The Mighty KBC broadcast again early this morning (from 00:00-02:00 UTC) on their new summer frequency of 9,925 kHz. Their signal from Nauen, Germany was packing 125 kW–it was amazingly strong into North America. As we’ve come to expect, the KBC’s Giant Jukebox of music has a lot of rock-n-roll and Euro-pop variety, spanning the decades; DJ, “Uncle Eric” knows how to entertain and spin the tunes!

You can listen to the full recording below in the embedded player, or simply right click this link and save the MP3 file to your computer:

You’ll notice that Kim Elliott has another installation of digital text modes in this broadcast. Decode these digital modes using Fldigi from Be sure to check out Dr. Elliott’s VOA Radiogram website for full details about this broadcast.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for putting the KBC recording on your website. I was trying to receive it directly here in New Zealand, but even 125kW is not enough to broadcast into the pacific. I am still hoping that one day, they will point a few antennas to the pacific. I like the music form KBC. I wish more station would broadcast like that on SW.
