Possible CME Impact.
A shock wave in the solar wind hit Earth’s magnetic field today, Nov. 25th, at approximately 0230 UT. It might have been the belated arrival of a CME that left the sun on Nov. 19th, hurled in our direction by an erupting filament of magnetism. So far the weak impact has not caused a geomagnetic storm.

Family Life Broadcasting System is selling its longtime Detroit properties to Catholic network Relevant Radio for $3.1 million.

The deal includes the property that houses WUFL’s three tower array since the station’s sign-on in 1988, but not the WUFL call letters, which will be transferred to another Family Life Broadcasting owned station.

Brazil

A solemn session in honor of 100 years radio jubilee in Brazil, celebrated in September, was held on Tuesday (Nov. 22) in the House of Representatives, in Brasilia.
The head of Empresa Brasil de Comunicação (EBC), Glen Valente, pointed out in his speech the evolution of the vehicle throughout the years and the new instruments added such as streaming channels [data transmission over the Internet] and podcasts , for example.
Valente talked about the work of Rádio Nacional da AmazĂ´nia, which broadcasts in short waves to that region, and mentioned the broadcaster’s social function, which he compared to a kind of “WhatsApp of the Amazon”. Since communication via telephone or internet is still precarious in some locations in the Amazon, EBC`s head explained that many listeners send messages to their relatives and friends through airwaves.
According to Valente, the radio continues and will always be a platform that everyone has to keep on investing in because it will always exist. “The other platforms will be added to the radio – an older instrument of communication in Brazil,” he said.

Brazil has more than ten thousand active radio stations.
