    It´s an evidence that shortwave is not dead as many people may think. CRI is occupying the frequencies space left empty for the main broadcasters. In spite I live in big city and in apartament I just get out it and with my Chinese Tecsun PL 660 and enjoy lots of transmissions as a local reception quality. It´s very impressive how the CRI is very strong and clear. Also I can listen to
    an American Catholic Global Network on the 15610 in the evening.

    Ah yes – found this the other day. At first I thought it was a pirate relay, but then found the info on the station web site. 75 Watts! Wow – I’m receiving it here 9 plus at times (unless it’s on 1KW already).

    Regards, David.
