HCJB-6050 kHz

For shortwave listeners who wonder where the signal of HCJB‘s shortwave 6050 kHz transmitter from Pichincha  near Quito/Ecuador is: HCJB/Reachbeyond’s German service informed listeners of the German-language Fuer DXer program on August 29/30 that the Ecuadorian station was waiting for spare parts for repairs which were not available within Ecuador and had to be imported from the U.S.

The Fuer-Dxer bulletin was actually broadcast on shortwave – not from Quito, obviously, but on HCJB’s Germany’s mini relay station in Weenermoor, East Frisia, on August 29. Weenermoor is frequently audible across central Europe, on 3995 kHz and 7365 kHz.
