Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (July 22) is up at the website http://www.outfarpress.com/shortwave.shtml in 3 forms- (new) HIGHEST QUALITY (128kb)(27MB), broadcast quality (16MB), and quickdownload or streaming form (6MB) (28:59) Links at page bottom
(If you have access to Audioport there is a highest quality version posted up there {27MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

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- Conoco-Philips say they have cleaned up half of the massive oil spill off the coast of China. Iran claims to have shot down an unmanned US spy plane. A quirky report on the use of texting on cell phones to aid people trying to break their tobacco addiction.
From JAPAN- Japan released a map showing radiation levels in the air 150 km away from Fukushima to be as bad as that 50 km away. Beef raised for meat in Japan has been found to have been contaminated with radiation from rice straw. The EU has required member nations to draw up final disposal plans for spent nuclear fuel rods. The US has been briefed on Japanese plans for eliminating nuclear power. The US has continued conducting sub-critical nuclear weapons testing underground in Nevada.
From GERMANY- There is a Eurozone summit in Brussels to discuss the spreading financial crisis in Europe, with the possibility of the demise of the Euro.
From CUBA- Nicaraguans celebrated the 32nd anniversary of the Sandinista revolution, and President Ortega wants a referendum demanding that the US pay damages for its involvement in the civil war. A BP oil pipeline ruptured in the North Slope of Alaska last weekend- a second oil spill occurred in Montana on the Blackfeet Indian reservation. Russia has rejected the adoption of a UN resolution against Syria, similar to the one against Libya.
From RUSSIA- As the US faces worsening economic news requiring huge cuts in social spending, the so-called "Defense budget" continues to soar. US officials have made it clear that the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, or CTBT, will not be sent to the Senate for ratification.
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.(PDST)
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)
