From monitoring, with the benefit of relatively nearby SDRs (Argentina--unfortunately there are no Peruvian ones), there seem to be only 4 Peruvian tropical band stations left (4775, 4810, 4820, 4955) with a possible fifth on 4830 although I may be the only person who thinks so!  But according to the Peruvian government, as of 2021 there were 47, plus another 19 on 49m and higher (what they call "onda corta internacional" as opposed to "onda corta tropical."  https://www.gob.pe/institucion/mtc/noticias/583285-mtc-autorizo-funcionamiento-de-339-estaciones-de-radio-para-fortalecer-comunicaciones-en-zonas-rurales). Unfortunately I haven't found a straight-through listing of these mostly dormant if not imaginary stations, but you can look them up department by department at https://rnf.mtc.gob.pe/Radiodifusion.  Some of them don't have a razón social (d/b/a name), just some guy's name, and it's not clear if they ever went from authorization to operation, but they have call signs.  Interestingly, there's a Peruvian shortwave band plan by departments, which would have been useful back when there were a couple of hundred such stations, but hardly necessary nowadays.

Addendum- Some stations that seem to have abandoned shortwave still list the frequencies on their web pages, such as R Huanta 2000 (4755) and R Quillabamba (5025).

Thanks for the very interesting info! I am sure most of the 47 hold licenses but are not active. However, 4755 and 5025 are actually still active as of recently.

This is a list I have compiled based on loggings here on the HFU. It shows all the North American shortwave pirates heard in the month of March 2024. Note that many stations use multiple names so determining the number of actual transmitters in use is impossible. Some stations are also active so infrequently that they may not have been logged this month but may broadcast in the future. Stations are listed alphabetically and show the station name followed by the number of loggings in March 2024.

Most Active Station: Hikari FM (24/7)
Total broadcasts this month: 259
