Sad news for all DW –Radio Listeners. Deutsche Welle to discontinue the Shortwave Service in our region. Starting October 30,2011, there will be no linear DW Radio Programming in German and DW-Radio/English will only be available over shortwave in the future in Africa.
This will be a sad day for me as their Official Monitor for many years. I have been monitoring the shortwave signal in our region.
But this shouldn’t be a good bye. Looking forward to many years of contact.
