WBCQ R Angela moving from 4790 to 5130  View Printable Version 
Sunday, May 15 2022

Over the next several days, WBCQ's Radio Angela will be migrating from
4790 kHz to a previous WBCQ frequency, 5130 kHz.  WBCQ hopes to maintain
the same coverage area with this move, perhaps even slightly greater in
the US and Canada as west coast CODAR will no longer be a factor. 
During the week of May 16-22, listeners might want to check both
frequencies during broadcast hours (typically 0200-04xx UTC).
