unfortunately not

HF SWBC will not come alive again as internet censoring picks up., At least not as far as the USA is concerned.

The VOA BBG is just in love with the internet because it's cheaper, and is the new ooh! aah! got to have thing. They didn't think that what has happened would happen.

The thinking went like this:

Somebody would block our internet signal? We're the USA! We got net neutrality. That can't happen!


THE BBG ( the Board of Broadcasting Governors)( the honchos of VOA, RFA, RFE, Radio Marti) has over the years had a policy of consistently abandoning and tearing down VOA HF SWBC transmitter sites.
THE USA just does NOT have the capability to broadcast on HF anymore.......
Delano, Dixon, Bethany, Kevala, etc are gone; Antennae torn down, transmitters sold off.

The USA cannot compete in the world HF SWBC marketplace anymore because it doesn't have the necessary infrastructure.
