Most of you know that Typhoon Mawar damaged KTWR's antennas to the point that no broadcasts have gone out from that station for the past two weeks. Several factors have made it very difficult for the team on Guam to get the antennas back in operable condition. We are sorry that is has taken so long to resume broadcasting from this site.
In the meantime, TWR has been working diligently to find other broadcasters who can air our programs during KTWR's downtime. As of the time of writing this note, ~50% of the KTWR programs have been covered by other transmitter sites. This includes some of our DRM broadcasts.
As of Tuesday, 6 June, the following DRM broadcasts will resume. They will be transmitted from Tashkent.
Frequency (kHz) Day Time (UTC) Coverage Area
15390 Tu-F 1515-1545 South Asia
15390 Su 1500-1545 South Asia
15205 Su 1600-1630 South Asia
We will keep you posted on the progress in getting the rest of the DRM broadcasts back on the air.
73 and may the Lord bless you.
