An open letter to the BBG

Keith’s letter focuses on the importance of shortwave radio from the perspective of a broadcaster and of someone who has traveled to remote areas in Asia.

BBG Watch published Keith’s letter yesterday and featured it on their website.

Mark Your Calendars: PCJ Media tests new shortwave transmitters February 16

pcjWhile so many broadcasters are cutting or eliminating shortwave broadcasting, there is one who has built a new transmission site in Taiwan and has ambitious goals for the future: PCJ Media! Mark your calendars–though no frequencies yet, PCJ has announced a date and time for their first test:

(Source: PCJ Media)


The first phase of PCJ’s own relay is completed. There are four phases to be completed until the station will be up and running to full capacity.

Technical Data:

  • 1 /20kw
  • 1/5kw
  • 2/1kw
  • 2/curtain type antennas
  • 2/horizontal dipole type antennas
  • 4/Orban Optimods

On February 16, 2013 we will conduct our first test. It will begin at 1600UTC until 1800UTC. The test will be done using the 2/1kw transmitters. Both will be directed to South East China. One frequency to be directed to Fujian Province and the second frequency directed to  Guangxi Province.

Frequencies for this test will be published closer to the date of transmission. We have been given permission to use out of band frequencies. At the moment we are looking at around 12100 to 12500khz and 11400 to 11500khz. This was decided since these will be running 1kw and to reduce any type of interference it would be better to transmit in this range.
