    Default BBCWS to close remaining shortwave transmissions to Europe

    BBCWS to close remaining shortwave transmissions to Europe
    February 12th, 2008 - 9:35

    The BBC World Service (BBCWS) announces on its website that the remaining BBCWS shortwave transmissions to Europe will close on 18th February 2008. The BBC says this change is being made in line with listener trends in radio. Increasing numbers of people around the world are choosing to listen to radio on a range of other platforms including FM, satellite and online, with fewer listening on shortwave. This is particularly the case in Europe, where the majority of shortwave transmissions ceased in March 2007. The current closures affect the remaining transmissions heard in southern Europe.

    Cit de fericit am fost inainte de '89 cind prindeam BBC on shortwave.Era nu numai un misloc de a afla ce se intimpla in lume,dar era parca si "casa" in care reveneam cu drag ori de cite ori veneam de la scirbici,pardon servici,ascultind atitea emisiuni interesante.De fapt radioul era pus tot timpul pe BBC,si indiferent ca eram ocupat cu alte lucruri,fondul sonor era tot pe englezi.Era un fel de terapie mentala in atmosfera inbicsita{ceausista}in care respiram si traiam in acele vremuri de trista amintire.
    Acum BBC inceteaza pe shortwave,dar in amintirea mea va ramine in "longwave".
    a short memento,Long live BBC!
