Medium Wave (AM) Band Loggings from La Serena, Chile 2014 - 2020

I lived in La Serena, Chile for six and half years, and occasionally got to do some DXing from there.

My main DX radio had been a Sony SRF-M37V walkman plus a Radio Shack 15-1853 tunable AM band loop antenna. However, the SRF-M37V finally died on me and I was unable to resurrect it. I resorted to an SDRPlay RSP1 and SDRuno and an approx 50 ft. end-fed wire antenna up about 20 feet with a 9:1 transformer, with RG59 coax connected back into the RSP. Not ideal but it worked. Also, my later logs are not in chronological order, because I had started recording the whole AM band with SDRuno across the TOH, and replaying it at a more reasonable hour to see what I can dig out after the fact.

Although I no longer live in Chile, I continue to add loggings because I had made several band recordings in February 2020 which I can play back now as I have time, and listen for stations I hadn't previously logged.

Weak signal, hard to understand, but the "Radio Madre... enciende America Latina" announcement was quite clear. [Audio clip]. Also, it is beating against something else on the channel. Wonder what that could be? Only thing I can think of that's on 530 is Cuba which is very far away from here, or the Falkland Islands which are supposed to be off the air at this time of night. 3kW, M37V

Here is an article [click here] from 2005 explaining about how the station is illegal. But see the info below that indicates that it was eventually given permission to operate (though no call letters seem to have been issued).

Here's some interesting historical info from a facebook group, posted 15 Oct 2017: [Original here]:
Desde hace meses RADIO MADRE (AM 530 KHz), la estación de Amplitud Modulada operada Asociación Madres de Plaza de Mayo, se encuentra “fuera del aire por reformas edilicias y técnicas”, según informa la propia emisora a través de su página de Facebook. Esta emisora comenzó sus transmisiones el 16 de Noviembre de 2005, identificándose como “AM 530 La Voz de las Madres”. Tiempo después, obtuvo su reconocimiento oficial a través del Decreto Nº 721/07 de fecha 12 de Junio de 2007, mediante el cual se autorizó a la emisora a operar en la citada frecuencia de 530 KHz, con Categoría V, es decir, con una potencia diurna de 1 Kw, y de 0,25 Kw de potencia nocturna. El mismo Decreto establece que la estación deberá conservar como objetivo comunicacional “la promoción y defensa de los Derechos Humanos”. Según su Directora General, la Sra. Hebe de Bonafini, "La Voz de las Madres es la radio que un grupo de mujeres lograron construir tras el ansiado anhelo de poder comunicar su trabajo, darlo a conocer y ser conocidas por todos...". A partir del mes de Marzo de 2013, la estación pasó a llamarse "Radio Madre". Vale señalar que en los últimos años la emisora no era recepcionada de forma eficiente debido a una serie de problemas técnicos, cuyos parámetros oficiales aún no han sido resueltos por la Autoridad de Aplicación en cumplimiento del Decreto de Autorización. A consecuencia de ello, la emisora dejó de operar en AM desde hace meses, y por el momento, solo se puede acceder a su información a través de su Página de Facebook. Radio Madre opera desde unos modernos estudios localizados sobre la calle Pte. Luis Sáenz Peña 210 de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires. Teléfono: (11) 4382-9327.

CO La Serena - 4 Feb 2020 1700 - Tu Radio Popular -- Noticed this morning that the 1440 station that has popped up is now matching the web stream of what was formerly Radio La Serena 820 at www.radiolaserena.cl, but is now billing itself as "Tu Radio Popular 1440," Suspecting that Norterama (which owns both the 820 and 1440 licenses) had figured out how to broadcast the 1440 signal from the 820 site, I drove over to the 820 tower site to see. What I found was there is now a wire strung from the transmitter shack to the tower, attached just above the first set of guy wires. The signal was strong in the vicinity of the tower, so they're using the wire as an antenna for the 1440 signal. Counting this as a new station, since transmitter has moved several miles (RSP1/SDRuno) (New - #88)

CO La Serena - 3 Feb 2020 2330 UTC - Something has returned to 1440 kHz! One wonders what, because the 1440 kHz tower of R. Agricultura / R. Coquimbo was demolished almost two years ago. Broadcasting a futbol game (La Serena vs. Antofagasta). Audio quality is very bad (sounds like a telephone held up to the speaker of a radio receiver) with lots of skips and repeats, I guess due to poor digitization between studio and transmitter. Very low power, certainly not the power that 1440 once was. Perhaps it's operating from a wire antenna somewhere. (Tentative)

CO La Serena - 24 Jul 2019 1400 - R. La Serena / Tú R. Popular -- Station has been on and off the air over the last several months. It has been off for a couple weeks now, and I had time to go to the transmitter site and investigate. What I found was the ATU box is completely gone and it looks like something was excavated from underneath the concrete pad at base of the tower. Whether the stuff was salvaged by the owner or robbed by thieves, I don't know, but this station will probably not be coming back. A neighborhood of tomas (squatter claims with substandard shacks built) is growing ever larger and has encroached to the point that one of the outer guy wire anchors is now inaccessible. I have to wonder how long it'll be before the tower comes down (whether on purpose or not). It looks very unsafe in its current state. Meanwhile, the station continues to stream online as if nothing has changed, even mentioning the frequency of 820 AM... (Relog - Transmitting equipment gone)

CO La Serena - 10 Jan 2018 - Norterama Publicidad -- Just a note that this station, which had initially been IDing as "Radio Coquimbo" after it was acquired from R. Agricultura, then not IDing at all, and having all kinds of trouble with its signal and audio quality, is now IDing as "Norterama Publicidad" and giving a phone number of 51-2674414. Another ownership change? SUBTEL still thinks it's Agricultura. The station sound pretty good for now, so maybe the new owners know what they are doing. Also, the announcer sounds like the same person that had been doing the announcements for Radio La Serena (the now off-the-air 820 kHz station), so maybe the new owner is the same entity that had the 820 station. ( I can imagine that the 820 station was too much to rehabilitate, so they abandoned it and acquired the 1440 station from the people who were in way over their heads trying to run it....)

CO La Serena - 27 Nov 2016 1955 - R. La Serena -- This station had been R. Corporación / R. Portales (which I neglected to log as such...), playing religious type stuff. But now, ownership has apparently changed and is now playing a variety of music and calling itself "Radio La Serena," with frequent IDs and announcements. The call sign CA82B is according to the current SUBTEL list, references elswhere on the Internet have CA82A. SUBTEL hasn't updated the ownership information, which was out of date even before this change. The station sounds good for now, but a visit to the transmitter site shows the antenna is very neglected. The protective wall around the base of the tower is broken and anyone can get in there and climb on the tower. There are weeds and dirt around the base and the base insulator is chipped and looks like it is about to fail. I don't expect this station to last unless the tower receives some much needed attention soon. [audio clip] 10 kW (listed, but I'd be surprised if it running anywhere near that much).
