``We inform you that on December 4 and 5, Radio Exterior de España
will be forced to suspend its shortwave broadcasts. The reason: a cut
in the electricity supply, beyond our control, which will affect the
shortwave broadcasting center that Radio Exterior has in the town of
Noblejas. The stoppage is due to some work that the Unión Fenosa
company has to carry out in the electrical substation of that Toledo
municipality and that will affect our facilities. Consequently, the
shortwave broadcast will be suspended next Monday, December 4 and will
continue until Wednesday, December 6, at most, when the signal will
resume. We apologize for this incident, completely beyond the control
of Radio Exterior de España.
THANKS EVERYBODY, GREETINGS. Director of Foreign Radio of Spain``

** SWITZERLAND [non]. 17790, Nov 26 at 2100-2200, another C.M. Obrecht
music special, as publicized, wider variety of music than he is known
for, electronic compositions. With many announcements in German and
heavily accented English. Sufficient signal into Brasília SDR, except
it times out every 15 minutes, and fake stereo mode SAS enhances. This
is via WRMI-7 which is otherwise only for the Radio Africa Network at
15-21, just extended an hour; still on 160-degree beam toward S
America, hoping some of it will reach Africa anyway, lacking a
long-destroyed proper antenna thataway. At 2200 nevertheless starts to
play a R. Africa s/off before chopped (Glenn Hauser, OK, WOR)

** TURKEY. 5960.005, Nov 26 at 2317, VOT English not off the air,

few notes: 2317 ``always-by-your-side`` promo; 2325 `Weekly Analysis`
outro; 2329 multi-lingual ID filler reel. Back to the non-squealing +5
Hz transmitter, rather than the +17 Hz squealer yesterday.

great view; 2344 ``with-you-every-hour`` promo, music; 2350
multi-lingual ID filler reel crutch, again; 2352, s/off with partial
English schedule omitting this one, but at least correct times and

varying much, instead of ATATT. 6160- not measured but something else;
and 3265+ as usual silent. Harry Shearer tripping over his tongue more
than usual as I am concerned about his health; must require multiple
