Every year, the BBC broadcasts a special program to the scientists and support staff in the British Antarctic Survey Team. The BBC plays music requests and sends special messages to the small team of 40+ located at various Antarctic research stations. Each year, the thirty minute show is guaranteed to be quirky, nostalgic, and certainly a DX-worthy catch!
After successful listener events from years past, I’m once again calling on all SWLing Post readers and shortwave radio listeners to make a short recording (say, 30-60 seconds) of the BBC Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast today and share it here at the Post.
The broadcast will take place at 21:30 UTC today.
Many thanks to SWLing Post contributors Richard Langley and Alan Pennington who confirm the following broadcast frequencies:
- 5875 kHz
- 7360 kHz
- 9455 kHz
