All times UTC // parallel frequency *sign-on / sign-off*

15344.17, Radio Nacional, 2300-2320. Futbol game with the usual exaggerated "g-o-a-ls". Spanish announcements,promos. “Radio Nacional” IDs. Fair. // 6060 - poor with co-channel interference from Brazil‘s Super Radio Deus é Amor. (Alexander, PA)

15344.20, Radio Nacional, 0204-0227.* Excellent program of Bossa Nova songs. Signal mostly fair till suddenly off in mid-song. (Ron Howard, CA/Cumbre DX)

4700, Radio San Miguel (presumed), 0231-0302. Spanish with Latin American pop songs. Signal too weak to ID. (Ron Howard, CA/Cumbre DX)

4795.84, Radio Mallku (Radio Lipez),(tentative), 0950-1000. Regretably there's some confusion here by me. EIBI says Lipez as the name of this station and AOKI says it's Mallku. At this time there's so much noise from the atmosphere that it's difficult even to hear the signal let alone any details or names. Noted a female in Spanish comments between music selections.(Chuck Bolland, FL)

5952.44, Emisoras Pio XII, 1044-1105. Announcers' Spanish comments between musical selections. At 1046 a female comments briefly, 1049 noted canned aDs or promos presented. Signal was fair but not very clear due to splatter and noise.(Chuck Bolland, FL).

Music follows with a tune about Radio Santa Cruz. Another canned ID, then more music. Finally at 0908, a male in live Spanish comments opens the programming. This all was the same format heard on Saturday morning at 0900. Usually, the signal is buried in the noise, but the last couple of days it's been a different story. The quality of the signal has been good at least for the first 20 minutes after 0900 UTC.(Chuck Bolland, FL)

6134.84, Radio Santa Cruz, 0902-0915. Noted an interval signal followed by full canned

6155.31, Radio Fides (presumed), 0156-0203.* Spanish with traditional flute music and singing till off in mid-song. First time I have heard them this high in frequency. Signal best reception in a while, as I usually just have a carrier with no audio. A good evening for Bolivian reception! (Ron Howard, CA/Cumbre DX)
