Voice Of Russia -- Former 'Radio Moscow' -- To End Shortwave Broadcasts:
Voice of Russia (VOR http://english.ruvr.ru/), the former Radio Moscow during the
USSR era, will cease shortwave broadcasts as of January 1, 2014. From the 1950s
through the 1980s, the station, as Radio Moscow, was a virtual beacon for
short-wave listeners (SWLs), many of whom gravitated into Amateur Radio. Voice of
Russia currently broadcasts to 160 countries in 38 languages for an aggregate 151
hours per day on short and medium waves, on FM, via satellite, and via the
Internet. Earlier this year shortwave transmissions were cut to 26 hours a day in
all languages, down from more than 50 hours a day in 2012.
VOR, which claims to be the first radio station to broadcast internationally,
will continue to broadcast online and via three medium-wave transmitters. In 2003
VOR was among the first major international radio broadcasters to launch daily
broadcasts to Europe in Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM http://www.drm.org/).
As a result of a decree signed earlier this month by Russian President Vladimir
Putin, the Voice of Russia radio company officially ceased to exist on December 9
and merged with several other state-run news agencies as part of Rossia Segodnya,
a Russia-based international news service. Putin's decree also abolished the
State Fund of Television and Radio Programs, placing it under control of
All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company.
