They won't be stopping shortwave radio. I'd bet like in many other countries (not the U.S., unfortunately), even small radio sets offer a shortwave band.

The Islamist Arab-worshipping regime of Iran does it best to jam radio broadcasts. Their #1 target is the very popular RadioIsrael Persian service with its enormously well-liked anchorman the Iranian-born Mr. Mensheh Amir. People thus resort to downloading recorded programs from website which is of course filtered in Iran. But, people have found access to filter-breakers etc.......


Evidently this has been going on for several years now.
One source Iranmania indicates that in 3/04 some 40K dishes were confiscated.
I do agree though that the timing is not good.

The Iranian police can destroy satelite dish antennas, but canot stop the voice of freedom in the short wave radio. This is the proof that the short waves remain a great value.


That's scary!


Iran is banning the BBC and al-jazera? That sounds like a good thing.

The western and other international media have such an anti-American and anti-Israeli bias how can cuting it off be bad?

In fact there is so much anti-american and anti-israeli bias in the world that even objective reporting about statements made by world leaders and UN officials will still spread that bias.

Maybe we should consider if there anything that could be done to encourage other regimes to also ban the BBC and al-jazera?
