Sr. Marcello Carvajal, Japanese section of RAE (Radiodifusora Argentina al Exterior), informed Toshimichi Ohtake of JSWC, on November 3 that RAE is now at a crisis of closing shortwave transmission. Their only shortwave transmitter (probably Harris SW-100 at General Pacheco installed in 1977) is had its day, and will be soon unusable unless proper repairing is done. But Argentine government does not admit the budget for repairing. As it is, shortwave transmission will be closed after January 1, 2011. The director of RAE ordered all the sections to gather the mails from the listeners to protect their shortwave transmission. Those who are willing to continue RAE's shortwave service should send mails to dxrae2010 @ gmail.com.
