Cafe Chill: Max Usable Frequency +playlist

Thank you for your interest in Cafe Chill. A playlist follows the below recommendations on how to decode our lovely program through skywave propagation.

Cafe Chill spans the downtempo universe every week, from instrumental cozi lofi hip hop beats to synthwave and synthpop. This week, we featured tracks from Memorex Memories, Sun Glitters, Cvd, Jinsang, Aso and others. Join us every Sunday from 6-10am on C89.5.

When attempting to decode Cafe Chill on your transistor-based or software-defined receiver, we recommend that you determine the maximum usable frequency for your location and the location of the transmitter. Our transmission begins at 1300 UTC Sunday on 89500 kHz. The M.U.F should be higher than 89500 kHz at both your location at the transmitter location on Cougar Mountain.

Quite often the maximum usable frequency is much below the required 89500 kHz as you can confirm on the MUF map. When this is the case, we recommend that you position your tuner at a location that is near line-of-sight, particularly when adding distance between you and the signal emitter.

The ionization of the atmosphere varies with time of day as well as with solar conditions, so the upper frequency limit for skywave reception varies on an hourly basis. We suggest that you continually check the M.U.F. during the Cafe Chill transmission. It may allow you to travel north, south or east away from our transmitter (or west if your reception station is maritime based in the waterways feeding the Pacific Ocean).
