TWO SPECIAL SIMULCASTS TONITE:
I. Showcase 292 will air with time donated by the station on Radio Channel 292 from Rohrbach, Germany on September 7 from 2100 to 2200 UTC on 3955, 6070 and 9670 kHz. This is Channel 292’s first collaborative simulcast featuring five music and variety programs that appear on its weekly schedule – Alt Universe Top 40 (rock), Encore (classical music), From the Isle of Music (Cuban music), Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot (world and novelty music) and the Voice of the Report of the Week (listener request music plus commentary). 3955 and 9670 are both new frequencies, and listeners are encouraged to try them as a DX catch in Eastern Canada, although it is uncertain whether they will be received there. A special eQSL will be available from the producer (details wil be given during the broadcast). 6070 kHz will of course not be receivable in Canada due to CFRX on the same frequency.
II. WBCQ The Planet from Monticello, Maine, USA continues its popular simulcast series with time donated by Allan and Angela Weiner with WBCQ Works! on September 7 from 10pm to 11pm EDT (0200-0300 UTC September 8) on 5130, 6160 and 7490 kHz with five of its popular regular music offerings – Area 51, beHAVior night, the Lost Discs Radio Show, Marion’s Attic and Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot. In another recent broadcast, 6160 was heard as far as Western Russia and may be listenable throughout most of Canada away from the NE. 5130 may be better for NE Canada, and 7490 may be better out west. This, too, will have a special eQSL from the producer, details will be given during the broadcast. Since it will be Labor Day in the US, at least some of the songs will be related to work or the lack of it.
