FRSH--Programme-Schedule for Sunday July 24th, 31stth & August 7th 2022
Home:    http://www.frsholland.nl/20-latest-news/161-frs-summer-splash-2022.html

Sunday July 24th will see the kick off of the FRS 'Summer Splash' Event. Two years ago- in the 2020 Summer- saw the first edition of this event. FRS will be on air on three consecutive Sunday evenings. All programmes will be thematic, like we did in the past few years during the Summer period. Instead of full programming, each of these Sunday evenings will last two hours and will be aired between 19:00- 21:00 UTC

Frequencies will be 7700//5800 as well as 6185 kHz.
Important: on July 31st only 7700//5800 will be used! For the latest accurate info check this website! Of course there's also a streaming schedule. Correct reception reports will be verified with one of our 9 QSL cxards from the 'FRS Through the Years' series. Hard copies can be obtained via our Herten maildrop.

Algerian Radio testing new SW transmitters  View Printable Version 
Sunday, July 24 2022

Algerian Radio has started testing from their new SW sites at Ouargla
and/or Bechar, where installation of new 300 kW Ampegon transmitters has
been underway for several years to cover the Sahel region. TDA facebook
page reported yesterday (21 July) that technicians at Berkaoui (near
Ouargla) are preparing for the launch of the new SW centre there.

Radio Algiers heard since tune-in at 1600 UTC today on 15340 kHz with
low audio modulation, also noted since 2045 tune-in in parallel on 15100
kHz with a much stronger signal and better audio. Programming mosting in
Arabic, with some French. Currently (at 2110 UTC) 15100 and 15340 are in
parallel with the web feed of Radio Algerie Chaine 1 in Arabic.

The schedule so far does not reflect HFCC registrations. The registered
schedule also includes the relays via Issoudun (France).

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 Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 2, The 3rd movement of Mahler's Titan Symphony, and the Violin Concerto from Sibelius.
After that Mendelssohn's overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream, part of Ravel's Daphnis and Chloé, and  the fourth movement of the Schubert Violin Sonata in G minor.
The programme ends with The Oboe Concerto C Major composed by Mozart and the first movement of Schubert's Unfinished Symphony.
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.
