World of Radio Schedule as of August 14, 2014:
All times & days UT; all frequencies kHz unless otherwise noted. Subtract 5 hours from UT for CDT. W.O.R. is a listener-supported, public-service program about communications around the world, especially, but not limited to, Shortwave Broadcasting.
ANOMALY ALERTS and WHAT'S NEW -- please check every time you're here!! From Aug 11, WRMI changes: New Friday 2130 on 7570 (only frequency across N America) & 15770; UT Sun 0030 9495 replaced by Sun 0100 on 5950. From WOR 1730, podcasts also also available via Shortwave.am. Podcasts also available via TUNEIN.com. From July 13, NEW station and new time: KVOH 9975, UT Sundays 0131; tnx to Ray Robinson! Because: The Sat 2330 airing on WTWW-2, 9930, did not appear June 21 or 28 or July 5; nor did the other WTWW airings July 3, 6: Ted Randall abruptly cancelled WOR without notice also on WTWW-1. Our gratitude to George McClintock, who invited us on WTWW from its early days until now. From July 7, WRMI added another broadcast, Mondays 2100 on 15770, NE toward Europe, also good for east coast North America, but joining late or not at all until success July 28. From June, all WOR broadcasts on WRMI 9955 are on the SSE beam, not NW. Back on WBCQ 7490v: From May 21, Thursdays at 2100 and following Wednesday at 2100. But May 22, 29 replayed previous rather than new show. On June 5, new show aired promptly. WTWW-2 had been mostly off in May, so lacking Sat 2330 on 9930; resumed May 24. On May 1, WTWW-3 12105 carried WOR at 0530 & 1530 Thursday, one-time event. From April 23, Wednesday time on WRMI 9955 northwest changed from 1300 to 1315 UT. From March 24, WWRB on 5050 instead of 3195, but check both at WOR time. DST shifts went into effect Sunday March 9. Our SW broadcasts from USA shifted one UT hour earlier, mostly on same frequencies. Now updated here. From January 23, 2014, PODCASTS are again available as above. From January 29, additional time on WRMI 9955: Wednesdays 1400. Unlike all the other WRMI airings, this one is on the NW antenna across North America; but will normally be a repeat of the previous week`s show. On January 4-5, additional airings on WRMI, but not necessarily to continue: Sat 2130 on 7730 [ran for two weeks only], UT Sun 0030 on 9495. From January 6, new WOR time on Area 51 WBCQ, UT Monday 0400v on 5110v-CUSB. New time on WRMI 9955 from Dec 19: Thursday 1330 UT, still on SSE antenna but should be well audible in North America. WRMI webcast link has changed. Podcasts from WRN are no longer be available from December 16, 2013. We are considering alternatives if there is enough demand. From December 1, WRMI uses the former WYFR transmitters, which should result in improved reception altho still aimed southward at WOR times, and the 1600 Saturday broadcast is dropped after Nov 30. Times on US stations shifted one UT hour later from November 3. For B-13, WWRB returned to 3195, but sometimes also employs 5050, even in USB. In August, WTWW-2 expanded Brother Scare hours greatly, over entire 9930/5085 --- except for Saturday evenings including WOR at 2327v on 9930, now UT Sunday 0030 on 5085. From April 25, SiriusXM dropped WRN and WOR from Channel 120. Added a new outlet February 10, 2013: KFKB, 1490, Forks, Washington, Sundays at 3 am PST/PDT, now 1000 UT. WBCQ canceled our only 7490 time as of Feb 23, 2012 and from March 1 replaced by 0200v UT Saturdays on 5110v-CUSB.

Please P- or E-mail the station where you hear World of Radio, thanking them for doing so as a public service. Sorry, W.O.R. does not offer QSL cards, though the SW stations carrying it do. WRMI has a special WORLD OF RADIO QSL card for reports sent directly to WRMI for broadcasts on WRMI. W.O.R. welcomes informal reports on reception quality, interference problems. Notice a discrepancy in our broadcast times given here or an annoying technical problem? We try to reconfirm the times but sometimes we are the last to know of changes unless you tell us directly.
Continent of Media, an additional half-hour, available on the web if not SW until they appear as a World of Radio Extra when production of a new show takes a week off. Check Anomaly Alert for news of next edition which may be aired elsewhere, or webcast. COM is allegedly produced approximately once a month to sesquimonth, but has been hibernating since mid-2007. It deals primarily with domestic media developments in the Americas, not especially shortwave. Latest COM is available at DXing.com sponsored by Universal Radio. These links also appear for your convenience at OUR CURRENT AUDIO.
UNDERWRITING WORLD OF RADIO We have expenses in producing and distributing WOR including website, associated computer costs, recording equipment. PayPal is available for donations to woradio at yahoo.com. Or a check in the mail (US funds on a US bank, please) to P O Box 1684, Enid OK 73702, USA. Donors are acknowledged in the middle of each WOR broadcast. All amounts are welcome, large and small.
DONATIONS TO SUPPORT GLENN HAUSER'S SW ACTIVITIES I do not have a full-time job, not much of a retirement income, and am too young for Social Security. Miscellaneous, free-lance income keeps me going. If you appreciate my work, which comes to you on a gratis basis, please consider contributions in any amount, which are not tax-deductible. (If public radio, and every preacher on earth can ask you for money, why shouldn't I for my worthwhile work?) A few major donors would make a very great difference in my financial security and ability to continue doing the work I love. --Glenn

REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL BROADCASTING and DX LISTENING DIGEST on paper have been suspended, and probably will not appear again. Existing subscribers may request an immediate pro-rated refund by supplying a self-addressed stamped envelope and label code number(s). Subscribers who have received RIB Online are considered to have zeroed out their refund (probably well in excess of value owed). Other outstanding subscribers will eventually get a refund, by check in North America, probably IRCs elsewhere. Obviously, new subscriptions are no longer accepted. Spare RIBs, mainly issues 153 and 151, may still be purchased while stock lasts. Samples cost $2.50 each in N. America, $3 or 6 IRCs each elsewhere by airmail. US funds only on a US bank or by postal money order to Box 1684-E, Enid, OK 73702 USA. Sorry, no credit cards. Cash accepted only at sender's risk.
RIB BACK ISSUE CLEARANCE From 1977 until 1989, we kept a limited supply of spare RIBs, almost every issue from 4 through 131. In those years, it really was more of a "Review". These are not indexed, and we cannot search for specific topics, but interesting historical reading is assured in each issue. Order for $2 each, plus shipping and handling. E- or P-mail how many copies, year range, you would like, and we'll quote you a price. Priority will be given to those ordering complete sets or larger quantities. Just a few copies of most RIBs 132-150 and DXLDs are also in stock--first come, first served, at same price. Box 1684-E, Enid, OK 73702 USA.
