Radio Santa Cruz (Bolivia)

Radio Santa Cruz, transmitting from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia was logged on 18 June 2014. A selection of  vocal songs performed in Spanish and hosted by a male DJ was observed from 19.40 to 20.00 UTC. While Radio Aparecida (Brazil) operates on the same frequency I believe this to be Radio Santa Cruz. When I checked Radio Aparecida on 9.630 kHz only a running monologue was heard. Reception on 6.135 kHz at 19.40 UTC was (SINPO) 23422 -- weak signal, droning noise and fading with audible speech and music. At 20.00 UTC station splatter from firedrake overpowered signal.

Reception report was emailed the following day and followed up with a letter in Spanish.
