Hello Glenn... I have been in correspondance with Radio Austria International's Listener's Department, and am passing on the following info. Here is their email to me, in response to my query as to their possible shutdown:

Dear listener, Thank you very much for your e-mail! Unfortunately we have to tell you that the rumors are true. The directors of the ORF Corporation are thinking about the complete shut down of ROI. We have no detailed information about it so far because we only start to have meetings on our future today. But it seems that the situation right now is rather serious. It would help us quite a lot if our listners would open state how they think about ROI and that they want us to stay on air. This could be done per mail or letter to the ORF headquater or to us and we will forward it to the headquarter. The listeners who send regularly reception reports have already began to send letters or mails to our support. But it is very important that our regular listener's who don't write to us on regular base state their mind to the director too, so that they may see that we have a lot of listeners who care about our broadcasts and future. We appreciate any reaction on the possibly shut down of Radio Austria International from you. Best to address your letter or e-mail to our office, we will redirect it to the proper receiver. For e-mail: and for mail: Radio Austria International z.H. Hr. Michael Kerbler Argentinierstr. 30A A-1040 Vienna AUSTRIA. Mr. Kerbler is our chef-journalist, so it would be best to send a letter to him. We really appreciate your proposal to post our situation on different webpages and message forums, so that other friends of our service as well know about the situation. With kind regards, Radio Austria International Listener's Relations Department.

Let's hope SWL's start writing! Fred Newlin, New York, November 13.

Hurricane webcast options
Date: Wed, 2 Oct 2002 17:42:21 -0400

Hello Glenn,

I have done some webcast research in preparation for the arrival soon of the 
now-serious Hurricane Lili. The eye of the storm is presently forecast to 
come ashore Thursday midway between New Orleans and the Louisiana/Texas 
border, sometime between 1700 and 2000 UT.  For those out of the range of 
870 WWL New Orleans, I offer these webcast options:

There are no major cities in the direct path other than New Orleans, and the 
present projection shows the worst of it missing New Orleans by perhaps 100 
miles. There are no webcasting stations in the storms direct path. Here are 
some stations immediately adjacent to the path:

KOGT AM :  A smalltown country AM at 1600 
right on the TX/LA border. Town is being evacuated but they will stay on 
air. Distorted feed. Texas State Network affiliate. Webcast:

WQYZ FM:  Gulfport/Biloxi, Mississippi, oldies, 
webcast at not immediately sure if 
station is of local origination or satellite delivered, sounded bland enough 
to be the latter.

WJZD FM:  Long Beach, Mississippi,  A small, down 
home R&B / blues format, "JZ 94.5", again right on the Atlantic coast, 
webcast at nice sound. Relaxed female DJ 
seemingly unconcerned about coming onslaught when I checked an hour ago.

Other options: New Orleans Jazz/Community FM New Orleans Radio Reading Service

News/talk stations in Houston area do not stream. The tiny number of number 
of other streaming stations in southern Louisiana are all satellite 
delivered American Family religious stations w/ no local content. (There 
oughta be a law, no?)

Beaumont TX news talk is Clear Channel - owned, no streaming allowed by 
company edict.

Some New Orleans / French Quarter webcams at:
8 cameras, updated evry 20 sec and archived, actually pretty good

New Orleans weather radio:

Strike probability map

Louisiana coastal radar via Intellicast

Louisiana coastal radar via NWS

That's all for now. Should be an interesting day. Tom Roche- Atlanta

WORLD OF RADIO ON STUDIO X, MOMIGNO, ITALY: Hi Glenn! First of all, we'd like to make our congratulations for your good job; we're glad to rebroadcast on our station your World Of Radio which is of a great success among many of our listeners. I'm writing to let you know and all radio enthusiasts of a change in our programmation concerning World of Radio. Since next Sunday, your weekly programme will be broadcast at 9.30 pm [1930 UT] instead of the usual 6.30 pm (local time). The other day and time remains the same (every Saturday at 12.30 am, always local time) [Friday 2230 UT]. This is to increase the chance for WOR to be heard by our listeners throughout Europe on the MW frequency (1584 kHz, the other 1566 is temporarily off). Best regards, (Massimiliano Marchi, RADIO STUDIO X, Sept 21)

Radio Yugoslavia has already resumed SW transmissions, as predicted in DXLD 2-147; so advance info from 2-148:

WELCOME TO WORLDOFRADIO.COM from its new host as of July 27, 2002. We sincerely hope the previous interruptions in service will no longer be a problem. We now have plenty of space, but may not re-upload all the old audio files. We are open to suggestions on certain shows people wish to hear, or how far back in general we should store them. Recent WORs are elsewhere, at the site where links take you. An approximate 3-month archive is at World Radio Network. If anyone finds a bad or dead link here, feel free to notify us, so we can work on it.

