Save BNR Radio Bulgaria on shortwave and medium wave

Dear listeners and friends of shortwave and Radio Bulgaria, With a huge regret I'd like to inform you very bad news. 

After more than 75 years in the world broadcasting from January 31, 2012 at 2200UT Radio Bulgaria cease broadcasting on shortwave and medium wave.

The shortwave transmitters in Kostinbrod & Padarsko will be destroyed in the next few months.

Radio Bulgaria is not necessary now to its shortwave and medium waves listeners.

The reason

No money for broadcasting on shortwave and medium waves. And who listens to short waves today?
We have internet. Maintaining the shortwave transmitters was "Mission Impossible"! Hope dies last.

As a frequency manager in the last 19 years my main task was to provide best quality signal of Radio Bulgaria in worldwide coverage.
There will be no shortwave, there will be no frequency manager. For all people who work in Radio Bulgaria that bad news is shock and horror. Beginning of the end. But we expect your moral support.

What can you do?

  1. The link that you provided to sign the petiton has been hacked or taken over by the a Chinese page. I guess the chinese government does not like people listenning to shortwave and to be informed and hopes that everyone will be controlled like their people and to only listenen to state controlled radio and TV.
