The two countries agreed to cease “hostile actions” in May, but jamming and propaganda broadcasts persist

Wouldn't surprise me, in a way.

I mean, look at the US and Cuba. They still jam Marti.

True, but our thaw was pretty short lived. Not much of a chance for them to make progress on the radio front.

I guess part of my point is that technically we still have diplomatic relations now, although the openness between the countries has soured for various reasons.

I still don't get why Cuba jams Marti. From what I understand, no one in Cuba even tries to listen to Marti.

Which is kind of sad, in a way, because some of their programming seems pretty sharp and entertaining -- including baseball games.
