WBCQ Schedule Changes

Area 51 on WBCQ will be dropping all weekday programming starting Monday, February 1, 2010. We really hate to do this, but we aren’t able to sustain the programming given the level of support received to date. We will continue weekend programming on WBCQ 5.110 MHz, from 6pm to 10pm US eastern time Saturdays (2300 to 0300 UTC) and Sundays from 5pm to 10pm eastern time Sundays (2200 to 0300 UTC).

Area 51 is listener supported, free form, free speech radio. If you like our programming and would like to help us stay on the air, you can donate via PayPal at www.worldmicroscope.com, or send your contributions to:

WBCQ 5110 Transmitter Down

The main transmitter for WBCQ 5.110 MHz suffered a failure in one of its high power output tubes on Saturday, January 23. As a result we were on-air from 2330 to 0400 using our backup BC-610 transmitter, with a full AM signal at about 300 watts into a Timtronium dipole strung between our two wind turbine towers. Reception was widely reported in Indiana, Ohio, Massachusetts, Maryland, and other locations in the midwest and eastern US. If repairs can’t be completed by Sunday evening, we will be on the BC-610 again starting at 2300 UTC Sunday.
