New Paraguay radio station

A new Catholic radio station has begun broadcasting in Paraguay. Radio Fe y Alegría belongs to Compañía de Jesús (Society of Jesus), a religious order of the Roman Catholic church. The Jesuit station broadcasts from the capital Asunción on the mediumwave frequency of 1300 kHz. Radio Fe y Alegría intended to begin transmissions already in November 2007, but the project was delayed. Experimental low-power broadcasts were reportedly launched in December, and full operation was to begin in February 2008. Radio Fe y Alegría intends to be a channel of social change, promoting education and social justice. The station can be contacted by writing to Radio Fe y Alegría, O'Leary 1847 e/6° y 7° Proyectadas, Asunción, Paraguay, or by calling at +595-21-390-576 / +595-21-371-659, or by fax at +595-21-390-584.
