The Requiem For Radio QSL Card (Source: RFR Facebook)
I received a number of messages from Post readers who logged one or more of the simultaneous Requiem For Radio broadcasts. Many discovered that each frequency of the broadcast was actually a separate track of the piece.
Indeed, SWLing Post contributor, Shelby Brant, posted the following comment yesterday:
Listening right now, 11580, 9690, 9620, and 5130 are on, but nothing on 6850. To get the most out of this you really ought to have a receiver on all the frequencies at the same time, because each station is broadcasting something slightly different, but if you listen to all at the same time, they go together.
Later, Shelby added:
Here’s a link to a very impromptu video I put together of how I was listening to the broadcast, I managed to gather up 4 receivers (this was after I posted earlier) and tuned them to the 4 active frequencies. Part way through I turn the other three receivers down and tune to the individual stations one at a time to give an idea of what the 4 sounded like on their own, then it goes back to all 4 together again for the end of the video

Very –VERY- cool, Shelby! Amazing! Thank you for sharing!
And what a unique listening opportunity this presents us (thank you, Amanda Dawn Christie!).
If you missed the last on-air performance, you still have two more chances to catch it.
