QSL: HJCA Cadena Melodía 730

Cadena Melodía in Bogotá is one of the most common Colombians heard in Norway on its AM frequency 730 kHz. That’s not surprising giving that the transmitter has a listed output of 100 kilowatts.

Cadena Melodía also used to be heard on shortwave 6140 kHz some years ago, but it seems like this channel has now been closed for good. My reports to the station, both on their shortwave and mediumwave outlets, have remained unanswered. That changed a few days ago when I received an e-mail from the station with a not too perfect verification text, but still “good enough” to be counted as a QSL. This was for a report from the January 2011 DX-pedition to Lista when conditions certainly weren’t favourable towards Colombia. We heard very few stations from Colombia or Venezuela on this DX-pedition, only the most commons ones like Cadena Melodía came through.
