Having produced this book for the past 24 years, we are very sorry to announce that WRTH 2022 will be the final edition of World Radio TV Handbook produced and published by WRTH Publications.
This has been an extremely difficult decision and was only made after a lot of thought and discussion.
We know that many people rely on WRTH and greatly enjoy getting the new edition every year.
We realise that this news will be disappointing for many people.
We wish to thank you all for your loyal support over the years.
Good DX and Happy Listening,
Nicholas Hardyman (WRTH Publisher)
and the WRTH Editorial team

Texas Radio Shortwave’s designed some great eQSLs for its holiday programs during December and wants to make it easier for listeners to receive them.
To that end, TRSW will not require that reports contain comments on the programs.
Reports will still need times and titles of songs, times of station IDs and announcements, and an SIO or SINPO rating. They should also include the listener’s receiver and antenna.
Reports should be sent to [email protected]

Cari amici, Radiocom, la compagnia che garantisce l’emissione dei programmi di Radio Romania International, ha annunciato il malfunzionamento del trasmettitore BD 300-1 di Ţigăneşti (vicino a Bucarest), che trasmette RRI.
Radiocom si sta sforzando per rimediare al malfunzionamento.
Sono interessate frequenze brevi per gli show RRI in rumeno (azimut New York, e il corriere rumeno, trasmesso domenica), inglese (azimut New York, San Francisco, Nairobi, Londra, Tokyo e in Australia), francese (azimut Paris, Africa centrale , Magreb), tedesco (azimut Berlino), spagnolo (azimut Madrid, Buenos Aires), russo (azimut Mosca, Novosibirsk), arabo (azimut magreb e Mashrek) e cinese (azimut Pechino).
D’altra parte, Radiocom ha annunciato di avere un guasto meccanico al trasmettitore di Săftica, BD 100-1, che ha colpito i programmi in italiano, serbo, ucraino e dialetto aromatico.
Il malfunzionamento è stato parzialmente riparato, ma non è possibile trasmettere i programmi con l’azimut a 30 gradi, Kiev, in ucraino.
Radiocom ha assicurato che si sforza per rimediare al guasto del trasmettitore di Saftica.
Vi terremo aggiornati sulla situazione e vi invitiamo a ricevere i programmi RRI sulle frequenze funzionali di Ţigăneşti (BD 300-2), Galbeni (ID 300-1 e ID 300-2), sul sito (incluso il demand), su SoundCloud, su applicazioni tramite TuneIn e via satellite.
