The SWLing Post, 15 Oct 2013, Marty Delfin, translating notice on the Radio Exterior de España website: "From October 28, Radio Exterior de España will permanently conclude its shortwave transmissions from its relay station in Cariari, Costa Rica. At the same time, from that date, broadcasts from its transmitters in Noblejas, Spain will be considerably expanded. These changes will affect those listeners in Central America, North America and the northern part of South America’s Southern Cone who tune us. In the coming days, we will post and announce our new frequencies and times in which you can hear Radio Exterior de España on our webpage and programs."

Yet another Western Hemisphere shortwave transmitting facility closes, following Radio Netherlands on Bonaire, TDF in French Guiana, Radio Canada International in New Brunswick, WYFR in Florida, International Broadcasting Bureau in Delano, California, and Bethany, Ohio, CVC in Chile, BBC on Antigua, and others.
