Winter Solstice Special Broadcast from the BBC

The annual BBC Winter Solstice Broadcast to the British Antarctic Survey team is occurring today, June 21 at 2130 to 2200 UTC. The following frequencies will be used:

7350 kHz via the Ascension transmitter, 250 kw, beaming 207 degrees

5875 kHz via the Woofferton transmitter, 250 kw, beaming 184 degrees

5985 kHz via the Dhabayya transmitter, 500 kw, beaming 203 degrees

My thanks to Rob Wagner at Mount Evelyn DX Report for this.

I shall be listening tonight to see if I can log all these frequencies and have a listen to the broadcast. I was not aware that this broadcast was a yearly occurrence, so I will be very interested in the content.
