Starting tonight, Radio Progreso on shortwave

Radio-Progreso-CubaAccording to Arnie Coro at Radio Havana Cuba, the Cuban medium wave broadcaster Radio Progreso will begin an “experimental” shortwave broadcast on 4,765 kHz from 00:30 till 04:00 UTC on October 1st, 2013. For those of us living in North America, this broadcast will begin at 08:30 PM EDT tonight.

I will attempt to listen and record the broadcast tonight.

Many thanks to David Goren for the tip and for Bryan Mangawhai’s original report to DX lists.

    I live in North West Florida. Radio Progreso is sinpo 55555 here. The music is actually enjoyable and reminds me of the old days of Cuban music. I kinda hope it stays on air if for nothing else, to add variety on 60m. We are losing the international powerhouses, but maybe better programmed regionals will fill the void.

      Hi amigo !
      On what frequency do you pick Radio Progreso with the SINPO 55555 ?
      The 4765 kHz experimental Tropical 60 meters band transmission should
      also be a good copy at your location , because of the type of antenna
      in use .
