What's WRONG with typical AM or FM Radio?
As an advertiser, you want people to LISTEN to your commercials. But FM radio is “background radio.” People listen to FM while they do something else. This makes advertising on FM ineffective unless you repeat the ad so many times it's unavoidable; it's also very expensive!
Similarly, with AM talk radio, people typically listen while they're driving to or from work. While they're in the car, they cannot ACT on what they've heard. Even worse, many AM signals can't be heard inside office buildings - this can mean ads aren't heard by many during business hours! It's like throwing money away!
WHY WORLD-WIDE SHORTWAVE IS BETTER:
WBCQ Short-wave is better in many respects to typical AM and FM stations. First, short-wave is a hobby; people listen because they chose to spend hundreds of dollars on radio equipment for it. They're literally "invested" in the hobby. Next, the audience actively listens because they enjoy hearing stations from all over the world. Best of all, they listen from home, in the evening, when they are best able to ACT on what they hear. For you as an advertiser, this is the best possible scenario!
WHY WBCQ MAKES SENSE FOR ADVERTISERS:
WBCQ provides far better geographic coverage than conventional AM or FM stations at comparable advertising rates. As a matter of fact, it can be heard in 97% of the TOP 250 ARBITRON1 rated U.S. radio markets2 plus Canada while the signal is on its way to Mexico, Central and South America!
The WBCQ audience are actively engaged, informed, rugged individualists who intentionally seek other media sources. They pay very close attention to what they hear.
Audience age income demographics are better because that is what it takes to actually engage in this hobby! Even better, audience demographics include a high ratio of personal computer ownership and internet access. We're Ideal for economical web site ads to the world!
Here's how it's done. . . WBCQ is an international Short-wave station transmitting from the Monticello, Maine USA. Using a 50,000 watt transmitter into a special, super-high-technology "log-periodic" 14 db gain, BEAM antenna, WBCQ has an "effective radiated power" of 725,000 watts on a worldwide clear channel at 7.490 MHz. That's almost FOURTEEN TIMES more powerful than the largest typical AM radio stations anywhere in the United States - and we're on a totally CLEAR channel. No other stations broadcast on this frequency anywhere in the world!
This enormous output can be heard in almost every major city in the U.S.2, plus Canada, while on its way to Mexico, Central and South America! On the map below, Yellow is very reliable signal coverage,Orange is generally reliable.
