That’s not a typo, in addition to its flagship frequency 7490 kHz, WBCQ will be running staggered propagation tests of 4790 kHz during February for a new entertainment program
block sponsored by Angela and Allan Weiner and curated by Uncle Bill Tilford. When the
regular schedule begins in March, it will be 2 hours per night of music and other entertainment from around the world. Several new programs under development will participate when the regular schedule begins.
The February tests will use archival episodes of From the Isle of Music, Uncle Bill’s Melting Pot,
Marion’s Attic, Behavior Night, Rock Wave, Tom Call Theater, a Bluegrass State of Mind and Jetzt Geht’s Los!, a wonderful program from Germany of Weimar-era jazz. In March these programs will be joined by several new ones from around the world.
The first week’s tests will run from February 1-5 from 6-8pm EST (2300-0100 UTC). Each following week will run an hour later to determine optimum transmission times. An eQSL will
be available for reception reports sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
For February 6-12, tests will run from 7-9pm EST (0000-0200 EST)
