 80'ies, due to heavy QRM on and around 4781 kHz. But when I heard this station on July 27, 2012, after its return to the shortwaves, the reception was crystal clear. I appreciate this comeback and sent them a reception report with a 5 USD note by air mail. Three month later I received an old fashioned letter from Ecuador with a QSL card, a stickers and some other stuff. The QSL card was signed by Luis Enrique Espín Espinoza, Gerente General. Nice!
