Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Ed, who has kindly downloaded and processed this Radio Exterior de España interview with Javier Sanchez, the Head of European Spectrum Strategy and Research and Development for REE.
The interview covers REE’s spectrum strategy and also the closure of shortwave radio services on October 1, 2014. While Mr. Sanchez is focused on delivering content via new channels (DAB and IP radio, for example), he believes it is a mistake to close all shortwave radio broadcasting as it still has both financial and content delivery advantages over newer methods.
Listen to the full interview via the embedded player below:
The part of the interview focusing on REE’s shortwave radio service begins at 13:30.
From October 28, Radio Exterior de España will permanently conclude its shortwave transmissions from its relay station in Cariari, Costa Rica. At the same time, from that date, broadcasts from its transmitters in Noblejas, Spain will be considerably expanded.
These changes will affect those listeners in Central America, North America and the northern part of South America’s Southern Cone who tune us.
In the coming days, we will post and announce our new frequencies and times in which you can hear Radio Exterior de España on our webpage and programs.
73s Marty Delfín, Madrid, Spain
