December 1989

Among the most attractive OSLs from the early days of shortwave are those of Central and South America. Although some stations used letters, as many do today, most used very distinctive cards.

Now-silent Panama had many shortwave stations over the years, one of which was Radio Miramar whose 1938 OSL is shown here. Likewise Guatemala. This card is a 1939 card from the National Police Station, TG2X. Radio Delcar in Chiclayo, Peru is still active (listed on 1520 kHz, medium wave), but La Voz del Yaque in the Dominican Pepublic has been silent for many years. Note the power and frequency on the Yaque card - 5O watts on 6185. It wouldn't have much of a chance there today.
