"La Montana Colombia" was the name used to refer to an unidentified religious pirate operating on 4940 kHz AM. In September 2022 another TDoA was run using a better selection of receivers and the station was found to be in Venezuela (not Maico, Colombia). It is not known who operates the station or where its exact location is. The name "La Montana Colombia" originated when the station advertised a Colombian religious movie called "La Montana" and this was mistaken as the identification. The station operates 24/7. It seems that it uses relatively high power and or an unusually efficient antenna because it can be heard with a good signal nightly during winter in North America. Frequency is very stable and is close to 4940.00 kHz. It normally relays the programs of Fuerza de Paz and has also been mistakenly identified as such. One listener contacted the QSL manager of Fuerza de Paz about the station and received a reply stating that Fuerza de Paz does not operate the station or know its identity and the programs are taken from a website. Music played on the station is a mix of Colombian and Venezuelan origin. The station appears to be operating from an area very close to the border between those two countries. It has been heard giving the Venezuelan time, originally causing people to think that it is located in that country. No station identifications are ever given. Some have speculated that its reason for not providing an identification or contact method is to prevent DXers from bothering it with reception reports.
