Stations from Uruguay usually don’t make it to our listening post at Lista. As always, there are exceptions. During our last DX-pedition a number of the most common and powerful stations from Argentina and Uruguay were noted.
Radio Cristal del Uruguay is probably the most common station broadcasting from Uruguay these days. The station is heard quite regularly on 1470 kHz and had a good signal most nights at this DX-pedition.
My hopes for getting a reply was not very high, as the station has a reputation for not replying to reports from foreign DX-ers. But surprise, surprise: Roberto Estefa at the station sent me a friendly reply on Facebook. Radio Cristal transmits from Las Piedras just north of the capital Montevideo with a listed output of 15 kilowatts.
