I just bought a really neat (and tiny and best of all CHEAP) portable shortwave radio receiver from Radio Shack which I’m really enjoying. I’ve listened to SW radio in the past but this is the first time I’ve owned a receiver with a digital frequency display which really makes tuning into a particular broadcast much easier.

So far my favorite channel to tune into is Radio Habana Cuba (click here for the English-language version of their website).

You can tune into their broadcasts at…

0100-0500 UTC: 6000 khz, 9820 khz (or 7-11 p.m. Central time)
0500-0700 UTC: 6000 khz, 6060 khz, 9550 khz (11 p.m.-1 a.m. Central time)

(Thanks to Cobalt Pet for this schedule.)

Also here’s one of the stories currently being discussed in today’s RHC news broadcast…

Radio Habana Cuba: Going Back in Time, U.S. Develops New Hydrogen Bomb

(Of course I understand that RHC is biased in favor of the Cuban government, but I think it is probably not much worse than we have in America where the corporate interests control what we hear.)
