News and Monitoring

Radio Bulgaria Monitoring via the DX-MIX Newsletter has published details of the cancelled and remaining transmissions of REE, operative from Nov 27, 2012.

I cannot really determine the exact pattern of cancellations, but of note is the deletion of most English broadcasts, with only one such transmission remaining 1900-2000 on 9605 for Africa.

The daily Spanish broadcast to Australia at 0900 has also disappeared!

It seems that some DRM transmissions remain remain, but with text only, no audio.

There has been wild and timewasting speculation in hobby newsgroups as to what is really happening with all this, as apparently no information has been released officially by the broadcaster on its Web site!

HFCC still lists the full B12 schedule, with no deletions.

Now, some monitoring here in Melbourne, which has been subjected to a great flood on Nov 28, and massive heatwave on Nov 30 when the temp here in Mont Albert reached 42 degrees!
