    Default October Es - 89.7 Hope Radio Turks & Caicos

    A pleasant surprise today as I just happened to aim south with some 6 meter paths showing up and found E-skip in SS on 89.7. Between 12 PM and 2 PM 89.7 'CDN La Radio' from Santiago DR was in and out (once triggering RDS). I also heard 88.1 Primera from Santiago. I did not note any signals above 89.7 whatsoever.

    From 12:10-12:20 or so on my SDR recording, I had a station with some Gospel music in EE. I caught a couple of liners and it appears this is a fairly new station called 'Hope Radio' from the Turks & Caicos. Here is a clip:

    I'm not entirely sure when they signed on. They have a decent looking website http://www.hoperadiotci.com/

    Certainly one for other DXers to look out for who might have this channel open.

    Only the 2nd time I've noted Es in October into FM since 2005.

    Cool Nick! Hope Radio (ZHPE) was licensed last year, June 21, 2016. I've entered it in the FM database. Its only 500 watts. License document says broadcast radius is 6.39 miles.
