San Francisco Solano was not easily audible in Lima, because
of tremendous QRM from R Huanta 2000 on 4746.7v kHz.
I first heard this new Peruvian broadcaster at 0200-0230
on October 15, 1995. Valses peruanos and greetings to listeners
in Sondorillo, Huancabamba, Ayabaca, Chiclayo etc. ID:
"Esta es la señal transmitida desde Radio San
Francisco Solano, la Voz de la Parroquia de San Miguel de
Sóndor y Sondorillo. Sigan con nosotros, porque estamos
siempre pensando en Ud. y su familia."
Thanks to Henrik Klemetz & Richard McVicar for this
tip (TIN) first noted Augsut 11 at 0110 with Venezuelan
"technopop" and extremely fast speaker. Greetings to listeners
in Huancabamba, Jaén, San Ignacio, Sónder
etc gave a rough idea of the location of this station, which
seemed to ID as "Radio San Francisco" 0135.
On August 12 s/on at 0000, slop from R Huanta 2000
on 4746.7 until their s/off 0050. QTH info: "estudios
ubicados en la parroquia de San Miguel de Sóndor".
At s/off 0236 mention of 89.1 and 4750. At s/off 0302 8/9
I clearly heard another word in addition to "Radio San Francisco"
and that the slogan was "La Voz de la Parroquia de San
Miguel de Sóndor y Sondorillo". The DJ bid goodnight
as Franciscan do, "Paz y bien".
On September 9 there was a slow-speaking DJ by the
name of Luis Alberto Castillo, hosting the show "Al ritmo
de la noche". Thanks to this gentleman and to my Almanaque
del Peru the ID was established as R San Francisco Solano
which is the name of a Spaniard who settled in Peru in the
16th Century, later to be canonized.
