They couldn’t pinpoint the cable radio broadcasts during the occupation

First secret broadcast of the cable radio

“We stayed in the underground studio, and they couldn’t find us because it was cable radio, and you can’t pinpoint that. We saw a car with an antenna, rotating, searching, but you can’t locate a cable. We stayed in the studio even after the radio in Beethoven Street stopped broadcasting. So we made friends with the reporters there, and they started visiting us and bringing us news, and we broadcast them. Not just by cable, but also in the streets via loudspeakers.”
