Shortwave radio listeners can hear Radio Progreso at 4765 khz at night via its transmitter in Bauta, Cuba.[2] In the southern United States, Radio Progreso can frequently be heard at night on multiple mediumwave (AM frequencies). The following table is taken from an animated banner on Radio Progreso's website with additional information (call sign, power for the AM stations) from the U.S. FCC records[3] which rely on official data that are not necessarily accurate and only partly consistent with Radio Progeso's website.
