I want to let you & your followers know of the shortwave summer schedule for Radio Exterior de España which they have announced on their recent transmissions.
I have a link below to a recording which I did a translation of, but I have provided a breakdown of their summer schedule…
Mon to Fri – 1500 to 2300 hrs UTC:
11685 kHz – for West Africa & South Atlantic
12030 kHz – for Middle East & Indian Ocean
Mon to Fri – 1800 to 0200 hrs UTC:
9690 kHz – for North America
11940 kHz – for South America
Same frequencies & target areas as Mon to Fri, instead transmission times are from 1400 to 2200 hrs UTC.
Just something to note of REE on shortwave. Myself & others have noticed that they sometimes transmit on frequencies not listed. I don’t know why this happens. My guess is that they sometimes have transmitter issues. I know that after the bad weather events which have affected the Madrid regions over the past year or so, some of their shortwave transmissions were absent for a while until they were restored. A couple of weeks ago, I was listening to their 12030 kHz & it suddenly went off the air. 9690 kHz was also off. The only frequency I could still receive was 11685 kHz, so maybe they are still having transmitter issues every now & again even though there have not been any recent weather related incidents affecting the Noblejas area. Maybe this might clear some doubt as to any confusion for unlisted transmissions.
