This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- For the first time, China has become the worlds leading exporter, surpassing Germany for the first 6 months of this year. The death toll from the typhoon that hit Taiwan has reached nearly 300, with many still missing. China is updating its renewable energy law, working to bring solar and wind systems into the national electric grid. UN Secretary-General will visit Norway to see climate changes in the Arctic Ocean. Venezuelan President Chavez says he will break off diplomatic ties with Colombia, saying that the US military presence will be a declaration of war against the Bolivarian revolution. A meeting of the Organization of American States has failed to reach an agreement with the interim military government of Honduras. Iran says it will continue to cooperate with the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency, which just completed inspections.
From NETHERLANDS- Radio Netherlands has eliminated shortwave broadcasts to North America. The decision is based on their surveys that find very few listeners in N America. If you ever listen to RN on shortwave, please let them know- by email to letters@rnw.nl or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
From Monday, an analysis of the problems with the presidential election in Afghanistan. On Tuesday night a massive truck bomb went off in Kandahar which the Taliban condemned, and no one claimed responsibility for.

From CUBA- The Obama administration announced Monday that it will continue the practice of sending terrorism suspects to foreign countries for detention and interrogation. According to Press TV Israel has agreed to pause their settlement expansion in exchange for tougher international sanctions against Iran.
From RUSSIA- A Canada will not agree to extend deployment of its troops in Afghanistan beyond 2011. A report on the lack of support among American citizens and politicians for the US led war in Afghanistan.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at-http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves

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 afternoon at 4:30pm (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)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://http://www.radio4all.net/responder.php/podcast/podcast.xml?series=outFarpress+presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at < http://www.rfpi.org >

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)
