New Short Wave Transmitter in Brazil

The three hours of Portuguese language programming that we air from Bonaire each day comes from a 24 hour a day satellite feed produced by our TWR partner in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Many local stations in Brazil also pick up and rebroadcast these programs.

Although we no longer broadcast on the short wave radio bands from Bonaire. Our TWR partner in Brazil has been broadcasting on two 10,000 watt transmitters. On Nov. 21, they commissioned a new 50,000 watt transmitter so they can reach more of that large country. You can read more about it here.

One cool side story is that the site manager and engineer for the RTM (Radio TrĂ¡ns Mundial) short wave installation found the Lord as a result of listening to programs broadcast from Bonaire! You can read this inspiring story here.
