Laser Hot Hits off air

23 August 2006 - After 12 years of successful broadcasting to Europe, we have reluctantly been forced to shutdown our shortwave transmissions. This is due to action from the radio authorities. In the meantime, we shall keep the Destiny stream and shows on our website available so listeners can continue to hear our programmes. Please keep checking this website for more updates over the coming weeks. Thanks to all the shortwave listeners who have supported us over the years.

Thanks for the nice programmes over the years. Hope you be able to return to shortwave one day.

Relays via Latvia Update

Since 2002 various radio services have been relayed via the shortwave facilities of the LRTVC at Ulbroka. These relays were arranged via a Latvian Company (KREBS TV).

Please note that KREBS TV no longer holds a shortwave broadcasting licence in Latvia.

In late 2005 the Latvian Broadcasting Council invited Tenders for the establishment of a full commercial shortwave broadcast radio station.

On Friday 27th January 2005, the Latvian Broadcasting Council announced that RNI had been granted a FULL commercial shortwave broadcasting licence.

The RNI broadcasting licence is NOT a temporary relay licence, as used by previous operator KREBS TV.

RNI is now the ONLY officially sanctioned shortwave broadcast radio station in Latvia.

Latvia shortwave relays

The closed shortwave relay service on 9290 kHz is due to return with a new owner in the autumn. The relay license of Krebs TV (51% owned by Jan Telenský, also the owner of Radio Tatras International) has now expired.

The New license owner is planning to install a small SW transmitter (probably 10kW; DRM-ready) during the summer and to resume the relay service for low-budget program producers in the autumn.

This will substitute the previously used 100kW transmitter. Since the Latvian state transmitter operator LVRTC (owner of the Ulbroka site) raised the prices for the shortwave transmitter lease at the beginning of the year, the rates for 100kW airtime are no longer affordable by
the typical customers of the relay service. However the old 100kW transmitter will still be available for clients who are ready to pay the higher prices.
