Glenn Hauser`s World of Radio

HOME presents... SELECTED ENGLISH LANGUAGE DX\SWL\MEDIA PROGRAMS ON SHORTWAVE Plus a few selected Mailbags and other goodies! November 18, 2014 Compiled by Glenn Hauser Updates and correxions from users and userettes are always welcome. Major time and frequency changes occured October 26 with B-14 season and November 2 with the standard time season in North America. See WORLD OF RADIO SCHEDULE for complete listings including non-shortwave outlets. WRMI: From Nov 1, the new Global 24 service on 9395 adds several WORLD OF RADIO times, also Media Network Plus, Happy Station, Wavescan, and own Mailbag. Schedule is constantly being revised. Info here as of early UT Nov. 15. See G24 Sked NEW ZEALAND: FINAL edition of MAILBOX was the week of August 4! See below for audio archive which we hope will be maintaned a while. KBS World Radio`s own schedule not updated for a year, but probably not (m)any changes. Dates for 2-weekly broadcasts (Turkey) are projected, and may be disrupted by holidays. Confirmations of appearances or non- appearances are welcome. In 2014, Turkey`s DX Corner now alternates with Letterbox, moved in from Wednesdays. If you see some strange Havana frequencies here: we include confirmed and pervasive mixing products: reality. Many broadcasts on WRMI 9955 are jammed by Cuba. Please direct complaints to Arnie Coro Nevertheless, we include his program and try to keep up with changes.
