Interesting situation with Ukrainian Radio’s relay via Lithuania on 1386 kHz. It seems that Radio Baltic Waves International relays the stream of Radio Ukraine International, not that of the UR’s First Channel. In March-May, both streams were identical, but some differences have appeared over the past month. At 21:05-21:30 UTC (approx.), there is a Russian language show called ‘War and the Russian world’ (probably an allusion for Tolstoy’s ‘War and peace’).

RUI’s schedule (for example features short news bulletins called ‘Ukraine: Security Issue’ in Belarusian, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Slovak and English (the latter one is also heard on UR’s frequencies in Ukraine) at 21, 21:20, 22, 00, 02, 04 UTC. The schedule is very volatile. I can confirm the Polish language block at 22 UTC. The MW frequency has been mentioned even by the host. News in the aforementioned languages must be relayed on 1386 kHz as well (between 21 and 03:30 UTC).

Important notice: RUI schedule on UR’s web site shows correct programming only for previous days, not for the current or next ones.

CHRISTMAS comes to High Point.
Following the closing of their purchase of 1230 WMFR and 104.5 W283CV High Point NC, Triad Media Partners has begun stunting with Country based Christmas Music as “The Christmas Channel“.
Triad Media Partners agreed to acquire WMFR/W283CV along with 920 WPCM Burlington-Graham/104.5 W283BT Burlington in January from Curtis Media for $925,000. WPCM/W283BT flipped to Christian AC “Hope 104.5” in April. WMFR/W283CV had been simulcasting Sports 600 WSJS Winston-Salem.

Summer solstice bandscan.
I got out just after midnight. By then it had stopped raining and the sky cleared. Barely a breeze, and bright enough to read quite fine print. I was lucky. The clouds began drawing up again soon after I
returned inside.
The LW band… same old, same old. Allouis was quiet enough for me to hear Daventry’s cross modulation.
The MW band was a bit livelier than I had expected. I did have to turn up the volume control on the Panasonic radio, but I did hear the usual Brits, except for Wales on 882 kHz. I also managed to hear Smooth R. on 1152 and 1161 kHz, Gold on 1548 and 1458 kHz, and the Absolute R. relays on 1197 and 1242 kHz; the latter very weakly. I also heard Spanish radio on 855 kHz and a few others whose frequencies I soon forgot.

Cadena SER have announced they are closing on medium wave across Spain.

Mike Terry to WRTH FB group (2022-06-19)

(Translated from Spanish) As they have said in some groups it’s not a closure as such, just that the technicians will stop repairing the transmitters that are going to malfunction with which the MW network of the SER Chain will slowly die… Sad ending.
