"......Philippines relay will close
In FY 2017, TSI completed the closure of the station in Sri
Lanka and in FY 2018 will close the BBG facility in Poro,
Philippines. TSI's systematic and thorough review of all
transmission leases will continue in FY 2019, identifying further
opportunities for savings....."

But good news for Kuwait and Greenville stations
"As part of its multi-year global network realignment, TSI will
continue to focus efforts on upgrading its shortwave capacity at
the Kuwait Transmitting Station, even as use of SW decreases.
With superior strategic location and extremely low operating
costs, this station will be able to serve the overwhelming
majority of legacy SW audiences in the most cost-effective manner
possible, at a fraction of the cost of other BBG operated site or
expensive leased capacity. …

"TSI will install and deploy three newer SW transmitters at the
Greenville, NC Edward R. Murrow transmitting station enabling a
doubling of frequencies servicing Cuba and making it extremely
difficult for the Cuban government to effectively block Radio
Marti signals into the Island. …
