WRNO Testing  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, July 22 2008

Surely you did have WRNO, as reported by others with same music at same time; even if no IDs.

EiBi July 20 update shows for 15590:
15590 0900-0930 J NHK Radio Japan E SAs
15590 0000-2400 USA WRNO Tests E NAm

However, WRNO is authorized for 15590 for shorter hours, per Aoki:
15590 WRNO New Orleans 1400-0100 1234567 English 50 20 09007W 2950N
which also has Japan at 0900-0930 as the only other station on 15590.

And FCC shows the full authorized schedule for WRNO as:
7355 2200 0400 WRNO 50 20 3-5,9-11,17 1234567 300308 261008
7505 2200 1600 WRNO 50 20 3-5,9-11 1234567 300308 261008
15590 1400 0100 WRNO 50 20 3-5,9-11 1234567 300308 261008

But it looks like they will not be using 7355, and not using the other frequencies to their full extent at first. 73, Glenn Hauser

Cuba broadcasting ripped  View Printable Version 
Monday, July 21 2008

Maybe the US government can now spend more time broadcasting to it's own people explaining what they are doing with the disgusting mess we have going on with our failing economy and war presence in the Persian Gulf. Rather embarrassing to criticize other governments when we ourselves are in need of reform.

For myself I much prefer listening to the Spanish language broadcasts coming out of Cuba via RHC than what the USA is pumping into Cuba via Radio Marti.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Cuba broadcasting ripped

Posted July 16, 2008 6:30 AM

by Andrew Zajac

The U.S. government's long and troubled history of trying to broadcast TV
and radio programming into Cuba added another unhappy chapter with
release of a Government Accountability Office report critical of efforts to use

commercial broadcasters to beam Radio and TV Marti signals into the

No-bid contracts awarded in December 2006 to transmit programming via
Radio Mambi and TV Azteca "did not reflect sound business practices",

GAO investigators found.

The GAO also criticized a lack of transparency in the way Miami-based
Office of Cuba Broadcasting recruits and pays for production and on-air

OCB defended the contracts to Mambi and Azteca, arguing that the U.S.
urgently needed a way to reach the Cuban people because of the
deteriorating health of president Fidel Castro (pictured above).

The government watchdog inquiry was requested by Massachusetts
Democratic Rep. William Delahunt, a longtime critic of the broadcasting
regime, as well as of the U.S. economic embargo against Cuba.

Delahunt is part of an increasingly vocal faction in Congress who view the
Cuba broadcast operation as a financial sop to the politically influential
Cuban exile community in Miami rather than as a serious effort to engage
the Cuban people.

Delahunt said the GAO findings are troubling. He noted that an agency
investigation into the OCB's management continues and he promised more
scrutiny of the Marti broadcast operation.

Here's a 2006 Tribune story offering a broader overview of some of the
shortcomings of the Cuba broadcast effort:

TV And Radio Marti Contracts Under Fed Scrutiny

Cuban Radio Bids
WASHINGTON (CBS4) ? In a report issued Tuesday, the Government
Accountability Office said the International Broadcasting Bureau failed to
follow proper federal contract procedures when it it authorized no-bid deals
totaling $ 1,069,451 for local stations that air Radio and TV Marti broadcasts
to Cuba.

In response, IBB officials said they decided against publicly seeking
competitive offers because theydid not believe they would get satisfactory
responses from other potential providers. They also said they feared the
move would alert the Cuban government, which would be better able to jam
the broadcasts.

The report is the first in a series of GAO studies on the operations of Radio
and TV Martí, which beam commentary, entertainment and news to Cuba
under the Office of Cuba Broadcasting, which is based in Miami.

The report also is part of a broader investigation into the U.S.
efforts to beam news and other programming into Cuba.

The U.S. has sought to provide alternative news and information to the
communist island since the 1980s, and its efforts have long been
