This week, Radio Exterior de España (REE) suddenly dropped many of their analog shortwave broadcasts. I waited to mention this on the SWLing Post because, even though they were no longer on the air, I had heard no rumors beforehand and I had recently been in contact with them.
SWLer, Mark Coady, made a post on Facebook today with a message from REE stating that there was a lot of internal confusion and frustration regarding REE suddenly dropping shortwave services. They also mentioned that REE is planning to restore shortwave services again, possibly as soon as this weekend. I just received a short message from an REE contact to the same effect.
So, we will see if they restore services this weekend or early next week. I personally enjoy listening to REE’s services in English and French. I especially love their music, when they play it.
If you’re an REE fan, I suggest you contact them ASAP (email@example.com) and show your support. Though services are being re-established, shortwave broadcasts may be on the chopping block again in the near future.
