“Voice of Russia to return to shortwave October 1, 2014. A new schedule has been uploaded to HFCC from GFC for The Voice of Russia from 1st October including English to North America and Europe: http://hfcc.org/data/schedbyfmo.php?seas=A14&fmor=GFC“
I thought, perhaps, these were schedules posted prior to VOR leaving the air, but Stephen notes that VOR has posted and made constant changes to their B14 schedules as well. Stephen follows schedules closely as he has a website and app devoted to shortwave radio schedules.
This does seem like a lot of effort if VOR has no intention of returning to the shortwaves.
Stephen also points to this article which mentions that Russia may be bringing back shortwave and a new body might be in charge of operations.
I suspect if VOR is returning to shortwave, it is in reaction to the recent changes at the Voice of America/Radio Liberty and the promise that HR4490 might increase a pro-US presence on the air.
In the end, we might not know until VOR actually resumes shortwave broadcasts.
We will keep you posted! Follow the tag: VOR
