This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The United Nations Development Program praised China's plans to cut carbon emissions intensity by 40% by the year 2020, and their development of wind energy technology. Australia anti-whaling activists launched a new boat to combat Japanese whalers in Antarctic waters.
From NETHERLANDS- Radio Netherlands has eliminated shortwave broadcasts to North America. The decision is based on their surveys that find very few listeners in N America. If you ever listen to RN on shortwave, please let them know- by email to or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
Following President Obama's announcement of an Afghan troop surge, NATO members reacted to the call for their increased participation. Then a report from Afghanistan on the reaction there to news of the increased troop levels. In the Netherlands demonstrators took to the streets in opposition to proposed anti-squatting laws.
From CUBA- President Obama refused to sign a land mine ban that was agreed to by 158 other countries. Iraqi officials are reporting increased cases of cancer and birth defects since the US invasion in 2003. Nobel Peace prize winner Mohamed EL Baradei quoted the prayer of St Francis as he stepped down from his post as chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The countries in the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas condemned the Presidential election in Honduras. A Venezuelan journalist says that Colombia has plans to attack his nation.
From RUSSIA- Time magazine called the first decade of this new century as the worst in world history. BRIC, that is Brazil, Russia, India, and China, have threatened to boycott the Climate Summit in Copenhagen if their demands are ignored. There was a parade of 14 hydrogen powered cars in the run up to the Climate Summit in Copenhagen, none of them from US manufacturers. An observation on the British Iraq Inquiry, raising the question "Will the US have a similar public disclosure?"
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at-

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >
There are several other streams that work better- < >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed:// > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)

I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)
