by Nathan Hamm on 6/13/2005

VOA Press Release (via Volodymyr Campaign):

“Because of the recent events in Uzbekistan and the Uzbek government’s tightening of controls on foreign television broadcasts, we have decided to resume our radio broadcasts,” said VOA Director David Jackson. “The Uzbek people deserve to have access to uncensored news and information about what’s happening in their own country, their region, and the world. In addition, our Uzbek language web site will continue to be updated with the latest news and information.”

VOA’s Uzbek-language radio broadcasts will consist of a daily (seven days a week), 30-minute program, airing from 15:00-15:30 UTC (20:00 -20:30 local time) on the following shortwave frequencies:

SW Frequencies 1500-1530 UTC:
11515 IRA (26.05 meters)
11780 UDO (25.47 meters)
15390 KAV (19.49 meters)
