Channel 292 are hoping to begin transmitting on 3955 kHz today – Friday 1st May – from Germany.
Encore’s usual broadcast on 6070 kHz at 19:00 UTC Friday will now be simulcast on 3955 kHz.
The first programme will, of course, be the final repeat of last Saturday’s show.
Channel 292 will be interested in reception reports for 3955 kHz – email@example.com
The WRMI broadcast to Europe on Thursday 30th April at 20:00 – 21:00 UTC was particularly well propagated with excellent musical quality for SW.
