Developments on the Buenos Aires AM dial

Radio del Buen Ayre, Ituzaingó, Partido de Ituzaingó, is a new station on 1400 kHz, reported in June by Arnaldo Slaen, who picked up the station announcing 4661-4784 as its telephone number. Radio del Buen Ayre has been broadcasting different types of non-stop music as part of its test broadcasts.
Amplitud 770 logo    Radio 750 is a new licensed station in the Greater Buenos Aires, heard by Arnaldo Slaen on June 17, driving neighboring Radio Cooperativa to move from 740 to 770 kHz. Radio Cooperativa in turn is an unlicensed station that seems to have replaced another unlicensed station on 770, namely Amplitud 770, located in Lomas del Mirador, Partido de La Matanza. On its website Amplitud 770 says that its transmission tower was destroyed on July 2, forcing the station off the air, after which another station took over the frequency in less than two days time. The battle for 770 AM was reported by Marcelo A. Cornachioni.
