Dear Friends: Recently we have been studying propagation conditions and sunspot numbers, and the predictions for the following months, and we have come to the conclusion that we need to use lower frequencies to provide the best reception in our target areas until we reach the lowest point of the 11-year solar cycle, which may be at the end of the year 2019.
Because of this, we are going to change our frequency of 5950 kHz in the 49 meter band to 5010 kHz in the 60 meter band. Although 5950 kHz has been working well for us, we expect even better reception conditions with 5010 kHz in Cuba, the Caribbean, and other parts of Latin America where our signal reaches. The change will take place next Monday, May 14, at 2200 UT. As of that time, we will be using the new frequency of 5010 kHz for the evening transmission at 2200-0100 UT and the morning transmission at 1100-1200 (and until 1230 on Fridays).
We are making announcements about the frequency change on the air all this week until the change next Monday, to inform our listeners in advance. We will observe the new frequency during the coming weeks to be sure that it is providing good reception. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks for your understanding.
