Dear VORW Radio Listeners,
It has been almost two months since the last newsletter has been sent out, in the time that has elapsed there are several schedule changes to report.
As of Thursday (June 1st) transmissions to East Asia on 9875 kHz and transmissions to Europe on 11580 kHz will be discontinued. The transmission on 9875 kHz has been discontinued due to low modulation of the signal, causing listeners difficulty to hear what is being said during the broadcast. The 11580 kHz transmission is being discontinued due to poor signals in the target area.
Despite the bad news, starting June 1st, a transmission on 7730 kHz at 0000 UTC (8 PM Eastern) will begin, targeting listeners in Western North America. This transmission will be heard every Thursday. There is also a new transmission on 7490 kHz at 2200 UTC (6 PM Eastern) every Sunday to Eastern North America - you could even tune in to that broadcast tomorrow!
Here is the Transmission Schedule:
6 PM Eastern - 11 PM BST - 9955 kHz to South America
8 PM Eastern - 1 AM BST - 7490 kHz to North America
8 PM Eastern - 1 AM BST - 9395 kHz to North America
