At least for the current year the feared abandonment of short-wave bands of Vatican Radio will not be. According to from the HFCC provisional schedule A17 which will take effect in late March, the Vatican broadcaster will focus its activities and liturgical information on shortwave to Africa, middle and Far East through the main site of Santa Maria Galeria and Madagascar relay stations, Tinang. Palauig, Tinian Island and Greenville. To the Europe are provided only liturgical broadcasts in Romanian and Ukrainian. Two in the Italian language broadcasts: from 6.00 to 6.15 on 15595 kHz and from 12 to 12.20 on 17520 and 17590 kHz. As the Vatican broadcaster has long been known is aiming particularly on new technologies, satellite and the internet to spread their emssaggio, focusing to a sotanzioso budget savings. Pretty dramatic few months ago the sudden shutdown of the historical frequency of 585 KHz which served with excellent signal the metropolitan area of Rome and the Lazio region. With the changing of the leadership of the Vatican media's the hypothesis of shortwave shutdown it became more and more concrete arousing apprehension and perplexity of the Catholic circles of the developing countries that were seen deprived of an important means of spreading the Catholic message , especially in the face of a massive presence of evangelical broadcasters on shortwave they not want to give up and that, indeed, strengthen the presence of these broadcasting bands rightly considered strategic in places where new technologies still do not enjoy widespread use. Different sensibility had instead proved the SECAM Symposium of African bishops who recently drafted a joint document by asking the issuer's top management not to proceed with the closure of the service on short wave to Africa as most of the regular listeners of the transmissions not been able to follow the broadcasts they do not have the new digital technologies which link from Oltretevere. Request that, at least for now, seems to be upheld, given that the service still provides transmissions in major African languages. A17 are also present in the schedule transmissions in major Asian languages and the Middle East. This makes COMPLETE SCHEDULE PERIOD A17 of Vatican Radio.
