COMMUNISTS CEASED JAMMING RADIO MARTI DURING HURRICANE GEORGES By Margarita Yero, Cuba Free Press.

SANTIAGO - During Hurricane Georges' trek across this region, the communist authorities suspended their constant static on "Radio Marti." While the hurricane was bearing down on this area, the station constantly broadcast news of the hurricane: Its position, strength, and the damage it caused along its path.

About 24 hours after the hurricane went to the west, the interference was renewed.

Despite that static, which makes it difficult to hear Radio Marti broadcasts in this easternmost region of the country, Radio Marti is the station most listened to in Cuba, taking into account the information it transmits on the political, social and economic life of the society of the largest island in the Antilles. The station, a branch of the Voice of America, transmits via a short-wave frequency 24 hours a day.

Radio Marti uses a considerable amount of news dispatches generated by the independent press movement of Cuba. It broadcasts musical programs, news about Cuba and the rest of the world, interviews, debates on the problems faced daily by Cubans and sober commentaries on many topics.

All of which makes it the preferred radio station to most Cubans and, of course, the most hated by the Cuban regime.
