Radio Logos new from Bolivia on 6165 kHz shortwave

A new shortwave station has begun broadcasting in Bolivia. Radio Logos in Santa Cruz operates on 6165 kHz on the 49 meter shortwave band. The transmitter facilities were set up by Ray Rising (ham operator CP6RR), Julio Andino and Wayne Borthwick (VA7GF) on December 18, 2005. The antenna is an NVIP (near vertical incidence) antenna using four half wave dipoles and is presently fed with a 5 kW AM transmitter. Radio Logos also has a 1 kW transmitter, but technical problems keep it off the air for now. The transmitter and antenna are on the same plot of land as Radio Centenario La Nueva, which broadcasts on 4865 kHz. Initially most of the programming is satellite-fed Christian programming in Spanish, and is being simulcast on 4865 kHz, but more local programming, including indigenous language programming, is to be added later. Information about the station was reported by Borthwick on DXLD on January 21.
