For the past most-of-a-century, it was entirely usual for International SW Broadcasters to use multiple frequencies at same time.

Different target parts of the world have different conditions on different bands. There may be two frequencies in use on one band at same time, pointed in different directions through different antennas.

He obviously has the revenues to pay for the broadcasts, and as he believes he is the end time prophet, he has ample motivation to get out on as many stations as possible -- and obviously his followers feel just as motivated to provide the funds.

Not passing judgments on his religious beliefs either way -- just sayin'.

I can remember as a kid in the 60s listening on my old S-120 receiver and seeing how many of the listed frequencies I could hear at the same time for the same station. I remember some of the big power house stations would have 6 or more broadcasts going at the same time all on different bands. I also remember having a hard time getting up the next day because I would stay up very late at night just surfing the bands. SW was a lot of fun back then.

Indeed it was. Radio Moscow World Service -- it was everywhere.

 I remember going up to the local drug store and buying a copy of Popular Electronics for 50 cents. That would have all of the frequencies for all of the SW stations. From there I would try and find as many of the stations that I could. And yes, Radio Moscow would have several listings on many freqs all at the same time.

Time on shortwave broadcasting stations is surprisingly inexpensive.

Too bad some of the so-called "ham show shortwave broadcasters" can't get on a transmitter(s) that can actually be heard across the U.S. Maybe they need some PayPal love?

WBCQ is inaudible 90% of the time in S Texas metro areas no matter the time of day.  On the other hand, the preacher(s) freqs on the other outlets are 24/7 S9+ on one or the other or more all day long.

RHC is S9+15 on most of their frequencies at various times of day.

RCI is S9+30 most of the time on optimum freqs.

WTWW is solid
