Woofferton : 80th Anniversary : Special broadcasts Tue 17 Oct   
Sunday, October 15 2023

The three xxx00 frequencies on the DOC-file-prints
are the corresponding centre frequencies
of the various metre bands / and the Woofferton curtain technical parameter,
for handling the DWL software ?

Note also in the Europe AM map, the frequency shown is 17800, instead of the headed 17785, and the Europe DRM map shows 11800 instead of the headed 11725 kHz.

Note the fine print on the N American map in the doc - showing 15300 instead of headed 15245, as also still in the ``final`` msg below; perhaps changed due to warnings about N Korea QRM on 15245. Conveniently per Aoki & EiBi there is already a 1330-1430 gap between France and Uzbekistan usage on 15300. Glenn

With all now in place this is the most likely the final message about the WOF Special broadcasts!

Hi All,

Could you be so kind as to promulgate the following extra transmissions from Woofferton and the new information.

Woofferton Transmitting Station UK - 80th Anniversary - October 17, 2023

To mark this anniversary Encompass Digital Media at WOF will be running a special programme on HF :

Tuesday 17th October 2023 from 1330 - 1430 UTC/GMT

Sender 95 Marconi (BD272 from 1963) 250 kW AM 15245 kHz Array 928 294* for North America

Sender 96 Riz 250 kW AMC 17785 kHz Array 904A 114* for Europe and beyond.

Sender 92 Riz 110 kW DRM 11725 kHz Array 909A 114* for Europe and beyond.

There will be an opening interval signal on all three frequencies.

The programme content will be historical facts of WOF in BBC, VoA, Radio Free Europe,
R Liberty ,CBC etc and the later privatised times; DW and VoV for example,
as well as up-to-date information on DRM as well as personal recollections from many former WOF staff. There will be station idents of services over the years.

There will be a special e-QSL card and the chance to enter a competition to win a historic station artifact and a Woofferton 80th coffee mug

I am pleased to report that it will be streamed from London as part of the WRN offering and the details are below.

It will be on WRN English globally, this would then go out on Hotbird 13G, Astra 2G (Sky and Virgin Media), Intelsat 20 and Galaxy 19.

Webstreams are also available on the Encompass website.

How to Listen - Encompass Marketing

QSLs will be verified and reports can be sent to: radio@encompass.tv

Here are some coverage plots that have been released for the three frequencies.

They may be of dx-enthusiast interest. We, at Encompass,will be interested to see the reception reports and the actual places where the transmissions land as against those shown by the plots.
