New Cuban Shortwave Station

progresso

Thanks to Bryan Clark for posting the following to the DX Dialog reflector:

While listening to Arnie Coro on “DXers Unlimited” via Radio Havana Cuba
on 5040kHz at 0520 UTC, he gave details of a new Cuban experimental
shortwave operation starting Tuesday 1 October.
Radio Progreso, Programa Nacional will operate with 50kw on 4765kHz from
0030 till 0400 UTC.
This means 3 shortwave operations from Cuba on 60 metres – the 100kw
sender on 5040 that RHC uses for English to 0600 UTC, the 50kw Radio
Rebelde on 5025 which I think is 24 hours, and the new Radio Progreso on
4765, also with 50kw.
If we’re lucky 4765 might squeak into NZ just before signoff at 0400 but
it may be a bit early I fear – will let you know tomorrow (or maybe
Wednesday if they’re talking local dates).
Arnie mentioned the website www.radioprogreso.cu and there’s an audio
stream there if you click on the headphones in the header.

PS: I hear Radio Progreso from time to time on MW frequencies 640 and
890. They play great Latin music
