WRHB, Miami, on at 1020 kHz
Miami's newest AM now seems to be on the air and at full power. WRHB, 1020 kHz, licensed to Kendall, is identifying itself as "Radio Carnivale", and features an all Haitian-Creole (nonbrokered) format. For now, the format seems to consist of just music, with announcements thrown in anywhere, like over the music.

Inside Iranian DX information
For medium wave DXers, Iran is an interesting country. The national state radio IRIB is audible on many different medium wave frequencies in Europe, but unfortunately it is difficult to obtain reliable information about frequencies, schedules etc.
Now Danish DX Bjarke Vestesen comes to our rescue with an on the spot bandscan.
"It is almost impossible to get official information about transmitter locations, as this seems to be kept secret by the authorities, so my list is based on personal observations during April 9-22 in Teheran, Shiraz, Yazd, Isfahan and Kashan", says Bjarke Vestesen.
He list is available in PDF format as a free download.

World's distress channel -- and its own little pirate radio station of weirdness and pain.

Richard Stallman’s Crusade for Free Software is also a fight for freedom of expression and freedom of information -- something HCDX fully support.
