New show from Texas Radio Shortwave

Texas Radio Shortwave, an American free radio station, has announced the first in a series of every-so-often programs featuring listener-curated music.

The inaugural Treasure Chest of Texas Music will hold Texas artists’ songs selected by German listener Robert Kipp.  It will be broadcast at 1800 UTC on July 18, 2020.  International commercial broadcaster Channel 292 in Germany will transmit the program on 3955 kHz and 6070 kHz with a power of 10 kW.

Listeners outside Europe may wish to tune to this broadcast using a European software-defined radio (SDR) like the one at the University of Twente in The Netherlands.  The URL is http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/.

A limited-edition commemorative electronic verification will be available for listeners sending correct, detailed reception reports.  The email address is texasradiosw@gmail.com.

Reception reports must include times, song titles, the text of announcements, a SINPO/SIO signal rating, information on receiver and antenna, and comments on the program content. Listeners using a remote SDR should mention that.  Texas Radio Shortwave would like to receive audio clips along with written reports.

North American free radio stations are not licensed. Hobbyists run most of them purely for fun, although some have political or religious agendas.  Most free radio stations transmit using Single Side Band with modern amateur radio equipment; others use Amplitude Modulated vintage or homemade equipment.  It is common for free radio stations to broadcast images using Slow Scan TV.

Texas Radio Shortwave sails in international waters off the South Texas coast.  Its programs are broadcast in North America and Europe.
