BBC World Service – 11945 kHz

My final logged station for Tuesday 19th October 2021 was the BBC World Service on 11945 kHz in the 25m band.

The BBC World Service is an international broadcaster owned and operated by the BBC. It is the world’s largest of any kind.

The BBC World Service commenced broadcasting on shortwave on the 19th day of December 1932 as the BBC Empire Service. It was aimed principally at English speakers across the British Empire. In his first Christmas message in 1932, King George V characterised the service as intended for “men and women, so cut off by the snow, the desert, or the sea, that only voices out of the air can reach them”
