Broadcasting to Cuba

July 1982
National Review;7/23/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 14, p877
The article discusses the efforts of the U.S. government to establish a radio station called Radio Marti to broadcast in Cuba. For this, the Radio Broadcasting to Cuba Act was introduced in the House. It was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, which added three amendments regarding the operations of the station and handling of any technical or political problems that might arise. The bill was then referred to the Subcommittee on Telecommunications, Consumer Protection, and Finance. It made an amendment to the bill that will restrict Radio Marti to broadcast only on shortwave frequencies instead of the AM frequencies. It is known that only few Cubans have access to shortwave radios, so the amendment, if approved, would bar Cubans from the news.
