received a QSL from Radio Comas Televisión in Perú. It consists
of an information letter and a QSL certificate. The letter
is signed by Edgar Saldaña Reátegui, Jefe de Prensa, e-mail:
The certificate is signed by Julio Saldaña Reátegui, Gerente
Comercial. By e-mail he can be reached via: email@example.com
I had sent a snail mail follow-up with a dollar and some enclosures
and an e-mail follow-up. The e-mail follow- up was also answered
a few days ago. I had used the following address, from which
there was also the reply: firstname.lastname@example.org
Snail mail address is: Radio Comas Televisión S.R. Ltda.,
Av. Estados Unidos 327, Comas Km. 10 Av. Túpac Amaru, Lima,
I should perhaps mention that all this was for a report of
September 2000 when the station was on 4880 kHz. They also
indicate this frequency in their letter head now. So I am
not sure where they transmit now, because in the meantime
I saw them reported on 3250 kHz again. Best 73's and good

Argentinian DXer Nicolas Eramo reports that the Peruvian station
on 4881.2 kHz is Radio Comas, transmitting from Comas, Peru.
This is a move from its earlier frequency 3250.8 kHz, logged
recently, August 16, by Michael Schnitzer on a DX-trip to
Nicolas Eramo reports a clear ID in a reception on August
21 in his HCDX message:
Radio Comas, Comas, 0329 -0455#, Aug 21, Spanish, musical
program with cumbias and salsa.
ID "Radio Comas" "Radio Comas, 1300 kilohertz amplitud
modula, 4880 nueva señal en onda corta, a todos los
oyentes del interior que nos escriban informándonos
como nos reciben. Escríbanos a Av. Estados Unidos 327
Urbanización........recibirán un recuerdo de
la emisora ..."
The s/off of Radio Comas Television was at 0455 with announce
of address and then National Anthem. (Nicolas Eramo, to
HCDX, August 21, 2000)
New Peruvian on 4880.8 kHz
A still unidentified LA station has been heard on 4880.83;
first observed at 1121-1150 poor signal on August 19, thanks
to a phone tip from Sr. Sejimo, a member of RNM.
The early morning px was composed of several typical Peruvian
folklore, and OM talk.
At 1127 a canned ID was given, however, I could copy a couple
of words due to weak signal: "Estación ... mil trescientos
... amplitud modulada y cuatro mil ochocientos ochenta en
onda corta banda de 60 metros .... desde la Provincia de ...
On August 20, the station began the morning transmission at
0959 with folklore, but no ID was given at s/on.
As far as I know, Radio Nuevo Mundo de Pucallpa was
formerly heard several years ago around this channel.
Radio Nuevo Mundo, which had been authorized to operate on
the nominal frequency of 4880 kHz with callsign OAZ8H, was
heard in the frequency range between 4881.5 kHz and 4881.7
kHz. So, this unidentified outlet is out of the Radio Nuevo
Mundo's frequency range.
According to an official frequency list of OA stations, issued
in 1999, no shortwave outlet is assigned on 4880 kHz, and
Radio Nuevo Mundo already cancelled its shortwave license.
More work needed on this outlet. (Takayuki Inoue Nozaki,
