This weekend Encore – Classical Music on Radio Tumbril will again broadcast on a new frequency via WWCR in Tennessee.
Saturday 28th December 21:00 UTC 9350 kHz – this is the afternoon in US and Canada and the signal should carry to part of western Europe too.
Encore – Classical Music this weekend is – of course – being broadcast as usual by Channel 292 (Europe) on 6070 kHz at 15:00 UTC Sunday 29th December.
And by WBCQ on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday 30th December.
There is a repeat on 6070 kHz on Friday 3rd January at 19:00 UTC.
For the next few weeks – there will also be a trial second repeat on 7440 kHz from Channel 292 at 09:00 UTC on Sundays – try tuning in – it can be a nice clean signal- and send us a reception report if you can.
Do let us know how well you can pick up Encore at your location by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to reply to all emails and will send eQSL cards for full reports.
This week’s programme contained a great mix of old and new pieces – we have Bach, Kurtág, Schumann, and Arvo Pärt as well as a few interesting seasonal offerings.
The playlist is on the website – along with an email link and comments page.
Both Channel 292 and WBCQ as well as WWCR can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.
In the meantime – thank you for spreading the word about Encore – Classical Music on Shortwave. And thank you to everyone for letting us know how well the signal is received where you live.
