King´s Village DX-Station April: Radio Universidad Cusco, Perú

To get a new station from Peru is always nice. Actually it seems that new MW-stations appears quite often in Peru - nice as the trend in Europe is to close the stations (which is of course good for us hunting the real dx!). Anyway it was a surprise to capture this one. First it sounded this could be Lima (Radio Fé) but soon there was an announcement "...desde Cusco" which made me listening to it more intensively - and indeed they were saying "Radio Universidad 1220 Aplitud modulada". That made me to look at the WRTH and there it was really. Never heard about that before. Thanks to Henrik K. who also verified the ID. The station was heard also by PUL in Finland at the same time, but I have not seen any other logs in Finland. Thanks for info from Sweden: SIM & FD have heard the station in February 2013. It seems that the station has not been on AM for a very long time.

Saludos a Radio Universidad Cusco!
