Memorandum

concerning the progress in implementing the CC CPSU decree “Measures to Vigorously Counteract Hostile Radio
Propaganda”

The CC CPSU decree “Measures to Vigorously Counteract Hostile Radio Propaganda” was discussed in the Bureau of the CC of the CP of Uzbekistan, which adopted the following decree.

The following work has been done to implement the CC CPSU decree.

Beginning 20 August 1960 the time of broadcasts on the 150-kilowatt long-wave transmitter and the 50-kilowatt shortwave transmitter has been extended from 0200 to 0430 Tashkent time. Thus republican radio broadcasting is now done from 0600 to 0430. In addition, the first Moscow program is rebroadcast via short-wave transmitter from 0600 to 2300 on the 61.85 meter wavelength.

Broadcasts in Uzbek and Tajik are aired on the second program on the 750 meter wavelength and also via UHf FM.

Programming and the broadcasting network have been reexamined in order to vigorously counteract hostile radio propaganda. Programs of the most popular musical and other artistic works and also of current events are being organized on Uzbek radio during those hours when Voice of America and BBC broadcast. A daily program in Uzbek, “Radio Commentator at the Microphone,” has been introduced in which counterpropaganda materials received from Moscow are used. Discussions on economic, international, and sociopolitical topics are broadcast daily.

Radio broadcasts are made daily from 0920 to 1330 in Uzbek and Tajik and include discussions of a radio commentator and a Latest News edition. They use fresh information reported by radio from Moscow and also materials received via teletype from TASS and through the republican telegraph agency. Concerts of popular Uzbek and Tajik music, the music of other peoples of the USSR, and also other artistic programs of interest to a majority of the population are broadcast during these same hours.

Discussions are regularly transmitted in Uzbek and Russian for Soviet radio listeners denouncing the hostile propaganda of Voice of America, BBC, and other radio stations and also materials providing specific examples of the essence of the policy of the imperialist countries, the real living conditions of the workers, and the morale and mood of capitalist society.
