Radio Ukraine adjust shortwave frequencies

UKRAINE 7440 Since Jan 25, RUI Kiev will change frequency 5820 on[to] 7440 kHz for translations on North America with 0000 up to 0500 UTC. The reason: complaints of students on bad reception on 5820 in America (it is obvious because of conditions of passage of radiowaves and Handicapes from WEWN c 5810 ???), and in Europe and vicinities - from "espionage" Stations YHF2. The Russian stations on 7 are audible well. Besides spring not far
off - increase of frequency inevitably.

Radio Ukraine International announced that effective January 26th English to North America would be 0100-0200 and 0400-0500 on new 7440, ex5820.
