Uruguay's S.O.D.R.E. currently off shortwave


6125 kHz, S.O.D.R.E., Montevideo, is currently OFF air. There are no more spare 813 tubes. As you may know, the 9620 transmitter has been out of service for a couple of years for the same reason. The replacement for new tubes is regretfully not in the official plans. A 500 W PDM solid state transmitter is being planned, but it will not operative in the near coming time, according to station technician. This means that Uruguay is currently *OFF the SW* in terms of broadcasting.
