Ecuadorian Navy Vessels at Guayaquil

According to Wikipedia, the CM13 is the guided missle corvette Los Rios and was built in Italy. Unfortunately numbers weren't visible on the other vessel.

Aeronautical DX - Colombia

Colombia was another country with easily logged airports in the 1990s. I heard around two dozen on three or four different frequencies. One of those was Pasto, which I later flew into in 2016. Unfortunately, I don't have a recording of that one. Here are two recordings from what I do have. The first is traffic between Ipiales and Popayan, two other airports in southern Colombia. The second is the airport on Providencia island, a small Colombian island in the Caribbean, unsuccessfully calling San Andres, a somewhat larger Colombian island. That is one of my all time best utility DX catches! And San Andres did come on about ten minutes later, so I got them, too.
