Classical music on Short Wave - Radio Tumbril schedule

This weekend Encore - Classical Music on Radio Tumbril will be broadcast again at the NEW TIME in Europe of 11:00 UTC on SATURDAY on 6070 kHz. (This is instead of the Sunday broadcast at 15:00 UTC).
There is much less interference from adjacent channels at this time - indeed we have had several reception reports from India.

For now - the 6070 kHz repeat will continue to be on Friday evenings at 19:00 UTC - as usual.

So regular Broadcast times are:

11:00 - 12:00 UTC Saturday on 6070 kHz 
repeated 19:00 - 20:00 UTC Friday on 6070 kHz via Channel 292 (Germany).

21:00 - 22:00 UTC Saturday on 9350 kHz via WWCR (Nashville).
01:00 - 02:00 UTC Monday on 7490 kHz via WBCQ - (Maine).

A trial broadcast of Encore on 7440 kHz Sunday 09:00 UTC via Channel 292 - Sunday 19th


WWCR Nashville will broadcast the Encore on Saturday at 21:00 UTC as usual on 9350 kHz. The propagation is very good over the US and much of Canada and the signal carries to parts of western Europe too.

WBCQ Maine will send out the show on 7490 kHz at 01:00 UTC Monday to the US. (Early evening Sunday local US - obviously.)

Do let us know how well you can pick up Encore at your location by emailing to We try to reply to all emails and will send eQSL cards for full reports - though a brief report is fine.

This week's programme is chock full of interesting and provocative classical music - listen in and see if you agree.
The playlist is on the website and will be updated soon after Saturday's broadcast of the new show by Channel 292 at 11:00 UTC.

Both Channel 292 and WBCQ as well as WWCR can be pulled live off the internet if the reception is poor in your location. Easy to find their sites with a google search.

In the meantime - thank you for spreading the word about Encore - Classical Music on Shortwave. And thank you to everyone for letting us know how well the signal is received where you live.
