KSKO’s Paul Walker to relay a two hour Christmas program on shortwave on December 23, 2022

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor and KSKO Program Director, Paul Walker, who shares the following announcement:

Tune in for two hours of nothing but Christmas tunes December 23rd and it’s extra special because it’ll be a live worldwide broadcast of KSKO on Shortwave!!

From 2200-2400UTC 2300-0100UTC (2pm Alaska, 3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern) we’ll be live across Europe on the 250,000 watts of Spaceline Bulgaria’s 5900 kHz transmitter along with the 100KW WRMI 7570 kHz covering North America and the 100KW WRMI 9955 [Updated to 5085] kHz covering Latin America.

I’m footing the costs out of this out of my own pocket just for the heck of it!

I’m so glad you’re doing this again, Paul! We look forward to tuning in!

Spread the radio love

    Will there be any QSL cards available for listener’s reception reports? Merry Christmas from the Netherlands!

    Wow, DXer becoming the DX! That’s way cool (literally) and there’s a good chance even I’ll be able to receive it! Misread the title the first time BTW and thought “OMG, Brother Stairs is going to sour the moose milk in Alaska now?”, guess I should put new reading glasses on my wish list for Santa! 🙂

    Thanks Rob.. its the magic of radio waves which got me interested in broadcasting and made me wanna work in this field and i’ve been doing it for 20 years. The little kid magic of how radio waves works has never left me

    There’s bee na slight change

    Were moving to 4980 instead of 9955. 7570 will remain as is

    5900 remains as is.

    But the time also changes, it will be 2300-0100UTC instead of 2200-2400UTC

    Sorry. Some needed changes based on my poor job of doing a time conversion and schedule change at KSKO

    That’s pretty cool Paul!
    How many of us radio guys get their messages out with that much power? And any RF not reflected back could maybe venture out to the cosmos for centuries to come, waiting for a sensitive array to receive!
