Radio "Cima" or Radio "Sima" on 4962 kHz ?

Post by Jorma M{nty » Wed, 30 Sep 1992 17:01:27

A new station from Latin America can be heard on 4962 kHz.  The station
uses id "Radio Cima" or "Radio Sima".

Has anyone more info?  According to some rumours this could be Radio HIN
from the Dominican Republic.  However, the stn announces only 60 mb short-
wave frequency plus some FM-frequency - no mention of AM/MW 1220 kHz where
Radio HIN should broadcast.

The station was heard here in Finland on 4962,0 kHz at 0230 UTC with very
strong signal (QSA 3) indicating that the stn is using new transmitter &
antenna.

There is a Radio Cima lited in the WRTH in the FM part of the Dominican Republic
called radio Cima, and it is located in Santo Domingo I`m not however 100% shure
that this is that station. What is the FM frequency that they where announcing?
Does it corespond with the FM frequency in the WRTH? If it does that is a strong
indication that Cima is an Dominican Republic station.

When i heard it it announced something that sounded like (translated to english)
Brodcasting from the capital of Dominicana or Equadoriana, which seems to indicate
that is the radio Cima listed in WRTH.

If anyone else has any more information about this station it would be
most welcome.

It was heard in sweden around 0200 UTC with QSA 3 exept when giving the station call
on the hour when it was QSA 2.

It is Radio Cima, according to GEnie member Marc Crapsey who has done some
extensive monitoring of this new station.  Another GEnie member, Steve
Forest contacted the Dominican Embassy in Washington, and they confirmed
the station is Radio Cima, which operates on this frequency and on FM.

We have been monitoring this for the past month or so.  It seems to only
operate on shortwave on the weekends.  Has anyone heard this at all during
the week?

They seem to be really would up about the 500th anniversary of Columbus's
voyage with repeated shouts of quienento (500) over the music.

On a related note, the folks at GEnie have been tracking another mystery
station on 4871.2v the past couple of weeks. Anyone have any information on
this one.

There's a R.Cima listed in the FM section of WRTH-92.  There's been some
speculation this is the station on 4962.

Last weekend I heard the station in Finland as late as 07 UTC.
This is is a strong indication that the station really is from
Central America. I heard only "Viva Carriendo" (or something like
that) slogans between songs. Someone said the station is
from Honduras... don't know... latest Clusive says it might be
HIN, Sto Domingo.

I heard them on Saturday morning with fine reception.  However, on Monday-
morning Sept. 28th the stn was not audible despite satisfactory conditions.

On September 28th I heard Radio Centinela del Sur, Ecuador, on 4871,2 kHz.
The station closed down with very clear stn identification & Ecuadorian
anthem at 0339 UTC.  This stn has been heard in Finland on various frequencies
around the 60 mb (4770-4890 kHz) since last summer.  They must have troubles
with their transmitter as it seems to be drifting to a new frequency every
night.

Radio "Cima" or Radio "Sima" on 4962 kHz ?

Post by Anders Kleme » Mon, 05 Oct 1992 06:46:06

   A new station from Latin America can be heard on 4962 kHz.  The station
   uses id "Radio Cima" or "Radio Sima".

According to information obtained on the phone from station manager
Agrimensor (Surveyor!) Roberto Vargas, and also treasurer of ASDORA,
Radio Cima 100 (cien) relays the FM transmission (100.5 MHz) on
shortwave 4962 kHz, 1 kW, between 2100 and 1000 hours UTC.  

Their postal address is Apartado Postal 804, Santo Domingo.
The station appreciates reception reports, especially by fax, although
I can't recall the number at this very moment.  Nontheless, it can be
had through Andy Sennitt, of the WRTH.

As for their slogan, "Cima caneando", the second word is a reference
to the Dominican girls' band Las Chicas del Can.  "Canear" is a
completely new word not to be found in any dictionary, meaning
"dancing along in a festive mood" (as they do.)

I am sure Radio Cima would appreciate hearing from foreign listeners
in time before October 12th, which is the fifth centenary of the
discovery of the Americas, as they announce "proyectando la Republica
Dominicana en el quinto centenario."  They were indeed very friendly
on the phone.

specialist.)

P.S.  Special greetings to Risto Kotalampi och tack f|r senast!

Thank you very much for this information.  I think all dx'ers should remember
October 12, 1992, and the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus and his
"discovery" of America.

Radio Cima is not the only Latin American station using shortwaves commemo-
rating this anniversary.  I have noted that Radio Continente from Venezuela is
again active on short-wave after long silence.  Radio Continente can be heard
almost every morning here in Finland on 5030 kHz with "quinto centenario"-
slogans!

BTW, I think all dx'ers would be happy if there is any additional information
about new or reactivated short-wave stations in Latin America due to this
"quinto centenario".  If anyone has this information, he or she should not
hesitate to send it to rec.radio.shortwave.
