Correction: Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast transmission tests take place on Friday

SX-99-DialIn the title of my last post, I noticed that I’ve incorrectly stated that the Friday, June 19 BBC Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast tests were to take place “today.” While the post content was correct, the date in this title was not.  My apologies for the mix-up–I’ve since corrected and noted this in the original post.

To be clear, the transmission tests for Sunday’s Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast will take place on Friday, June 19 2015 from 21:30-21:45 UTC on the following frequencies:

  • 7,425 kHz, Ascension, 207 degrees
  • 5,985 kHz, Woofferton, 184 degrees
  • 9,590 kHz, Woofferton, 182 degrees
  • 5,905 kHz, Dhabayya, 203 degrees

Apologies for any confusion.

    Well, no joy in Beaumont, Tx using a Icom R-75 with a field expedient whip and Sangean wire antenna or a Sony SW7600GR on the built in whip or with the AN LP-1. I did learn the Maytag Bravos washing machine puts out a heck of a lot of RFI over the shortwave bands. I could hear it real well on all of the test channels. Will have to try again, sans washing machine, during the broadcast.