PREVIOUS DX LISTENING DIGESTS: we have not yet uploaded individual DXLD text issues from the first two quarters of 2002, since they are duplicated in the two html files for the first and second quarters (and in general, correxions have only been entered in the latter). Thus the links to each text issue from the CONTENTS lead nowhere for January-June, 2002. If there is sufficient demand for access to individual text issues, we will consider providing them.

DXLD YEAR TO DATE HTML ARCHIVE --- well, really Quarter-to-date, part 3 of 2002 is availble from 2100 UT July 8, containing DXLD 2-106, 2-107, 2-108 and 2-109 initially. As it`s relatively small at this point, it should load a lot quicker and be easier to search than parts 2 and 1.

WWCR advises that the Thu 2030 replacement last week was temporary, a make-good for some paid program which didn`t air as scheduled in its own slot (and such make-goods are always possible in any WOR slot on WWCR). The future of our UT Mon 0000 airing is less certain.

WWCR: WOR was also replaced by something else, Health Talk Today, UT Mon July 8 at 0000 on 9475. Standard lament. But should be on RFPI at 0030.

DX LISTENING DIGEST 2-109 has been posted July 7.

RFPI: Again Sunday July 7, WOR at special time 1830, heard on webcast, so 1138 also UT Mon 0030, 0630 on 7445-USB, 15039.

MUNDO RADIAL: WWCR agrega una segunda emision cada semana, los miercoles a las 2100 en 15825, confirmado el 10 de julio, ademas de la hora acostumbrada de los viernes 2115v en la misma, segun su esquema imprimido de julio.

WWCR: the usual first airing of WOR, Thu 2030 on 15825, was replaced without notice by something else July 4. And to think, this slot was the only reason we rushed to produce WOR a day early. We don`t yet know if this be temporary or permanent.

DX LISTENING DIGEST 2-107 has been posted July 4.

WBCQ: Yet again this week, July 3, WOR was not carried on 17495 Wednesday at 2200, despite Allan Weiner`s assurances, apparently due to a lack of internal communication at the station. They will keep trying....

DX LISTENING DIGEST 2-106 has been posted July 2.

RFPI: As of June 30, schedule curtailed, so a number of WOR/COM broadcasts are suspended (tho webcasting may proceed if in the usual timeframe): 21815 is off; 7445-USB and 15039 both run 2200-0800. All our schedule versions have been updated to reflect this.

WBCQ: Contrary to previous info from WBCQ, it appears they cannot use 17495 after 2200 UT, so WOR will be only on 7415 for the first broadcast, Wednesday. AAnd this week only, the repeat started at 0434, since there was a double-dose of Amos & Andy.

** ITALY [non?]. Dear Glenn, don't know if you get yet this information from Roberto Scaglione. Radio GAP during the NGO Forum for food sovereignty / Forum Roma from 9 till 13 june 2002 will transmit two programs with alternative news to permit to the signals to arrive also in the countries where exist totalitarian governments (not said which ones) for a freedom of informations. Transmissions are scheduled at 1900-2000 UT on 13865 kHz and at 0430-0530 UTC on 13840 kHz (not explained from what station they will have them relayed... BBC... DW... VOA ?????) For more details or stream audio please visit : Reception reports may be sent only with e-mail message to : Thanks for your good work, please continue in this way, it is PERFECT !!!! (Dario Monferini, Italy, June 9, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

Strangely, if you switch to the English, French or Spanish page, you get an additional audio link at the top, and different times and SW frequencies (still in Italian) which are obviously IRRS, 2100-2200 UT 3985, 0600-0700 7120. That station has also used and tested the 13 MHz band recently. Perhaps the 3 and 7 MHz scheduling is outdated, replaced by 13 MHz? (Glenn Hauser, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

WWCR: a printed schedule sent May 9 shows one of our WOR broadcasts replaced by something else: UT Mon 0500 on 3210. Not sure when this goes into effect.

WOR, COM, MR SCHEDULE has been updated, as has MASTER TIME SCHEDULE where Radio Enlace times by satellite have also been refined.

WORLD OF RADIO ON WJIE: The new WJIE Shortwave in Kentucky, successor to WJCR, has offered to broadcast WORLD OF RADIO three times per weekday, and in rotation on weekends, on 7490. This started May 13. However, it appears not to be up to full 50 kW power yet; in fact we have been unable to hear it, nor has Ivan Grishin in Ontario. Specified WOR times are: M-F 1245, 1845, Tu-Sa 0645 UT. We would be interested in informal reception reports from many locations. The number of repeats is expected to decline as WJIE accumulates paid programming but the 1245 airings are supposed to be secure indefinitely.

