UnID 4830 AM 1015 UTC 04 APR 2024
« on: April 04, 2024, 1024 UTC »
Heard only once a week or so and always in the mornings, NW Argentina or occasionally Bonaire SDR (too bad there isn't one closer to Peru!) but never from the US, Spanish announcer, seems religious rather than commercial in music choices, thought I caught ID "Radio Nuevo ---" with an AM frequency but very poor down in the noise.  Last listed station was R Lircay but there's no longer any station by that name that I can tell, much less on SW.
Big into SWDX late 70s through early 90s, then forgot about it and when I returned via SDRs it wasn't at all what I remembered, but I'll deal with it. Grumble, grumble. All SDRs acknowledged, nothing is from my own radio.

4830 3 = 1610, so a MW harmonic seems likely.

Could be, and that Argentina SDR has a 3x harmonic from Chile on 4590 pretty consistently, but 1610 isn't much used in S America--https://www.mwlist.org/mwlist_quick_and_easy.php?area=4&kHz=1610.  But one of them is from Argentina and is religious, so the next time I get anything on 4830 I will check the fundamental. You may be right, but its QTH is much further from the SDR than the 4590 one is.

Another one I can compare the next time I hear 4830, but I only hear 4830 in South America so if it's a harmonic more likely to be something there rather than North America.
