QSL: Radio Monte Carlo 930

At the January 2007 DX pedition to Lista, we heard a number of stations from the La Plata region, for a change. Lista should be a good QTH for receiving stations from this part of the world, but we have never really erected antennas directed towards this part of the Americas. One of the stations which came through on the last night was CX20 Radio Monte Carlo in Montevideo, Uruguay on 930 kHz. Radio Monte Carlo is one of the big stations in Uruguay and probably one of the easiest AM stations to hear from this country. I have never succeeded in hearing them untill this January night, however. Nestor Larossa of the Departamento Técnico of the station sent me a very nice e-mail confirming my reception of the station. Nestor tells that the station uses a 50 kilowatts “last generation” Harris Destiny 3DX-50 transmitter and a dipole antenna which is 72 metres tall.
