Radio Insurgente
February 19, 2005

This station continues to claim it has a weekly shortwave broadcast. The photos, text and slogan on the 3rd anniversary page suggest it is broadcasting clandestinely using its own equipment. The slogan is "transmitting from the mountains of Southeast Mexico". Surely someone, somewhere, sometime must have been able to hear this shortwave broadcast if it really exists?

te 14 de febrero nuestra Radio Insurgente, la voz de los sin voz, voz oficial del Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional cumplió tres años de transmitir en FM en la zona Altos de Chiapas.

On Feb. 14, Radio Insurgente, the voice of the voiceless and the EZLN, celebrated their third year of FM radio broadcasting in Chiapas commumities. See

Radio Insurgente broadcasts FM radio daily in many communiies in Chiapas and every Friday offers a shortwave broadcast internationally. The shortwave broadcast is available every Friday evening on their web site at

The 3rd anniversary programme they claim was broadcast on shortwave 18 Feb is available online at

Listened to the beginning and end of the programme: starts with multilingual ID's including English, and at the end the announcer says that they'll be back next Friday "at the same time and on the same frequency", but without mentioning what these are (though on the page it's given as 2100-2200 UTC on 6.0 MHz).

If you have broadband, I recommend downloading the 64 kbps MP3 file. The audio quality is very good.
