I logged this station once in 2007, twice in 2008 and again in 2009 but did not get a QSL. With fresh station info from Arnstein in Norway I finally did it today! My report was verified by Oscar Medina with a very friendly and interesting email.
This is a really hard-to-hear radio station. With all the Europeans, + USA + Colombia and Sistema 2 in Guayaquil, conditions have to be very special to let the signals from Radio Contacto to get through. I heard this station September 5 2009 when they carried a soccer game with Manta FC. Last week I sent an email to Manta FC about my reception and today Paúl Ochoa verifies that my recording in fact is from Radio Contacto.
Radio Panamericana has been logged quite frequently the last three weeks here in Bonässund. Perhaps they have made some adjustments to their transmitter? However I had a some problems to get in contact with them. I intended to use their contact form but the Enviar-button was missing. (I could find this button in the html-code of the page, but could not make it work.) Then I got some help from my friend Roger Granholm living in Finland just some 100 kilometers from me. He had found the email address of Sandra Forero on the Internet. Sandra replied to my report within an hour. My thanks to Sandra and Roger.
An Hotmail report with a file on Box.net finally made it. Today Humberto Rodriguez Guevara Gerente de Información confirmed my reception. He did not find my recording "claro" and recommended me to check http://www.rinox.net.ve/...
This is a most wanted QSL. I have tried twice before with no luck but today Scretaria Coordinadora Maritza T. verified my report with a brief email. Henrik Klemetz helped me with some details about an announcement of the Iglesia Universal in Guayaquil, the same could be found on YouTube!
