Belgian Radio Vlaanderen left shortwave

RVI logoRadio Vlaanderen Internationaal (RVI) has discontinued broadcasting on shortwave. RVI is the international broadcasting service of Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT), the public broadcaster of the Flemish community in Belgium. RVI has been broadcasting two hours daily primarily for an expat audience in Southern Europe. The last shortwave broadcast aired today October 24. Reasons for dropping shortwave include the high cost and poor sound quality of shortwave transmissions. According to RVI's survey, listeners are increasingly using the Internet and satellite radio instead of shortwave. RVI broadcasts only in Dutch.
