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.
   Yep!! Voice of America, Radio Moscow, BBC, Radio Netherlands, Deutche Well, Radio Bucharest, Radio Australia, Radio Havana Cuba, China, etc!!!   Smiley

To the original poster...apparently you are new to radio or at least to SWL but your call sign indicates that you've been around so I was surprised by your question. Nonetheless, what a few have said about the techniques that content broadcasters use to maximize their outreach is true. Multiple transmitters on a variety of frequencies with their varied propagation opportunities are used to maximize the content providers reach and increase their audience. It's rather simple, really. Just look at AM radio...on the hour network broadcaster's news or syndicated programming on many stations increases reach into many locations.  As far as the preacher and how he does it...well, if enough people send him contributions he can afford to expand his reach and use many transmitters all over the bands. On a personal note, SWL used to be exciting but these days it's as boring as listening to some preacher rant on all over the spectrum.

I get a kick out of WTWW and Ted Randell. Great show. The WBCQ stuff would be really cool over the air if only I could receive it here. I listen online from time to time, but it isn't the same.

Something about the sound of AM radio.......