Later this was revised to 1500-2100. Pacifica coverage itself is supposed to run 1500-2200. This would pre-empt all WOR and COM times on RFPI Sat, UT Sun. However, RFPI could not get internet feed yet at 1500, and we are to check back half-hourly. Well, at 1745 recheck, RFPI still did not have it and COM was on as scheduled, so perhaps it and WOR will not be pre-empted after all. We do get the Pacifica coverage, e.g. via KPFK. BTW, RFPI antenna has been improved on 7445-USB evenings, 0200-1200, reports wanted. Later: never mind: RFPI, apparently never got hooked up for this. It was also on C-SPAN.

We also touched on the CARP (Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel) proposal which will eliminate most independent US-based or related webcasters from the net. Because of the preparation for aforementioned live webcast, we didn't have time to set-up the weekend schedule which WOR fits into. Instead, I am running WOR and a few other programs this week on a continuous loop which can be found on Radio LavaLamp Program 2.

David informs us that they did not manage to get the shortwave transmitter on the air in time for the launch, but hoped to have it running by Tuesday afternoon (26 Feb). The frequency is 9555 kHz (not 9550 as mentioned in press reports), and they're initially using an old 10 kw Collins transmitter... © Radio Netherlands Media Network. -- Hans Johnson of Cumbre found out that SW schedule is 0600-0830 and 1700-1930 UT.

RFPI: because of the Homelessness Marathon [see DXLD 2-018], UT Wed Feb 6 at 0000-1400, WOR 1116 will have a special airing Tue Feb 5 at 2300 to replace the ones pre-empted by the marathon. COM 02-01 should follow at its usual 1400 time.

Monday, Feb. 4: after almost 5 days without AC or internet, we are back and starting to get caught up. WOR 1116 will be available ondemand by the end of this UT day.

Sunday, Feb. 3: The ice storm did bring down power lines; we lost AC at 2223 UT Jan. 30, and it is still not back as of 2000 UT Feb. 3. We are fine, since we have gas heat, but our trees were heavily damaged, and have been unable to get online until now, once the library reopened. We still cannot upload WOR 1116 to our website, nor provide its summary, nor prepare or distribute any new issues of DXLD. It will take quite a while to get caught up, once power is on at WOR again. Fortunately, we were able to finish WOR 1116 on Thursday using battery equipment, and phone feed it to WWCR and RFPI. WRN is so high-tech that phone feeds cannot be accepted, so they were planning to rerun last week`s show. Thus those stations and listeners depending on WRN for WOR 1116 could not get it; however, it will be in their archive ondemand eventually. Since the outage occurred just before our scheduled WBCQ broadcasts on UT Jan. 31, edition 1116 could not be completed and provided to them in time, and 1115 re-ran. Just a few days away from our yahoo and hotmail accounts is enough for them to overload and/or be disabled. Many report bounces. Instead of retrying to send there, please use in the meantime, which we believe to be viable. We will be back to our usual level of activity as soon as circumstances allow. Online time at the library is limited, and not a great deal can be accomplished there, except now to update you on the situation. Nothing much can be updated yet, including our Calendar page, which we regret. Thanks very much to those expessing concern about how we are doing!Glenn.

Wednesday, Jan. 30: as you may have heard, an ice storm has hit Oklahoma. As of 1630 UT, we have lost major limbs of two trees. Power glitches have happened a few times, and power is out in other parts of Enid. Would not be surprised if our power, cable, phone lines come down, as the situation is only expected to worsen as the day and night progress until Thursday morning. So don`t be surprised if we are unable to do World of Radio 1116 on the usual schedule. At least we have gas heat... Glenn.

WBCQ: gets WOR by phone feed, but our phoneline was dead just when we needed it. Unlikely it will be fixed until Thursday. Perhaps WBCQ will be able to get WOR 1115 via internet in time for the 0600 UT airing. Later: yes, they did! tho started late at 0603

WWCR-1: as promised 9475 was back in use after 2200 UT in Spanish, checked Jan 23, ex-3210. This applies to MUNDO RADIAL, Fridays at 2215-2230. And probably also to the 1000-1100 hour, for WORLD OF RADIO, Fridays 1030. Ya el 23 de enero WWCR-1 se encuentra de regreso en 9475 en vez de 3210, bastante mejor para MUNDO RADIAL, los viernes a las 2215-2230.

DX LISTENING DIGEST 2-011 has been posted January 18.

WWCR-1 will be resuming use of 9475 at 1000-1100 and 2100-2300 within the next couple of weeks (Adam Lock, Ask WWCR fortnight of Jan 11) That means WOR Fri 1030 and Mundo Radial, Fri 2215 will finally revert from 3210 to this much better frequency.

Although the WWCR-1 program schedule dated Jan. 1 shows On the Go Ministries replacing WOR`s first airing, Thu 2130 on 15685, WWCR assures us that this was a mistake; instead, it replaces the preceding programs at 2100 and 2115, and WOR continues at 2130; confirmed January 17.
