Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, TomL, who writes:
Propagation is very good. Reach Beyond Australia is now picked up with regularity from my noisy Northern Illinois Condominium. I find it fascinating to hear the different 15-minute language programs, including indigenous music, in Hindi, Tamil, different Burmese dialects, etc. Of course, since it is a Christian broadcaster, the music and teachings are about Jesus as Lord. However, all of the programs are authentically created inside the target country and uploaded to the Western Australian computer server in order to be broadcast. Here is a link on archive.org where I spliced 2 mornings of (mostly) music:
Also, it just so happens this week that Jeff White, hosting the popular WaveScan radio program, interviewed the CEO of Reach Beyond Australia, Dale Stagg, who explains the origins and continued mission of Reach Beyond Global as a continuation of HCJB’s shortwave radio vision established in 1931.
Thank you for sharing this, Tom!
11:30 UTC on 11905 khz, and 1200-1400 UTC on 15460 and 11900 khz. I must be receiving it over the Long path since it is beamed towards India, then skips towards Europe and finally to North America. Very bouncy signal. Personally, I like to see Christian broadcasters showcase indigenously created music which would fit the message of what Scripture teaches, all nations turning towards God. However, there are lots of sermons and such, so that is why I cut out that and made the music compilation.
Note that other Asian stations also coming in well. South Korea KBS at 1300-1400 on 15575 khz in English, for instance. If you like Chinese music, try to catch China Radio International in Portuguese at one of these times later in the day:
9410 2200-2300 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Kashi (a)
9535 1900-2000 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Baoji Xinjie
9685 2200-2300 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Kashi (a)
9710 0000-0100 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Kashi (a)
9730 1900-2000 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Kashi (a)
9765 1900-2000 China Radio International China Portuguese 1234567 Beijing Matoucun
By the way, the new ShortwaveDB web site seems up to date and easy to use, although it cannot sort each column.
Hope this helps.
What time UTC did you log them? I miss having my morning coffee while listening to Radio Australia.
The server ate my reply. Here it is again:
1130 UTC 11905 khz. 1200-1400 UTC 15460 & 11900 khz.
KBS South Korea also 1300-1400 on 15545khz in English
China Radio International has music on most of their Portuguese broadcasts later in the day, just look those up in ShortWaveDB which seems to be up-to-date.
Hope that helps!
CRI Portuguese coming in now weak on 11760 khz, nice instrumental Chinese music.
Sorry, 2200 UTC
