Texas Radio Shortwave sails in international waters off the South Texas coast. Its programs are regularly broadcast in Europe and occasionally in North America.
Please tune in on October 17 for our Doug Sahm tribute program on Channel 292. Second Mate — and occasional frequency coordinator — Mr. Bunny’s particularly interested in reports from you and your listeners/readers on the 0200 broadcast on 9670 kHz.Cap’n still hasn’t decided who’ll carry TRSW programs in 2021. Channel 292’s 6070 kHz transmitter provides good European coverage but TRSW doesn’t really have a presence in NAm. Channel 292 has a new directional antenna scheduled to come online in the new few months, which might mean better reception here. WRMI and WBCQ have available airtime and provide the best alternative for US and Canadian listeners.Keep up the good work supporting the radio listening hobby.
73 and Arrgghh.
Always be yourself. Unless you can be a pirate. Then always be a pirate.
