THREE HOURS OF NEW TEXAS RADIO SHORTWAVE SHOWS ON WRMI, 5950 KHZ, BEGINNING AT 2300 UTC ON SATURDAY, JUNE 18  View Printable Version

THREE HOURS OF NEW TEXAS RADIO SHORTWAVE SHOWS ON WRMI, 5950 KHZ, BEGINNING AT 2300 UTC ON SATURDAY, JUNE 18

WRMI broadcasts three new one-hour TRSW shows on 5950 kHz, beginning at 2300 UTC on Saturday, June 18, and ending at 0200 UTC on Sunday, June 19.

The shows are two episodes of the old-time radio thriller Suspense, an hour of Reggae music by Texas musicians, and a one-hour celebration of Juneteenth, June 19, 1865, when Texas slaves learned they'd been freed.

TRSW has an eQSL for each show, available for an emailed reception report covering at least 20 minutes of the show, sent to texasradiosw@gmail.com.

=====

Suspense (2300 UTC, Saturday, June 18) 

Suspense was a radio series broadcast on CBS from 1942 through 1962.  One of the great radio shows of the Golden Age of Radio, Suspense, was subtitled "radio's outstanding theater of thrills." The show usually featured leading Hollywood actors of the era.  

The digitally restored shows are from August and June 1942.

=====

Texas Reggae (0000 UTC, Sunday, June 19)

While researching the songs, we learned the groups had some native Texans, but many members were from parts of the US where reggae's more prevalent than in Texas.  These artists are now headquartered in Texas, so we're claiming them for this program.  

The reggae genre's much like rock or country or soul.  While there are songs we might think are pure reggae, most reggae artists don't confine their music to one style.  You'll hear that variety in the tunes we'll play.

Here's the list of featured artists:

Audic Empire (Feat. Collin Gee)
Bum Lucky
Burning Slow
Dem Roots Music
Idoljob
Lion Heights
Roots From The Clay
Sharac Band
Smokey James & The Mau Mau Chaplains
Soulfiya.

=====

Juneteenth (0100 UTC, Sunday, June 19)

This broadcast commemorates June 19, 1865, when slaves in Texas learned they'd been freed by Abraham Lincoln two and a half years earlier, in 1862.

The show features music by African-American composers.  Some of the music is performed by the artists who wrote the songs.  Other music is performed by orchestras because that's what the music was written for.

This program is a departure from the usual Texas Radio Shortwave fare because the music's not confined to Texas performers, nor are the songs about Texas.

Featured composers are:

Duke Ellington
Earth Wind & Fire (Feat. Ramsey Lewis)
Florence B. Price, Composer (Perf. by New Black Repertory Ensemble)
Jessie Montgomery, Composer (Perf. by Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra)
Margaret Bonds, Composer (Unknown Perf.)
Nina Simone
Prince
Scott Joplin
Stevie Wonder
The Sun Ra Arkestra
William Grant Still, Composer (Unknown Perf.).

Second test transmission for BBC Antarctic Special  View Printable Version 
Saturday, June 18 2022

ASCENSION ISL / UAE / U.K. Second test transmission for BBC Antarctic
Special today on Friday June 17 noted as follows:

hfcc.org database entry of ENC test special June 14, June 17 and hopefully
Tuesday final June 21 transmission read as follows

6035 2130 2145 67,73 DHA 250 203 0 216 3 Eng UAE BBC ENC 5049 ESPR4
7305 2130 2145 67,73 ASC 250 27 0 607 3 Eng G BBC ENC 5053 ESPR4
9505 2130 2145 67,73 WOF 300 182 12 618 3 Eng G BBC ENC 5059 ESPR4
2065 2130 2145 67,73 WOF 300 182 12 618 3 Eng G BBC ENC 5065 ESPR4

Test transmisssion outlets checked on various remote SDR's at Sao Paulo
Brazil by Rudolfo Grimm;
at Johannesbourg of TWR South Africa bureau SDR;
at New York state east coast of USA;
and at Athens Greece in southern Europe.

BRA RSA NY-US
6035 kHz UAE Al Dhabbaya ENC relay S=7 -85dBm S=7 -84dBm S=3 -112dBm
7305 kHz ASC Ascension ENC relay S=9+15 -62dBm S=6 -88dBm S=7 -84dBm
9505 kHz WOF Woofferton ENC site S=8 -83dBm S=6 -90dBm S=6 -92dBm
12065 kHz WOF Woofferton ENC site S=9+10 -71dBm S=6 -88dBm S=9 -76dBm

Compared to previous season years, reception in Johannesbourg RSA
was much limited down, except the balcony Ascension Island nearby signal.

In the overall view of the test transmissions, I was very surprised to
observe the negative transmission strength signal in the 31 metre band in
Brazil as well as in South Africa targets.
The same technical parameters were used on 9505 kHz as on 12065 kHz tonight
from Woofferton England site, see hfcc.org database entries.

Dave, what's going on with the WOF antenna on 9505 kHz channel tonight?
Only sunspots/propagation matter ?

7305 and 12065 kHz channels will provide the best signal on Tuesday
in British Antarctica.
