Heard fairly often since May 2002 on 6150.4 kHz. First noted
by Swedish DXer Kenneth Olofsson.
Finnish DX Jan-Erik Österholm says it is former Radio
Concordia de Arequipa that used to be on 6143v kHz. CPN
took over the station one year ago.
DXer Mika Mäkaläinen informs on DXing.info that
CPN also transmits on its main frequencies 1470 kHz (25
kW) and FM 90.5 MHz.
CPN is a newstalk station by format and is a respected news
institution in Peru. It belongs to the Grupo Gestión,
which is also known for the business newspaper Gestión.
The company employs some 250 professionals, of which about
100 work at the radio station.
The station is not located at the Paseo de la República
address given by the WRTH, but the Peruvian postal service
still forwards all mail to the correct address, which is
Calle General Salaverry No. 156, Miraflores, Lima 18. Peru.
