Empire Radio to return for its 40th birthday

Chris Cooper on Facebook: "To celebrate the 40th birthday of Empire Radio, the original team has re-united for a special one-off broadcast.

"With programmes presented in our own style, mixing music and comedy, Keith Rogers, Chris Cooper and Albert Hall will be on the air this Sunday, 22 July, from 1000 hours BST, with a repeat from 1800 hours.

"The exact frequency will be determined on the day, but is expected to be around 6265KHz, although it could be anywhere between 6200 and 6325.

"I hope listeners, old and new, will be able to tune in. Sorry it clashes with a broadcast weekend from the Ross Revenge, but we couldn't change our birthday! If all goes well, maybe the programmes will be repeated, later in the year. In that connection, if an internet radio station, out there, is interested in carrying the shows, please get in touch."

Channel 292 shutdown report fake

An email claiming to be from German low-power shortwave station Channel 292 which said the station will have to shutdown for three months from tomorrow (July 13) is a fake.

In the message the email said: "I have to shut down the transmitter for three months beginning 13th July at 0700 UTC. I have no other choice to do this because part of the transmitter needs replaced and I cannot get this part fast it needs to be made from the company."

It was 'signed' by the station owner Rainer Ebling.

But on the WRTH Facebook page  Rainer said: "This is fake. Forget all messages, that don't come from our normal address. Maybe you can spread the truth. You see, the fake mail still uses our old address."

To see the latest schedule for Channel 292 relays visit the station website at:
