Additional VORW Radio test transmissions this weekend

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, TheReportOfTheWeek, who writes:

Starting this Thursday (March 1st) I will be conducting a test transmission of VORW Radio Int. on 5950 kHz via radio station WRMI. The intended reception area is the state of Florida! This is understandably tricky considering that the transmitter site is in the target area itself, but this test is to determine if listeners in Florida can be adequately served via this Florida-based site.

Also, here is the full broadcast schedule, each show features some misc talk and commentary and some listener requested music. It can make for a fun listen!
