No additional BBC Hindi service on SW for now
According to Andy Sennitt in Media Network BBC World Service has no immediate plans to resume the three Hindi shortwave transmissions that have been added to the HFCC transmission schedule with an indicated start date of 1 May 2011. These are so-called ‘wooden’ entries which may be used in the future if additional funding can be found, but at the moment the 1400-1500 UTC transmission is the only one on the air.
