VORW Radio International expands in Asia and North America once again

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, John from VORW Radio International, who writes:

VORW Radio International has now added a new weekly transmission to Japan and East Asia as well as an additional frequency to North America!

Each broadcast features a mixture of my commentary and listener requested music. You’ll hear a great variety of music in this program, from Classical to Classic Country, from Rock to Smooth Jazz, you’ll hear it all!

If you’re interested in listening, the updated broadcast schedule is as follows:

Thursday 1200 UTC – 9875 kHz – Tashkent 100 kW – East Asia
Thursday 2000 UTC – 11580 kHz – WRMI 100 kW – Europe

Alex’s updated frequency charts

SWLing Post contributor, Alex, has just informed me that he’s updated his printer-friendly BBC global shortwave broadcasting chart and in the process of updating his international broadcasting charts for the 2017 summer broadcasting season.

Note that Alex creates his charts based on listening to broadcasters rather than importing schedules from other sources.
