The broadcast will be on Monday 21 June from 2130-2200 utc. There are
usually three extra SW frequencies beamed to Antarctica, these have
not yet been confirmed but last year's frequencies (which may be the
same this year) were 5790 and 7360 via Woofferton and 9580 via

This year its also being carried on most of the World Service English
streams from 2132-2200, however the only shortwave outlets at this
time are to Africa on 11810 and 12095 via Ascension. For those of us
in the UK it should also be on the BBCWS DAB stream at the same time.

Its slightly shorter via the regular WS streams so to hear the full
broadcast we should listen to the special Antarctica frequencies.

Does anyone know the time and frequencies for this years broadcast on
21 June or should we assume everything will be the same as 2020? I
would guess that as we progress further into the new solar cycle
frequencies will be adjusted.

Will there be any test transmissions this year and if so when will
they take place. Sorry if I'm asking questions that are answered
elsewhere ie BBC website but I can't find anything there.

Thank you,
