Colombia / Venezuela

There has been discussion in Cadena DX, the Latin American Facebook group, on the VOA programs via Radio Libertad 600 kHz in Barranquilla, Colombia. Santiago San Gil in Barinas wrote that normally Radio Libertad was received there with “acceptable signals” but that since the programs began there has been significant co-channel interference. Fernando Viloria in the coastal Venezuelan state of Carabobo says he has been hearing an unlisted station calling itself “Radio Verdad” and “La Emisora de la Alegria” on 600 kHz. The station has not announced a location. Several DXers wrote of tuning the Radio Libertad programs on the remote SDR in Bonaire. They report it is putting in a good signal to Bonaire.

WNRP 1620 kHz Gulf Breeze/Pensacola, FL Update – Hurricane Sally Aftermath.
Monitoring at my Atlanta, Georgia Location tonight, WNRP 1620 kHz from the Pensacola, Florida area is on the air and still over riding co-channel, higher power Radio Rebelde, Cuba. It has been on tonight with continuing Hurricane Sally aftermath coverage in the Pensacola, Florida area primarily focusing on the Three Mile Bridge section collapse (a vital travel route in the area) and the numerous power outages, etc.
WNRP on 1620 kHz and 92.3 FM had been off and on throughout the last day or two due to power outages in the area. It was trying to broadcast on sister station WEBY 1330 kHz and 99.1 FM with varying success. The internet streaming service has also been intermittent.

Poland

Public broadcaster Polish Radio is set to launch a special news service for
listeners in neighbouring Belarus, where post-election protests have grown
against longtime strongman leader Alexander Lukashenko.
The management of Polish Radio says news broadcasts in Belarusian on Polish Radio 1 will help keep listeners beyond Poland’s eastern border informed about what is happening in their country amid limited access to reliable information.
Thanks to transmitters at a broadcasting centre in Solec Kujawski, north-central Poland, Polish Radio 1 can be heard on 225 kHz long wave almost throughout Europe, including the entire territory of Belarus, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency has reported.
Special news programmes produced by the Belarusian section of Polish Radio’s External Service will be aired on Polish Radio 1 three times a day: at around 6:30 a.m., shortly after noon, and just after 10 p.m.
The initiative aims to provide Belarusians, including those living in areas where there is no internet access or facing limitations in connectivity, with easy access to up-to-date and reliable information about the situation in their country and the response of the international community, Polish Radio executives have said.
“Offering support to the people of Belarus in these difficult times, and showing solidarity by providing reliable and true information, is part of Polish Radio’s mission as a public broadcaster,” said CEO Agnieszka Kaminska.
Broadcasts are due to start this Saturday, August 22.

Poland

Anatoly Klepov informs:
“The management of Polish Radio made a decision to urgently modify the existing broadcasting network and to include on the air of the first program of Polish Radio special news bulletins in Belarusian, dedicated to the situation in Belarus. With the help of the repeaters of the Radio Broadcasting Center in Solec-Kujawski, the first program of Polish radio will be available on long wave on the frequency of 225 kHz throughout almost all of Europe including the whole of Belarus. Special news bulletins prepared by the Belarusian Service of the Polish Radio for Abroad will be broadcast three times a day: at 7.30, 12.00 and 23.00 Minsk time.
The Belarusian language news bulletin will be aired in the program “Polska i Świat” (“Poland and the World”). News broadcasts will begin on Saturday, 22 August.”
