Radio jammers off for one day
PALMA SORIANO, Cuba - January 25 (Virgilio
Delat, APLO / www.cubanet.org) - January
20 the residents of Palma Soriano in eastern
Cuba were able to tune their radios to foreign
broadcasts after the antenna the government
uses to jam their signals went out of service
for a day.
On that day, a Sunday, word spread from
mouth to mouth that foreign broadcasts were
coming in clearly and residents say they
were able to tune in to Radio Martí,
broadcasting from the US, Spanish National
Radio, and the BBC.
Residents were able to receive the broadcasts
until Monday evening, when the jamming antenna
was restored to service. The antenna is
located in a military installation on the
road to El Cobre.
