This week's show features stories from China Radio International, NHK Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- China and the US completed the third round of strategic and economic dialogues in Washington. The EU has placed new restrictions on herbal products which may eliminate Chinese medicinals in most countries.
From JAPAN- A United Nations Climate panel says that renewable energy sources could supply 80% of global power needs by mid-century. More highly radioactive water has leaked into the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The Japanese government has told schools that burying the radioactive topsoil 18 inches below the surface will greatly reduce the danger to schoolchildren. About 60% of the nuclear reactors in Japan are currently shut down.
From GERMANY- As Germany moves toward shutting down all nuclear power plants by 2021, a motivating factor is the inability to insure for accidental damages. Millions of Greeks shut down major cities Wednesday in opposition to austerity measures.
From CUBA- US drone attacks continue killing people in Pakistan. NATO forces continue intense bombing of Tripoli while denying that they are attempting to assassinate Gaddafi. At the UN, Cuba condemned the double standards of some countries in protecting human rights. Ecuadoran President Correa says that opposition groups are delaying the counting of votes from last weekends referendum.
From RUSSIA- There is a renewed wave of protests in Egypt and Tunisia, indicating a failure of the regime changes in the so-called "Arab Spring."
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

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 evening at 6:30pm (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.(PST)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++

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)
