RMN Cagayan De Oro DXCC 828 Khz Additional Information
RMN Cagayan De Oro DXCC 828 Khz is an AM station of Radio Mindanao Network in the Philippines. The station’s studio is located in A, Velez., Cagayan de Oro City The main format of the station is drama, public service and news. Sometime in 1948, Don Henry R. Canoy, together with Robin Cui and Vicente Rivera, set up two home-built tube radio receivers bought from Fideng Palacio of Puntod and placed them in an abandoned chicken poultry house situated at the corner of Velez and del Pilar streets in Cagayan de Oro for the purpose of listening to radio broadcasts from Manila. Canoy and friends ended up listening to radio broadcasts at night when reception was better. Eventually, the friends were all convinced to build a radio transmitter of their own. The group managed to assemble a 30-Watt radio transmitter from surplus parts bought at Raon Street in Quiapo, Manila. Henry Canoy broke the airwaves as a Pirate radio station in 1949, declaring “This is Cagayan de Oro calling…”. Because the broadcast was not authorized by the Radio Control Office RCO, it did not contain call letters.
