It's amazing how little we know about a country 90 miles from Florida, but does anyone know about Radio & TV in Cuba?
Here's what I know, partly from reading other posts here:
Cuba has several national radio networks, which have AM and FM outlets around the island:
--Radio Reloj (all news and time checks)
When I was in Key West, it was easy to hear Radio Reloj on two frequencies, 590 and 950. I also heard Cuban stations playing music on several frequencies but didn't have the time to wait for I.D.s. One played international hits in English as well as Spanish. I was surprised to hear Bruce Springsteen and Madonna one day. Many of the AM stations date back from pre-Castro days. Obviously the FM stations came after Castro's take-over. They've been described as not very powerful and on short towers, which is why they're hard, if not impossible to pick up in the Florida Keys. Others on this board have said while on an airplane flight over the Carribbean, they've heard Cuban FMs on their walkmans. One poster said he was surprised at how clear Radio Reloj sounds on FM.
Do we know if Cuba has FM-only networks or other AM networks in addition to the three I mentioned above? I think I've heard there is a Classical FM station in Havana.
How about TV? Some have posted that Channel 2 and 6 are sometimes seen in the Keys. There are a few examples of Cuban TV on You Tube, including stations caught in Florida on a skip. I assume they have separate programming. Do we have any idea if that's it for TV in Cuba... two networks? Do they produce their own programs mostly or do they import from other Latin America countries for teleromans, dramas, documentaries, etc? Do they carry overseas sports such as The Olympics and The World Cup or is their budget too limited?
