Around 70 radio amateurs provide their services for years in the development of elections, in the different processes convened for the purpose, with quality and immediacy. One of these valuable men is Luis Díaz Jaquinet, who together with his colleagues gave coverage to the first round of the 2017-2018 general elections, held on Sunday, November 26th, to elect the delegates to the Municipal Assemblies of the People’s Power and yesterday I was ready to take action in the new round of elections.
Refirio Diaz Jaquinet that they guarantee the reception and transmission of the electoral parties, those that flow from the schools. These radio amateurs with their portable short-wave equipment in the 40-meter band and the two-meter band, these dedicated operators organized in radio circuits, serve as a link from the most distant Popular Councils where telephony does not exist.
Today, radio amateurs proudly exhibit the recognitions granted by the provincial Electoral Commission in the different years in which elections have been held in Cuba.
