WRVA Richmond VA 1140

This is a very rare catch at my place. I think I have logged it twice the last 20 years! Ruth Stoutermire verifies my reception with a very brief email.


Radio Ambato 930

This station was logged September 7 2011. It was a total surprise to me. Two Canadians and LV de Bogota seems to be logged all the time. I sent a report to Gerente Mario Barona V. who sent me a friendly letter. Henrik Klemetz also contacted Sr Barona by phone and tried to convince him to send a message to "En Vivo". Sorry to say but I read the mail after the message was sent. After a tremendeous work Henrik Klemetz received a studio recording. You can find it here: http://www.box.net/shared/m3cvjdsio96rkh7ks3ka. The voice is not Sr Barona but Jorge from the department of sports. Many thanks  to Mr Barona and to  Henrik for making this possible.

Nice email from Jose Luis Quintasi Valer verifies my reception of Radio Pachatusan. José recommended me to listen to their webb stream at http://pachatusanradio.blogspot.com
