Radio San Juan de Chota, Peru


The following item is taken from Relampago DX by Takayuki Inoue Nozaki. It is placed here with permission.

Radio San Juan de Chota, the third broadcasting station in Chota, was established on June 24, 1984 by Ra�l Rivera Burga Guilberto, who was also the owner of Radio Nuevo Cajamarca. The station was first noted by DX enthusiasts in mid July of 1984, on the measured frequency of 5274.4 kHz. It broadcast in two time slots: 1100-1500 and 2200-0300. Transmitting on the nominal frequency of 5275 kHz, the station was equipped with a "FRANVEL" brand transmitter of an output power of 0.25 kW and a 1/2-wave dipole antenna. The shortwave transmission was beamed to people living throughout the Department of Cajamarca and also the northeastern regions of Peru. Radio San Juan de Chota was last reported on the air on 5274.3 kHz in the middle of January 1986. The transmitter was sold to Radio Waira, which made its first appearance in late January of 1988, on 6093.2 kHz in the 49-meter band and later moved to 4700.1 kHz in the 60-meter band.
