Do you know when you will be publishing a regular schedule? I often have to fit my listening time in, and knowing what is on when, is a big help. Thanks!
Thank you Thomas for keeping us apprised. I’m really looking forward to hearing Shakespeare on the shortwaves ahd taking a listen to the wide variety of other programming. Cold and rainy this A.M. the morning after Halloween, anotherwords it’s SW weather.
I’m hearing them SIO 555 in North Carolina. Great signal with a touch of shallow fading. Been recording 9395 since 2200 UTC and 160 kHz of pirate spectrum on a separate receiver. Just back from taking the kids for trick or treats. (They received lots of treats.)
Also a very good signal via U Twente’s web SDR: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
As I am working now A night shift, I took the Sangean ATS909 with me. Lots of interference inside the control room, but outside very good signal with only the telescopic antenna.
They have very good audio quality, I’m very impressed.
I wish them good luck.
Global 24 being heard here in Eastern England around 0030 UTC November 1, a lot of fading, but nevertheless there. Probably just not ideal conditions, but hopefully will improve. Looking forward to hearing more of this station, the line-up is looking good!
Welcome to Global24.
As of now UTC01/11/14 00.26 Recieving is bad here in Denmak.
Sm is 3,5-4 but lots of noice… Relly hope it gets better.. looking foward to hear this new Station.
Due to a temporary relocation to fairly unfavorable conditions for receiving broadcasts, I’m currently, i.e. 2315Z, not copying any signal on 9395 kHz in Montana. I understand that another listener in Idaho isn’t receiving Global24’s broadcast either. After nightfall, the signal should improve in the western USA.
Although Global24’s broadcast can now be heard buried in the noise, it’s still unintelligible at 0240Z. Prior to 0240Z, only noise could be heard at my location.
this is terrific! shakespeare over the air, tons of content, even a program on physics and cosmology — what could be better? i know i’ll certainly be tuning in on a regular basis.
I had a feeling Global24 would relay Voice Of Russia. After the excitement caused by the mere possibility of its return October 1st, Russia had to get Voice Of Russia on shortwave sometime.
We will be relaying the Voice of Russia….stay tuned.
Cool!!!!!!!!!!! This is so good. Alot of good shows to listen to!
Additionally, Global24 will need to spread time from each category over the 24 hour period so listeners in all parts of the world have access to a variety of programming. We definitely don’t need another clone of NPR, VOA, BBC, NBC, Fox, etc …
Isn’t there enough “liberty” programming on ALL the other U.S. private SW stations? One could argue that Global 24 is restoring at least some balance to a medium that is dominated by the “liberty” programming and hard right evangelical programming sectors. If there’s something new, a bit more thoughtful and accessible from those sectors, then by all means Global 24 should give it due consideration. But if the intent is just to repeat what’s already available on that score from WWCR, WBCQ, WWRB, etc., then Global 24 should think twice before moving in that already well-trod direction. Having said that, I like what I’m hearing so far!
With the inclusion of some liberty-oriented programming, the balance will be better. As a global outreach, Global24 is striving to provide something for every potential listener. So far, I think Global24 is on the right track. Apparently, so does Alinco, Kaito, Universal Radio, and some other corporate sponsors. Personally, I’d like to see a manufacturer of DRM transmitters step up and sponsor some of the cost of upgrading WRMI’s transmitters for DRM. WRMI and Global24 can certainly find a way to simulcast both digital and analog on the shortwave bands.
