Radio News in April 2011

Changes on the Buenos Aires AM dial

The AM dial in the Argentine capital continues to change. Radio Rebelde from Remedios de Escalada has begun broadcasting on 850 kHz. This station however appears to be a reincarnation of Radio Ciudad de Lanús, which used to transmit on 740 kHz. During its history Radio Ciudad de Lanús had operated on a number of AM frequencies (1020, 1160, 1320, 1450 and 1560 kHz), and as soon as the station signed off for good on 740, Radio Rebelde appeared on 850 kHz. To confuse the identity a bit more, Radio Rebelde has been heard rebroadcasting Radio Independencia from 1140 kHz. According to DXer Marcelo A. Cornachioni, the station is unlicensed, but appears to be protected by both the local and national government, and supports the government in its programming. It is operated by Movimiento de
Integración Latinoamericana de Expresión Social (MILES). Cornachioni was the first to publish news about the station on Condig mailing list on April 13. Radio Rebelde can be reached by email.
     Radio La Roca on 1530 kHz is another unlicensed station in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area. This Christian station can be found at Calle Fardman 4640, Gregorio de Laferrere, Partido de La Matanza, Provincia de Buenos Aires, with phone number (011) 4626-7749. Also this station was first reported by Cornachioni on Condig.

Ozyradio identified on 5050 kHz from Australia

The Australian station that has been heard broadcasting irregularly on 5050 kHz has been identified as Ozyradio. According to owner Craig Allen the station broadcast at a power of 300 watts in early April, with a new antenna. The station has been reported by Australian DXers, including Ian Baxter on April 7, and has subsequently been reported heard as far away as in North America. The station airs automated programming without own station identifications.
