NOTE - 03:00 – 04:00 UTC Monday 5950 kHz WRMI to the US and Canada is a new frequency to improve propagation - was 9455 kHz.
NOTE - Recently WRMI has slotted in an extra transmission of Encore on 5800 kHz at 03:00 on Saturday morning. If they do it will be the first airing of the new program. The reason being that I routinely upload the fresh mp3 files on Thursday evening to Channel 292 and WRMI.
NOTE - Apologies for the persistent RTTY on the LSB of the 13:00 UTC transmissions of Encore from WRMI on 15770 audible in parts of northern Europe in recent weeks.
Special Broadcast soon:
On December 31, Radio Channel 292 will present a 2-hour special, Neujahrsgrüsse on Radio Channel 292 featuring segments from nine different music programs with classical, jazz, rock, Cuban, and volksmusik from 2300-0100 UTC on 3955 (10kw), 6070 (100kw from Moosbrunn) and 9670 (10kw) kHz. It will repeat on all three frequencies at 10kw from 0900-1100 UTC on January 1. Time for the 10kw transmissions was donated by the station. Encore will be providing classical music.
Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 program, more information about Radio Tumbril, and the email link.
This week's program starts with the overture from Mozart's The Magic Flute. Then we'll have some Erik Satie, followed by a little Stockhausen, and Abelard - by way of contrast. A Bach Partita, a Ravel Pavane, and Pastorale by Debussy follow on. The program ends with part of Mendelssohn's Violin concerto in E Minor - soloist Nicola Benedetti.
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.
