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! April 5, 2014 Compiled by Glenn Hauser NOTE: DST in North America started already March 9, when most program times shifted one UT hour earlier, mostly still on same frequencies. DST in Europe and A-14 season began March 30, now almost fully updated. Updates and correxions from users and userettes are always welcome. Dates for 2-weekly broadcasts (Turkey, New Zealand) are projected, and may be disrupted by holidays. Confirmations of appearances or non-appearances are welcome. In 2014, Turkey`s DX Corner now alternates with Letterbox, moved in from Wednesdays. If you see some strange Havana frequencies here: we include confirmed and pervasive mixing products: reality. From December 1, 2013, WRMI has been broadcasting via multiple transmitters at Okeechobee, ex-WYFR, but WRMI DX programming remains on 9955 only and with a number of deleted times. This results in much improved reception for the remaining times. Then additional hour of RMI programming including some DX programs but no schedule published: 00-01 UT on 9495. Mostly Spanish; WOR and Wavescan entered. 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. NHK Japan: in May 2012 added MEDIA WATCH on Saturdays. Usually appears on 3rd Sat, but in June announced it would appear on 23rd = 4th of 5 Sats; i.e., 2nd-to-last Sat, confirmed by Alan Roe. Radio Australia: We have added DOWNLOAD THIS SHOW and FUTURE TENSE; times for those all new as of Feb 2014. RA not yet updated for A-14, lacking complete schedule and possible time changes from April 6.
