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.
