The Hal Turner Show airs on 50,000 watt International Shortwave Station WBCQ. The program is heard in most of the contiguous United States while its signal is on its way to numerous countries around the world!
WBCQ strongly supports the United States of America’s constitutional right to free speech. Programs aired by WBCQ’s clients are not censored in any way.
WBCQ believes that it’s programmers have the right to express themselves on the airwaves in any way they seem fit. This is why you will find a diverse mix of music, talk, commentary, spiritual, religious, and commercial programming on WBCQ.
WBCQ only restricts programming content if the programmer directly advocates harming other human beings based on their race, creed, or national origin.
WBCQ welcomes your comments concerning the station’s free speech policy.
The propagation studies presented here were generated using the VOACAP software suite, a free professional HF prediction program from the US Government's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) - Institute for Telecommunications Services (ITS),originally developed for Voice of America (VOA).
For each of WBCQ’s four shortwave services, a propagation prediction chart was generated for typical operating hours. All times listed are in coordinated universal time (UTC). Sunspot numbers were estimated using the predicted sunspot numbers for cycle 24 from the IPS web site.
Signal coverage is shown in a full color graphical display over a map of North America. The median field strength in dBu is shown. Higher numbers translate to a stronger signal. Just because a particular region is not shown in the signal coverage map, it doesn’t necessarily mean that that service cannot be heard there. Shortwave signal propagation varies depending on solar conditions. A solar storm or geomagnetic disturbance can enhance or degrade shortwave signal coverage in a particular area.
To give you a visual representation of how shortwave propagation varies depending on the time of day, we combined each hour’s propagation prediction charts together in an animation.
The chart was generated in January, 2013 and shows the vast area where "The Hal Turner Show" is heard:
