Speaking your language for 85 years
2021 marks the 85th anniversary of the Bulgarian National Radio’s foreign language service to the world. It all began on 16 February, 1936. One year after the Bulgarian radio was officially launched, what is now Radio Bulgaria went on the air. It was a Sunday when Radio Sofia’s full morning programme was launched, to reach Europe, North America and North Africa.
Now, 85 years later, Radio Bulgaria is still talking to the world about the country in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Serbian, Greek, Albanian, Turkish and Bulgarian.
Our special feature presents intriguing facts from the history of Radio Bulgaria, its golden voices, as well as reminiscences from the people who have worked at Radio Bulgaria through the years.

Video tour of the Österreichische Rundfunksender (ORS) at Moosbrunn, Austria. ORS is the national transmitter network operator in that country. Although Radio Austria International (ORF) uses for these transmitters for only 80 minutes daily, other international broadcasters make much greater use of the facilities for their services into Africa, Middle East and Europe. Radio Japan, BBC, Adventist World Radio, IBRA Radio and Bible Voice are some of the stations currently leasing time at Moosbrunn

Many listeners already noticed, that from Saturday, 15.28 UTC until Monday, 09.10 UTC we have been off air. Reason was a heavy storm, that caused severe damage to our antennas. All 3 frequencies are back on air now, but the beam is seriously damaged and repair will last 1 to 2 week, we guess. We say thank you to all of you, who have already sent donations to help us to cover the costs; if you are on plan to do this: PayPal to info @ channel292.de. Because you don't need a protection for a buyer, please use the "Friends and Family" option, because otherwise PayPal will deduct fees for a service, that does not make sense here.(Bank account on request). We will keep you up to date how the work on the beam goes on!

Occasionally, we run across a new artist we feel listeners might be interested in. A couple of weeks ago, friend and listener Robert Kipp in Germany read a newspaper article about a budding German country & western artist with Austin roots.
Her name is DanaMaria Rühlemann. She’s 27. She’s just released a 13-track CD entitled “Desert Diamond,” inspired by her summers clubbing in Austin and listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, and Cheryl Crow.
In the newspaper article, DanaMaria laments not being about to tour and play in front of live audiences because of the Coronavirus. To help DanaMaria get her songs heard in Europe and North America, we're pleased to say that we've scheduled a program of her music on Channel 292 according to this schedule:
Sunday, March 14, 2021
0200 UTC WRMI 5950 kHz
1500 UTC 6070 kHz Channel 292
1700 UTC 3955 kHz Channel 292.
We'll offer a limited edition, NUMBERED eQSL for correct reports. We might even send out some hard-copy signed QSLs if we feel generous. You won't know what you'll receive until you send us a report.
