A news programme reporting on a remarkable number of closedowns and mysteries. You can see that several stations are starting to play with the web, though no-one is really sure about what they are doing. Radio Netherlands tests 7130 from an undisclosed location, the Nozema Christmas Tree, Radio Luxemburg ends shortwave analogue broadcasts, Victor Goonetilleke reports on protests to VOA transmitter site in Chilaw, Ethiopia being heard again, RIAS switched off shortwave, DW expands Nauen near Berlin, Austria pulls the plug on medium, Pete Costello launches a links lists. The URL's were so new we thought http:// was important enough to mention on the air :-). REE joins the web, alongside RTE in Ireland. Bethany gets a new life in Ohio. Chris Greenway at BBC Monitoring, reports on a longwave transmitter from Oslo remains on the air. Estonian radio puts mediumwave back on the air and Georgia has LW plans too. The show closes with Mike Bird’s propagation survey.
