A bunch of radio professionals get together at a home in Southwest Connecticut for great fun and food ever couple of summers. On Saturday September 9th from 7pm to 10pm eastern (2300 Saturday to 0200 UTC Sunday) Bob’s Backyard BBQ Radio Show will take place, hosted by Bob Gilmore and a bevy of Northeast radio professional. They will be playing 60s 70s and 80s oldies/classic rock music while also giving out an email address to take comments/requests.

The programming will originate LIVE from a studio at Bob’s home and will be broadcast over WRMI Shortwave @7780 kHz.

This will be quite a good signal for the east coast of North America and also into Western Europe. This might have some decent coverage into the Midwestern US and Canada too, depending on conditions that night.

Hello listeners,

KBS World Radio English Service is carrying out a major frequency and time adjustment on shortwave as we expand our programming as of September 4.

First of all, we will start a new two-and-a-half hour broadcast on 9.770Mhz at 0800h UTC toward Southeast Asia. The one-hour broadcast on 9.515Mhz toward Europe will expand to two hours, and will start at 1500h UTC. Our broadcast toward India will be on 9.785Mhz instead of the current 9.880Mhz and expand to three hours, starting at 1400h UTC.
Unfortunately, as we add more hours and programs to several frequencies, we will no longer be broadcasting on 9.690Mhz, 6.095Mhz and 7.275Mhz.

For more information on the frequency adjustment and program schedule, please visit our website at world.kbs.co.kr.

Thank you!

Shortwave Radio Schedules adds Premium upgrade

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor and app developer, Stephen Cooper, who shares this press release:

7th August 2017 – Shortwave Radio Schedules adds Premium upgrade

Popular Android app Shortwave Radio Schedules has this week been updated to add two of
the most requested features as a premium upgrade to the app.

“Now” and “Favourites” options have been added to the app which currently is free in the
Android Play Store.

Current free features which will always remain free include the ability to search EiBi and
AOKI shortwave schedules by station, time or frequency. Search results are shown in a list
and can then be displayed on a map showing beam directions and broadcast power. The log
feature also allows a log to be kept of stations heard including SINPO rating with the ability
to export logs or share individual loggings via social media.

The new Now tab shows what stations are currently broadcasting using an innovative “radio
dial” style interface to browse through each shortwave band in the same way as a radio
would be used to tune up and down the bands.

The Favourites option allows stations to be “starred” and added to a favourites list making it
easy to quickly lookup the frequencies of stations regularly listened to. These favourite
stations can also be shown on a map.

All options including maps and logs are available offline (once the initial schedule download has taken place) making the app perfect for taking on DXpeditions where internet connectivity is not available.

The App is free in the Google Play Store with the Premium upgrade (adding Now / Favourites tab) available for GBP£1.49 / USD$1.49 / EUR€1.69.
