BBC MONITORING INTERNATIONAL REPORTS: SOMALIA: SPARE PARTS SENT TO RADIO GAALCAYO

Text of press release by Cumbre DX on 15th May

Tucson, Arizona, 15th May: Cumbre DX has just sent tubes and other spares to the Somali station Radio Gaalcayo. The station has been on since 1993 and the spares were desperately needed to keep them on the air. Radio Gaalcayo can be heard daily from 1000-1200 and 1600-1700 UTC on 7012 kHz. As part of Cumbre DX's on-going efforts to help both DXers and DX stations, the parts were shipped today and should reach the station by early next month.

Cumbre DX is eager to partner with other organizations that are interested in helping small stations. A prime example would be Radio Miskut in Nicaragua. This station is currently off the air which means that the country of Nicaragua is no longer on shortwave. It seems that just a few spares will get both this station and country back on shortwave. If you are interested, you can reach me at hansj@worldspy.net
