You can help keep Encore on the air:
Encore is a one-man operation. WRMI and Channel 292 are very generous with their air-time but Encore still costs around 200 Dollars/Euros a month to broadcast.
If you can - send a small contribution to help Encore keep going.
There is a PayPal donation button on the homepage of the website - www.tumbril.co.uk - which folks can use if they want to. If PayPal is no good for you then send me an email and we'll sort something else out.
Thank you.
A big thanks to the folks who have donated already.
This week's Programme - First broadcast this coming Saturday on Channel 292 - starts with some of the suite for the ballet Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky, part of one of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, and then two interpretations of other people's work by contemporary US composer Caroline Shaw.
After that we'll listen to a cello sonata from Claude Debussy and the Octet in E Flat Major by Beethoven.
Channel 292 can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their site with a google search.
A very good site for online SDR receivers all over the world is: http://kiwisdr.com/public/  Click the 'Map' button in the top left of the screen.
Thank you for spreading the word about Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave on Radio Tumbril.

In months with a fifth Wednesday US date (Thursday world date, the next

2. Submission should be less than a half hour. Submissions of a half
hour or more will be treated as a program audition.

3. Submission deadline is second of month of broadcast world date (the
next WBCQ Open Mic is in June, so submission deadline for June is June 1
US date).

4. The submission must include the real name and contact information for
the submitter (no exceptions)

5. Radio Angela reserves the right not to use submitted content for any
reason including no reason at all.

EDXC, Conference, cancelled  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 11 2022

Dear friends,

Regretfully, we have needed to take the decision to cancel the BDXC Conference scheduled for May in Bucharest.

With just a few weeks to go, there were not enough delegates signed up to make it viable to hold a conference. This is, perhaps, understandable with people concerned about travel due to Covid-19, plus the war in neighbouring Ukraine.

We will arrange another Zoom meeting for EDXC members and the wider DX community, with speakers, in a few months time.

In the meantime, some good news in that EDXC co-founder Anker Petersen has published the latest Trends in tropical bands broadcasting and Domestic Broadcasting Survey.

Anker writes: “Since the Danish Short Wave Club International published the first annual Tropical Bands Survey in 1973, I have registered which stations are active, based upon loggings from our members and other DXers around the world. Here is an updated status outside Europe and North America, where Clandestine and Pirate stations are not included.”

Both of the documents are available at the DSWCI website, to study and enjoy. Click on the two blue boxes on the left side of the website for the current versions, and also to look back over previous versions. 

Best wishes,

Chrissy Brand and Christian Ghibaudo, EDXC
