It’s been several days now since the Greek government tried to shut down Greek National TV and Radio broadcaster, ERT. In fact, ERT was only off the air for a few hours; they immediately set up a live Internet stream and restored shortwave service to the Voice of Greece. They’re still going strong and, evidently, expanding.
SWLing Post reader, Christos, lives in Greece and has been keeping us up-to-date with field reports. He writes:
This day [Friday] the employees of ERT took over the frequencies of medium waves 666 KHz, 729 KHz, 981 KHz, 1008 KHz (Corfu) and 1404 KHz (Komotini), that the previous days remained silent.
Short waves (9429 KHZ) and 1260 kHz from Rodos Island continue active.
[There] are now two radio channels in operation.
