1995 present at the creation of “Cumbre”. Originally called “Jihad DX” by Hans Johnson in the sense of “supreme effort” instead of “holy war”. World Harvest Radio appreciated Hans about making it into a radio show, but asking for name change, as one of their staff member from Middle East pointed out that “Jihad DX” might be misconstrued by many people. Still wanting something connote high quality, Hans went to Spanish language and came up with “Cumbre DX”.
