DXpedition to Peru
On August 05-18, 2011, Dario Monferini and Roberto Pavanello from Italy were on a DXpedition to the Peruvian Andes. There they met DXers Carlos Gamarra in Cusco (altitude 3.340 meters) and Pablito Albornos in Shismay (2.320 meters altitude), 24 km. north of Huánuco. They brought two Degen 1103’s and one Sangean ATS909. Here are their shortwave loggings mostly heard between 2315 and 0200 UTC.
