Quincy, IL, and Bogota, Columbia - Jul 30, 2008 - With the installation of Broadcast Electronics HD Radio transmission equipment last month, Tropicana 102.9 FM became the first station in Columbia to transmit with HD Radio technology. The installation is part of a test granted under temporary authorization by the broadcast governing agency in Columbia, and was conducted in the country capital of Bogota, population nine million. The station is owned by Caracol Radio Network, one of the main radio networks in Columbia with more than 130 AM and FM stations. The Broadcast Electronics equipment is represented by Jaime Sorzano, owner of Broadcast Equipment and Parts in Columbia.

This is the first reported HD Radio installation in Columbia. The station uses a Broadcast Electronics FXI 250 digital FM exciter and FSI 10 HD Radio exporter into an existing BE FM 20S solid-state transmitter.
