WBCQ 3265v AM 0101 UTC 31 DEC 2022
« on: December 31, 2022, 0525 UTC »
Exact frequency was 3265.13 kHz at tune in, drifted up to 3265.18 kHz by 0129 UTC. S7 (but lots of static) with the Raleigh, NC KiwiSDR.

0101 UTC-WBCQ ID
0101 UTC-Classical music (familiar but neither I nor Shazam can recall the title)
0102 UTC-Beginning of the "New Years Eve New Years Eve Show", hosted by two OMs, difficult to copy
0133 UTC-Program still going

0340 UTC-GONE

EiBi shows this schedule:

3265          0000-2400       USA Brother Stair            E   NAm
3265          0100-0200 Sa    USA WBCQ The Planet          E   NAm

The part showing Brother Stair was just added recently and I am doubtful of its accuracy. Since the end of the program listed for Saturday (Friday local time) only I have not heard anything on the frequency.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

He indeed is, but apparently not on 3265 kHz and drifting. I have been checking daily to see if there is anything other than the broadcasts by the WBCQ staff at 0100-0200 UTC on Saturdays on 3265 kHz and I have seen no sign of it. Still nothing listed for the frequency in the schedule section of the (poorly maintained) WBCQ website but it is listed on the main page as one of their frequencies. Nothing about it on the WBCQ Facebook page either, which is updated daily with Radio Angela schedules for the day. I wonder what TX they are using that will drift that much?

A certain station engineer used to blame things like that on Weiner getting in the transmitter room and screwing around. Or so I've heard.

For them that's actually fairly close to being on frequency, their old 5110 transmitter was often closer to 5109.80 most of the time i would tune in. Considering that most of the stuff is cobbled together out of military surplus and converted AM broadcast rigs, its not a surprise.
