This station was easy to select as it was heard at home with only a small 3x7m ALA100 loop antenna and an SDR-IQ receiver and the listening situation was quite a surprise. I heard it"live" during a brief check of reception conditons. The frequency of 1470 is well known as an indicator channel of Trans Atlantic reception. When I checked the situationon October 3rd during the local sunrise time I soon realized that a station was interfering normally very strong Venezuelans (both Vibración and Llanerísima are often heard, the first one now being on 1469.995 and the last one on 1470.034). The Venezuelans played their National Anthem as usual at local midnight but a station with localy oriented program with a gentleman at the studio (with "mensajes" and beautiful Ecuadorian music) was intefering others - and soon it became to dominate the channel! Soon I heard also announcements with time check and ID "...minutos faltan para las zero horas ... 14-70 ... Ecos de Naranjito". The 3rd October was one of the best days to get Ecuadorians in Scandinavia. Many DXers reports to have heard several stations! The strongest stations at my QTH were on 1350 (TeleRadio), 1370 (Rocío), 1470 (Naranjito) and 1530 (both Dorado Deportes and Ondas Canaris). Below you can hear the announcement of the station - the clip shows how the Ecuadorian beats the stronger Venezuelans easily!
Best greetings to Ecos de Naranjito!
Felicitaciones a la Ecos de Naranjito!
