Subject: Message from Arnie about Radio Progreso Tropical 60 meter band

Dear amigo Wolfie:

Radio Progreso's successful test from October to December
of 2013 using 4765 kHz frequency registered to Cuba at the
ITU with 50 kW omnidirectional and high take off angle
antenna was completed on the last day of December and
starting January 1 2014 it is now a permanent daily service
7 days a week.

Under study now is the possibility of extending the on the
air time starting at 2300 UTC, so that the broadcast will
be from 2300 UTC to 0500 UTC.

As regards to reports received and QSL verification,
the station will issue a QSL card soon, and in the meantime
listeners who report correctly the transmissions will receive
a QSL letter.

Please note that the postal mailing address for the
60 meters Tropical Band reports is:

Radio Progreso
Atte: Transmision Banda Tropical
PO BOX 3042
Codigo postal 10300
La Habana

In the meantime I will continue to relay the e'mail messages
sent via Radio Havana Cuba's   <inforhc @ enet.cu>
to Radio Progreso's Chief Engineer Ing. Jose Antonio Fuentes
Beltrán that is going to be the person in charge of verifying
and signing the QSL letters now and QSL cards when they
come from the printer.

At this moment Cuba has on the air three short wave services
Radio Havana Cuba in eight languages using frequencies
on the 60, 49, 31, 25, 22, 19 and 16 meters bands.

Radio Rebelde on 5025 kHz 60 meters band

Radio Progreso on 4765 kHz 60 meters band.
