During Autumn the Peruvian station from Lima has been almost the easiest one here but like many years, in November - December the signal paths move to the Northern routes.
Radio Fórmula was heard a couple of times also this year in November and December with IDs like "Rádio Fórmula 14-70" so the program seems to be for this channel and not a Network one (or the ID was just during a local break?).
Anyway this is now a station for both November and December. The fact is that there has been rather poor period for DXing during the last few months - practically no new stations heard! That´s partly because of the reception conditions and partly due to several problems with equipment (hardware and software) and weather (strong winds with electric power downs for hours at the qth).
KING´S VILLAGE DX WISHES ALL A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

Sometimes Peruvian stations have good signals also in October - usually the best conditions have been earlier in September or August. Also this year RPP Radio Programas del Perú was audible several times on 1140 kHz. In the exact frequency is above the nominal (1140.25) which makes this one rather easy, although using simple antennas means also heavy interference from the European channel 1143.
Anyway it was nice to hear (again) this one. Actually, very few new catches this fall - partly due to unlucky listening (recording) sessions and maybe also due to the conditions which were a bit better last season.
According to several sources the location of the transmitter here should be Pilcomayo.
