This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The US and Russia are nearing completion of a new Strategic Arms Reduction treaty. A British court issued an arrest warrant for former Israeli Foreign Minister Livni on charges of war crimes in Gaza. Then several stories from the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen as of Wednesday, Beethoven's birthday, the deadline for the SWR. China says developed countries should make the biggest changes and that China will reduce greenhouse gas emissions regardless of the conference's outcome. A report was released saying that the majority of disasters in 2009 were weather related. China continues to increase the development of wind power to cut carbon emissions. China is opposed to the use of carbon tariffs as a way of achieving climate change goals.
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 letters@rnw.nl or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
A report on the environmental policies in Canada, where Prime Minister Harper has led the degradation of Canada's former pristine image. As world leaders approach Copenhagen, the Danish city has set itself as a model of carbon reduction, aiming for carbon neutrality by 2025.
From CUBA- In response to Obama's troop surge, the organization March Forward has called on all soldiers to refuse orders to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq. The US supreme Court has refused to hear a suit against Donald Rumsfeld and others for the torture of Guantanamo prisoners.
From RUSSIA- Japan has postponed the deployment of new Patriot missile bases. Arab nations are attending a conference to develop economic cooperation through the establishment of a new common currency. A commentary on reports of increasing use of heroin by US soldiers in Afghanistan.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at-http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net

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 < http://www.kzyx.org >
There are several other streams that work better- < http://www.freakradio.org >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://www.radio4all.net/responder.php/podcast/podcast.xml?series=outFarpress+presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at < http://www.rfpi.org >

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)
