CRI loses interest in broadcasting to W Europe  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 11 2021

wb recently enumerated a number of languages, some European, but not all
of them, that were converted by CRI to music. Related but vague: From
Radios du monde on disgraced FB today 11 hrs ·

Radio Chine Internationale ne centre plus ses émissions sur ondes
courtes vers l'Europe occidentale. Les émissions européennes viennent de
se terminer. Il faut dire que la Chine avait déjà marqué son intention
de recentrer ses activités vers les autres continents, dont l'Afrique.

Il y a quelques années, ce fut le cas pour les émissions sur ondes
moyennes : Lors de l'arrêt de son relais via les émetteurs de BCE à
Marnach , la Chine avait clairement dit qu'elle ne souhaitait pas
remplacer l'émetteur, malgré les offres qui avaient été faites.
Ses installations à Shtermen, au sud du centre émetteur de Radio Tirana
à Cerrik en Albanie, ont continué de fonctionner jusqu'à la fin du contrat.

Les seuls investissements réalisés ont consisté à la modernisation de
son relais en Afrique : Bamako héberge ainsi le principal émetteur à
ondes courtes permettant à RCI de diffuser ses programmes à travers tout
le continent africain.

Largement impliquée économiquement dans la région, la Chine veut
également contrôler, par tous les moyens, son image par le biais de
l’influence médiatique.

Une présence par les ondes courtes, mais également en FM et par la
création de bureaux et de centre de production dans différents pays.
Des stages de formation sont organisés, à grande échelle, pour former
les journalistes africains en Chine.

Google translation edited and improved by gh:

China Radio International no longer focuses its shortwave broadcasts on
Western Europe. European broadcasts have just ended. It must be said
that China had already indicated its intention to refocus its activities
on other continents, including Africa.

A few years ago, this was the case for medium wave broadcasts: When
shutting down its relay via BCE's transmitters in Marnach ,
China made it clear that it did not want to replace the transmitter,
despite the offers that had been made.

Its facilities in Shtermen, south of Radio Tirana's broadcasting center
in Cerrik, Albania, continued to operate until the end of the contract.

The only investments made consisted in the modernization of its relay in
Africa: Bamako thus hosts the main shortwave transmitter allowing CRI to
broadcast its programs throughout the African continent.

Largely involved economically in the region, China also wants to
control, by all means, its image through media influence.

A presence via shortwave, but also vis FM and by the creation of offices
and production centers in different countries. Large-scale training
courses are organized to train African journalists in China.

Last remaining medium wave in North Macedonia  View Printable Version 
Saturday, September 11 2021

The last remaining medium wave in North Macedonia [810 kHz] has failed
at least since August 14, 2021. According to gossip from the region, the
cause in this case is external.

Accordingly, the transformer station of the broadcasting station Ovce
Pole was damaged by bush fires. The repair or replacement of the
destroyed system parts is solely in the hands of EVN Makedonija, the
responsible network operator.

This would mean that the medium wave would be as good as empty during
the day in Thessaloniki as well. The stations on 972 and 1368 kHz, which
can still be heard quite well there, are two of the medium wave pirates
who are practically permanently active in Greece and ignored by the
authorities. (translated from radioeins.de via mediumwave.info)
