from what may be Querillos, probably in Departamento San
Heard on 5175.5 kHz on April 20, 2001, between 1100 and
1115 UTC, with it´s premiere transmisson on this Friday
Started at about 1100 UTC with tremendous strength but unfortunately
the DJ's microphone produced a dull and distorted audio.
I am not 100 percent sure that the station transmits from
Querillos. The DJ says the following: "....de L.P.C., la
radio, que está transmitiendo desde Girón y Bilgrau, Manzana
18 lote 11" (address in Querillos?) and "....transmisión
de prueba de esta (ciudad de?) Querillos....".
Announces its frequency as 5175 kHz.
It is possible that L.P.C. only has taken over the rights
to this frequency, as I, in
December, 2000, logged Radio Máster in Moyobamba, Dpto San
Martín, on 5175.85 kHz.

Heard as Radio MPC (or NPC?) on 5175.8 kHz on April
21, from 2321 until close down at 0250 UTC.
Transmitting from what sounded like Guerillo (?), in Provincia
The name of the district still unclear to me, but as address
the DJ announced "Jirón Miguel Grau Manzana
18, Lote 11, en este Centro Poblado de Guerillo?? en la
provincia de Moyobamba, Departamento de San Martín".
Then continued with messages and greeting to listeners in
Naranjos and Soritor, also mentioned that the owner is José
Fernandez, who is living in Naranjos.
Gave the official frequency as 5165 kHz, with a transmission
April 21, 2001, via Conexion
Nothing in Peruvian gazeeter that looks like "Querillos"
in San Martín or neighboring departments. Closest
sounding would be Mariscal Castilla, which is near Chachapoyas
in Amazonas Dept.
Not finding it doesn't mean much, though, as this area is
constantly getting new towns as more settlers move into
the upper Amazon.
