church in Colombia launches a rogue SW station
Salem Stéreo is a new unlicensed station
broadcasting from Colombia on 14,950.7 kHz shortwave.
Salem Stéreo used to broadcast on FM 106.5
MHz from Rioblanco in the department of Tolima.
Its FM license has been discontinued, but the station
has emerged on shortwave without a license. The
station was first picked up by several North American
DXers from June 17, and identified thanks to recordings
made by Swedish DXer Torolf Johnsson. Much of the
research to the origin of the transmission was done
by Swedish DXer Henrik Klemetz. Pastor Jhon Torres,
interviewed by Klemetz, explained that the station
resorted to streaming on the Internet after losing
its FM license, and would apply for a shortwave
license which would offer a better service for the
local population. Salem Stéreo is run by
a small Pentecostal congregation and is dedicated
to spreading the gospel. Reception reports can be
sent by email.
Verifications have been received from station director
Luis Emilio Torres Garzón.
