Bolivian shortwave station heard on 5680 kHz

A station which was initially reported as Radio San Rafael from San Rafael in Departamento de Cochabamba, appears to have been Radio La Voz del Campesino from Sipe Sipe on a new frequency. "Radio San Rafael" was first reported heard on 5680.7 kHz shortwave on March 11 by Nicolas Eramo in Argentina. Subsequent listening has not resulted with similar station identifications, instead Eramo has heard a station in Aymara talking about Sipe Sipe, presumably being Radio La Voz del Campesino. The WRTH lists Radio La Voz del Campesino on 6537 kHz shortwave, while CP68 Radio San Rafael is listed on 1310 kHz mediumwave with a power of 10 kW, located at Calle Calama E-0315 (or Casilla 546), in Cochabamba. According to the WRTH, Radio San Rafael broadcasts in Aymara and Quechua at 0900-1100 and 2300-0200 UTC.
