Regular Broadcast times of Encore are:

Our email is  encoretumbril@gmail.com. Informal reception reports as well as those requesting eQSL welcome.
The website is www.tumbril.co.uk where we show transmission times and frequencies, the playlist for the most recent programme, more information about Radio Tumbril, and the email link.
This week's programme begins with part of an oboe concerto and then a couple of songs prompted by Shakespeare's plays Cymbeline and The Tempest. After that we have a duet for violin and viola by Halvorsen and some of Mozart's Flute Quartet in A major. Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture next, followed by a piano trio composed by the 19th century composer Louise Farrenc.
The programme ends with the prelude from The Cunning Little Vixen and as much of Haydn's piano sonata No. 33 as we can fit in.
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.

EDXC Update September 2020  View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 03 2020


We have updated the EDXC Countries List, which was last published in 2014. It is at the EDXC website https://edxcnews.wordpress.com  

As our 2020 conference has been postponed for a year, we are considering holding a short, online EDXC meeting this autumn, probably in October or November.  

This would be using Zoom or a similar video conferencing tool. It would consist of EDXC updates and plans for the 2021 conference in Bucharest plus a couple of presentations on DX matters. 

Do you think this is a good idea and would you like to attend or take part? Perhaps there is a presentation you would like to make or a short talk you would like to give? Please let us know. Thank you!
