European Perspective - February 2004

  • Last update by PMo on Mar 10, 2014
Hallo from Florence, «European Perspectives» - by Luigi Cobisi at Italradio (read: Eeh-tahl-rah-dee-o) Newsdesk. is back for its second time. We've received very positive reactions after the first one last month and growing interest for our web portal in English. Thank you to all listeners. We started our report in January with medium and short wave cuts all over Europe. February has taken on the opposite some new entry in the same field. As from March 1st, 2004 Radio China International adds a new European MW frequency to the Italian Programme schedule. The new broadcast is scheduled at 18:00 UTC on 1458 kHz. The frequency is very likely coming from an Albanian transmitter used by China's international radio Italian programme also during the seventies. New MW frequencies are also coming from Hungary where the local media authority has assigned two MW channels to the National Catholic Radio to be operatted as from Whit Sunday 2004. The frequencies are 810 KHz from Lakihegy (pron. Lah-key-aegy) by Budapest, 1341KHz in provincial capital Siófok (pron. See-oh-fee-ohk) and 1341KHz in Szolnok (pron. Sol-nohk). Magyar Katolikus Rádió (MKR) address is postal code 3301 in Eger, P.O.Box 86 in Hungary. You can also have a look to their web site www.mkr.hu. But problems are always present as Radio Romania will close their Portuguese service in April due to financial and technical problems. The Portuguese service, which was established in 1958, currently broadcasts one hour a day for Portugal, and one hour for Brazil via shortwave, satellite and the Internet. Stoican added the six broadcasters affected, all Romanian, who lernt the language in Romanian universities or as visiting students in Portugal, will be transferred to other sections within the organization. In a interview with the Portuguese news agency Lusa, Radio Romania International Chief Editor Mrs.Stoican said that broadcasts in some other languages will also close, but declined to say which ones. Radio Romania broadcasts in 17 languages, among them Italian and English which will not affected by the new cuts. Italradio lernt programme most likely to be discontinued together with Portuguese are Bulgarian, Greek, Hungarian and Turkish. QSL lovers may find finally their way to get one from Radio Serbia and Montenegro in Belgrade. Radio Serbia and Montenegro announced the issue of a special QSL card marking their 70th anniversary on March 8th. Listeners are asked to contact the station between February 10 and March 10. A gift flag of the Radio station will be also available. Suggestions, reception reports and questions, just write to Radio Serbia and Montenegro, P.O. Box 2000, Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro or visit their web site: www.radioyu.org. The station broadcasts both in English and Italian as well as in other languages. Their main frequency over Europe is 6100 kHz. The English programme is at 22.00 UTC. Italian at 18.30 UTC. To America an English broadcast is at 01:00-01:30 on 7115 kHz.
