Glenn Hauser`s World of Radio

HOME presents... SELECTED ENGLISH LANGUAGE DX\SWL\MEDIA PROGRAMS ON SHORTWAVE Plus a few selected Mailbags and other goodies! February 4, 2016 Compiled by Glenn Hauser Updates and correxions from users and userettes are always welcome. Especially reconfirming 2-weekly appearances from Turkey. Letterbox confirmed on the week of Dec 5-6. WBCQ adds daily broadcasts of WORLD OF RADIO on 9330v-CUSB, Mon-Sat at 0030, Sat at 2330. See WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULE for complete listings including non-shortwave outlets. NOTE: DST in Europe ended Oct 25 and the B-15 SW season started, which caused numerous time and frequency changes. End of DST in North America November 1 caused most US DX programs to shift one UT hour later. DST resumes in North America March 13 shifting most US programs one UT hour earlier; DST in Europe and A-16 season begin March 27 with many further changes. Note: VIVA MIAMI can be in English or Spanish WRMI 9955 only programming can also be heard via phone: +1-712-432-8868. Many broadcasts on WRMI 9955 are jammed by Cuba. Please direct complaints to Arnie Coro Nevertheless, we include his program and try to keep up with changes. WRMI schedule revised again Feb 1; this one changes most often. AUSTRALIA: frequent shuffles of programming, updated October 4 with current times for FUTURE TENSE, MEDIA REPORT, DOWNLOAD THIS SHOW, which have shifted one UT hour earlier for DST DU; likewise RNZI show. Both Australia (parts of) and NZ stay on DST until April 3. KBS World Radio`s own schedule not updated for a year or three, but probably not (m)any changes. Note: our listings are compiled independently of other DX-program schedules, altho they may be compared subsequently UT SATURDAY 0030-0100 WBCQ: WORLD OF RADIO 9330v-CUSB 0100-0245v WBCQ: ALLAN WEINER WORLDWIDE 7490v 5110v-CUSB/AM [length varies to 2 hours; 5110v may split to other program after 1 hour; 1 hour repeats at other times, on 7490v, sometimes ad-hoc] 0230-0300 WRMI: WAVESCAN 9955 0304-0400 CFRX: GEEKS & BEATS 6070 0515-0530 WRMI: VIVA MIAMI 9955 0730-0800 Hamburger Lokalradio: WORLD OF RADIO 6190-CUSB [new] 0825-0900 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 9570 1000-1030 WRN to Europe: WORLD OF RADIO on satellite 1130-1200 WRMI: WAVESCAN 5950 1200-1230 WRMI: WAVESCAN 9955 1300-1400 Hamburger Lokalradio: Chelmsford Calling World Service (monthly, third Saturday) 7265-CUSB [unconfirmed] 1325-1400 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 9570 15575 [or 1331-] 1347-1404 Turkey: LETTERBOX 12035 [2-weekly from February 13] 1500-1530 Hamburger Lokalradio: Media Network Plus 7265-CUSB 1530-1600 Hamburger Lokalradio: WORLD OF RADIO 7265-CUSB 1600-0930v WA0RCR: GATEWAY AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLETTER 1860-AM 1625-1700 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 9640 1730-1800 AWR: WAVESCAN 12160-USA 1747-1804 Turkey: LETTERBOX 11730 [2-weekly from February 13] 1825-1900 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 7275 1830-1900 WRN to North America: WORLD OF RADIO on satellite 1947-2004 Turkey: LETTERBOX 6050 [2-weekly from February 13] 2006-2040 New Zealand: MEDIAWATCH 11725 2030-2100v WA0RCR: WORLD OF RADIO 1860-AM 2147-2204 Turkey: LETTERBOX 9610 [2-weekly from February 13] 2200-2230 AWR: Wavescan 15435-Guam 2225-2300 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 11810 2230-2300 WBCQ: BROAD SPECTRUM HOBBY RADIO [following first Thu] 7490v 2317-2334 Turkey: LETTERBOX 5960 [2-weekly from February 13] 2330-2400 WBCQ: WORLD OF RADIO 9330v-CUSB 2330-2400 AWR: WAVESCAN 15320-Guam 2345-2415 WRMI: WAVESCAN 9955 UT SUNDAY 0000-0930v WA0RCR: GATEWAY AMATEUR RADIO NEWSLETTER 1860-AM [starts 1600 UT Saturday] 0030-0100 Australia: FUTURE TENSE 17840 15415 15240 0030-0100 IPAR/IRRS: WORLD OF RADIO 846 & 1368-Italy [irregular?] 0030-0100 WRMI: WAVESCAN 5950 0125-0200 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 11810 0130-0200 WRMI: WAVESCAN 11580 0204-0300 CFRX: GEEKS & BEATS 6070 0225-0300 Korea: LISTENERS LOUNGE 9580 0410-0445v WA0RCR: WORLD OF RADIO 1860-AM [could be as late as 0500] 0417-0434 Turkey: LETTERBOX 9655 7240 [2-weekly from February 14] 0430-0500 WRMI: DX-EXTRA, HOBART 9955 [not produced weekly] 0510-0529 Japan: FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD 9770-France 13640-UAE 0605-0700 WWCR-4: INTO TOMORROW 4840 0800-0900 South African Radio League: AMATEUR RADIO MIRROR INTERNATIONAL 17760 7205 7082-LSB 0912-0945 New Zealand: MEDIAWATCH 9765 1000-1100 Channel 292: Chelmsford Calling World Service 6070-Germany [monthly, 3rd Sunday?
