The names applies to the owner and/or the license holder, the person who has kindly signed the document saying that his station will be closed down. Some stations, like the anti-government CNB, owned by the president of the Cámara Nacional de Radio yTelevisión, continues to broadcast over the internet.

The sensible DX-er should of course refrain from sending a follow up to these stations which would be adding insult to injury. A better option would be writing to the owner of the station expressing your regret for the decision by the government. WIth a bit of luck you may get a response on the station's letterhead....

"Chávez law a threat against the opposition" Swedish news agency TT knowingly writes in my local morning paper today. Obviously this was old news as in today's Sydsvenskan this is headlined in quite a different way. (Henrik Klemetz, ARC)
