Channel 292 updates

British DX Club member Alan Gales gives more details about some of the stations broadcasting via
Channel 292

'WORD OF DELIVERENCE' which will be on from 0600 to 0700 UTC for at least the next 5 weeks on Saturdays and Sundays (I remember the film well!):-)

'SM RADIO INTERNATIONAL' will be another regular with its rock n' roll oldies show every Saturday from 0900 to 1200 UTC.

'RADIO WAVES INTERNATIONAL' also now seems to be another regular on Saturday mornings, and has a slot from 0900 to 1000 UTC.

Starting on the 5th of April, 'CHRISTIAN MEDIA NETWORK' will be on air on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1500 to 1600 UTC.

Monday 4th of April see the first appearance of German language station 'SATZENTRALE' from 1600 to 1700 UTC. I think this is a programme about satellite reception from what I can gather.

The lovely Cuban music station 'FROM THE ISLE OF MUSIC' is now a regular on Tuesdays from 1900 to 2000 UTC

Sadly there will be no more 'DigiDX' via this channel for the forseeable future, and Kim Elliot reported in his latest VOA Radiogram information, that the German regulator has ruled that digital modes are not allowed in the Broadcast Bands. Because of this there will be no MFSK on The Mighty KBC either this weekend. DigiDX should still appear on WRMI, it's just the German transmitters that the ban seems to apply to thankfully.

What a pity, hard to see what harm they were doing, and the VOA tests have proved time and again what a useful mode this is under poor conditions and when interference is affecting the channel.

Kim also mentioned that the DigiDX transmissions via WRMI in Florida, will be on Sunday at 2130-2200 UTC on 15770 kHz, and 2330-2400 UTC on 11580 kHz.

'FLYING CIRCUS ROCK SHOW' is now twice weekly with its one hour show of classic rock, at 1600 UTC on Fridays and 1900 UTC on Sundays.

'AUTHENTIC ROCK RADIO' is now another station with a regular slot at 1600 UTC on Tuesdays, and 'RADIO NORTHERN IRELAND' moves to a new earlier regular slot on Mondays from 1700 to 1900 UTC.

'MENNONITE RADIO' and 'BROAD SPECTRUM RADIO' are regulars on Sunday from 1500 to 1600 UTC, and the one hour version of Broad Spectrum appears on Mondays now from 1400 to 1500 UTC just before the DARC Radio repeat.

Other broadcasts to look out for are 'FREE RADIO SKYBIRD' on Saturday 2nd of April at 1600 to 1700 UTC, and THE RARITIES SHOW' right after this at 1700 to 1800 UTC. That is then followed by 'RADIO SYLVIA'
from 1800 to 2200, and then the new weekly Italian language 'BCL NEWSprogramme from 2200 to 2300 UTC. This station is now also a regular on Sundays as well from 1100 to 1200 UTC, which is right after DARC Radio's 100kW transmission from Moosbrun.

'POPRADIO OSTFRIESLAND' makes another appearance from 1300 to 1500 UTC on Sunday, along with the other enjoyable Sunday regulars such as Goldrausch6070 and SuperClan Radio.

Be sure to check for any late additions or changes at:

Finally, the Shortwave Service at Kall now shows details of the two  Radio Canada International broadcasts, and these are:

1430 to 1530 UTC on Saturday 2nd of April on 6005.0 kHz in the French language, and on 7310 kHz in English from 1400 to 1430 UTC.

Again things do get moved around, especially as we are only just into the new A-16 schedule, so do check their website for any late alterations to be sure of not missing any of them.

What with Radio Joystick on 7330 kHz at 1000 UTC on Sunday, all the HLR programmes, and Hobart Radio International on 7310 kHz on Sunday at 1500UTC as well, it looks like we're in for a very busy weekend on the
German relay channels.
