KTWR is about to start regular DRM broadcasts to four different areas. There will be broadcasts one day per week to each of four areas starting 5 August 2019. They will be working with the content server parameters to come up with the best compromise settings for each area. Each week will have different settings. KTWR will really appreciate your feedback for as many weeks as possible. Your assistance will ultimately help give your fellow listeners the best possible reception in the long run. For now, all programs will be in English.

The schedule will be as follows, starting the week of 5 August through the end of the A19 broadcast season:

Day                 Freq                Time                   Region                   Power
