China Radio International, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.

Dear Radio Friend,

The latest Shortwave Report (February 10) is up at the website http://www.outfarpress.com/shortwave.shtml in 3 forms- (new) HIGHEST QUALITY (128kb)(27MB), broadcast quality (16MB), and quickdownload or streaming form (6MB) (28:59) Links at page bottom

(If you have access to Audioport there is a highest quality version posted up there {35MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.

From CHINA- Like much of the world, China is facing a future with a need for more fresh water. Desalination of sea water is increasing, but there are many serious problems with this method.

From JAPAN- There has been an increasing rise in the temperature of one of the reactor cores at Fukushima- attempting to cool the situation with water has not yet been effective. High levels of cesium have been detected in earthworms over a hundred kilometers away from the Fukushima reactors, thus entering into the food chain. Japan's nuclear safety agency plans to approve stress tests on two nuclear reactors, but the local population is very skeptical. S Korea has resumed negotiations with Turkey to build new nuclear reactors on the Black Sea coast. Pakistan has told Iran that it wants to go ahead with a natural gas pipeline despite objections by the US.

From CUBA- Wednesday saw 10 more Pakistan civilians killed by US drone missile strikes. In the Armed Forces Journal, a US soldier has contradicted positive reports on accomplishments in the war on Afghanistan. There is to be an expansion of US Special forces in Afghanistan. Then a Viewpoint on the 50th anniversary of the US blockade against Cuba.

From RUSSIA- Russia, along with China, vetoed a UN resolution about Syria, saying that the Western media is misrepresenting the ongoing civil war in the country. Anonymous, a loose-knit collective of hackers are breaking into government agencies like the FBI, Brazilian Banks, and Swedish government sites- they claim their actions are to preserve freedom of speech.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.

NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via http://www.kzyx.org >

There are several other streams that work better- http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)

NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from
I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
