    Today we have a special show on the violent conflict surrounding the city of Mosul, In Iraq, that directly or indirectly affects the Middle East.

    AUDIO N.1

    In the small city of Hassan Sham, some 30 kilometers northeast from Mosul, the scars left by the heavy fighting with ISIS are evident.

    The city was recently liberated by the Iraqi Army and the Kurdish Peshmerga, at the cost of its total destruction.

    The landscape is terrifying, and it’s very hard to get into. At control posts, just before reaching Hassan Sham from Erbil, the military advice never to drive away from the asphalt line, as there’re still many mines to deactivate.

    Once through, one reaches a massive refugee camp.

    Al Ghad is an independent radio station that provokes the Islamic State by airing anything from pop music to beauty advice and football news.

    It broadcasts from Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. All staff prefer to keep their location secret for security reasons.

    AUDIO No. 2

    “The project of the radio, one of its directors say started in 2015, few months after Daesh took over Mosul. Radio became one of the few ways of communicating for those who remain in the city...Al Ghad is the only of its kind...we faced many risks to reach areas where relay stations were placed...many times we successfully blocked Al-Bayan, the Califate’s radio and we even used their frequencies. It wasn’t a very continuous broadcast at first, but with success, came 24-hour constant broadcasting”.

    The program “I Am A Citizen”, allows listeners to inform what is happening in the areas under control of the Islamic State...here are some of the phone calls made women to the Station:

    -I can’t sleep no more...they died right in front of me, everything leads to death here, three brothers died on the same day...where something like that happens??

    -In our neighborhood Daesh bombs houses of the civilian population...today a house with two families was blasted…

    AUDIO No. 3

    The director says he thinks people believes in the station: “I notice due to the way they talk to us...I feel they have a lot of trust in us”. And we received also some threats by jihadists, but this only boosts our listenership’s numbers.


    And we continue in the region of Mosul.

    The Islamic State has lost propaganda capacity after losing several media outlets to Iraqi troops advancing into their territory.

    According to sources, 70% of ISIS media centers were destroyed in Mosul.

    Omar Salahaldin, an information expert from the Baghdad University, assured that propaganda was a vital part in the Islamic State’s plan to control the area and establish a caliphate.

    Some of that propaganda system included Al Bayan Radio, weekly magazine Al Nabaa, and had giant...

    Hello dear friends of Actualidad DX.com.ar the DXIng program aired weekly by RAE - Argentina to the World. Argentina’s International Short Wave Radio Station.

    Remember you can send your messages to actualidaddx.com.ar@gmail.com

    You can also write to us: RAE - CC555 - PO Box 1000, BA, Argentina.


    Let’s start with some hearings:

    Clandestine broadcaster Radio Itakuha, for Burundi, could be picked up via a transmitter located in Talata, Madagascar, on April 1, between 1800 and 1900 on 15420 KHZ, with 250 KW, airing programs for Southwest Africa, in Kirundi language. The station only broadcasts on Saturdays.

    AUDIO No. 1

    Religious station Lutheran World Federation, or Voice of Gospel, was picked up from the transmitters in Issoudun, France, between 1830 and 1900 on 15315 KHZ; with 500 KW, and programs in Fulfulde language.

    Another interesting broadcaster is Radio ERGO, for Somalia, via transmitters in Dhabayya, United Arab Emirates. The station could be picked up between 1200 and 1300 on 17485 KHZ with 250 KW for Eastern Africa. They broadcast 7 days a week.

    AUDIO No. 2

    We continue with Africa. We’ve got now some hearings by Spanish colleague Manuel Méndez, from Lugo. He reports:

    Radio Mali, from Bamako, on 5995 KHZ, between 1849-1910 UTC, in French and vernacular.

    Voice of Nigeria, via transmitter in Ikorodu, on 7255 KHZ between 1830 and 1845 in vernacular.

    And finally, Radio Hargeisa from Somalia, on 7120 KHZ between 1839 and 1847, in vernacular.

    AUDIO No. 3

    Now some news from our country.

    Recently, the National Communications Authority ENACOM, ruled in favor of Perfil, a publishing and media company, that had bidded for obtaining a broadcasting license that used to belong to former Radio America.

    The decision was informed by the board of ENACOM, that chairs Miguel De Godoy.

    AUDIO No. 4

    Perfil owns a building at the Edition and Design Cluster of BA City, built to house a newspaper, magazines, websites, two TV channels and two radio stations, one AM and another FM.

    The project of having a radio airing only news is linked to the history of the now defunct Radio America.

    Impresario Eduardo Eurnekian had bought it back in 1989, and he changed the name to América from Radio Antarctica. It had been also called Malvinas Argentinas and Radio Phoenix, when it was originally established in the 1920s.

    24-hour news stations are successful in various countries, but so far, in Argentina, there’s nothing like that.

    In Brazil, for instance, the prestigious CBN, Brazilian News Central, is third in ratings in the South American giant.

    The oldest broadcaster of this kind is New York’s AM1010 WIns, that marked 50 years broadcasting only news in 2015.


    We have now very sad news, that will be a blow to everybody linked to the world of shortwaves.

    Reverend José Holowaty died last March 26, as Swedish DXer Henrik Klemetz reports to us.

    Holowaty’s characteristic voice was transmitted via the now defunct KGEI Short Wave station in San Francisco, US.

    AUDIO No. 6

    Holowaty had been living in Paraguay, where he created Radio Broadcasting America.

    On the remarkable site: programasdx.com, there’s a file by Rubén Margenent from KGEI.

    On July 31, 1994, KGEI, the Voice of Friendship was coming off the air for good.

    But a little earlier, in 1991, they had broadcast programs tailored for DXers. The segments were only five minutes long, but they were aired several times a day. On 1305, 0335, 0705 on 9615 kHz and 0005 on 15280 kHz, produced and hosted by...

    Greetings dear friends of Actualidad DX.com.ar, the DXing program about DXing, broadcasting media and new technologies that airs every week through RAE-Argentina to the World, the International Short Wave Station of the Argentine Republic.

    We remind you that you can send your reception reports, suggestions, criticisms and comments to our email: actualidaddx.com.ar@gmail.com

    We also invite you to contact us via traditional mail, to RAE Argentina to the World, PO Box 555, Post Code 1000, BA, Argentina.


    RAE Argentina al Mundo keeps on incorporating new technologies and has now a new channel: AUDIONOW, that allows our listeners to follow our programs via their phones, at the cost of an local phone call.

    AUDIONOW is a system to connect stations with their audiences in far-off places, as an alternative to SW and internet. In the specific case of the US, online listening is made only where there’s Wi Fi networks near, since 4G and 3G services don’t have flat-price data plans, but they do have flat-price plans for phone calls.

    This radio-over-phone instrument is already used by other international broadcasters such as BBC, VOA, Radio Francia Internacional, Deutsche Welle, and the UN radio station.

    On this first stage, RAE Argentina to the World will work with Audionow in English and Spanish for listeners in the US who will be able to tune in on our full hour-long programs or on our news bulletins.

    Arrangements are being made to bring this option to Mexico and Canada in North America and Brazil in South America.

    There’s the intention also of including football broadcasts.
