Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s economy has collapsed and the country has almost run out of fuel.
From tomorrow 3 hour per day rolling power blackouts are being imposed.
Unless broadcasters are exempt or have their own back up diesel generators there may be temporary radio silence.
The power cuts don’t seem to warrant a mention on the SLBC website!

Ukraine

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 http://ukr.radio/schedule/by-date.html?channelID=4&date=2022-06-24) 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.

Spain

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.

Reception reports: We are still happy to receive reception reports for our 648 AM service.
You will find a report form on our 648 AM page.
Radio Caroline returned to the medium waveband on 648 kHz AM as a legal broadcaster at the end of 2017, after applying for, and being granted, the Ofcom licence for the Essex and Suffolk areas of South Eastern England.
In July, 2021, Ofcom extended our licenced areas to parts of Kent and East Sussex, and increased our licenced ERP (Effective Radiated Power) to 4 Kilowatts. Our (second hand) Harris transmitter is housed at the former BBC World Service site at Orfordness, an irony not lost on us. You can read how we came
