Flat Earth Programs On World's Most Powerful Radio Station
Daily continuous religious programs from "World's Last Chance" began July 8 according to radio station owner Allan H. Weiner.
The newly constructed high power shortwave station and gigantic fully rotatable antenna system is funded by World’s Last Chance, LLC, a Wyoming corporation and religious ministry headed by Galal P. Doss, a former Seventh-Day Adventist and wealthy cosmetics company owner from Egypt.
66-year Weiner and his sister own the FCC license for WBCQ which broadcasts "free speech" radio from the far northern Maine city of Monticello.
WBCQ sells time to broadcasters on it's various shortwave frequencies, including many hours of religious broadcasts from controversial 86-year old "Brother" Ralph Gordon Stair, from Walterboro, S.C.
Stair has bought a majority of the station's broadcast time over the last several decades. Now, World's Last Chance LLC will be leasing all the time on the new 500,000 watt shortwave transmitter, spreading religious messages in seven languages around the world. The organization says they are non-denominational and "a clearinghouse for end-time truth" and preparing the world for the Savior's return soon They say they don't accept tithes or offerings but encourage sharing their website, videos and articles to others.
Galal Doss has a track record of making bizarre prophecies, anti-Catholic messages and videos, and claims the earth is flat (watch one of the organization's "flat earth proof" videos above) and the group says calendars should be lunar-based on moon phases, instead of the solar calendar now used world-wide, while their programming and videos offer sometimes very peculiar interpretations of Bible verses.
Doss' organization is broadcasting exclusively on the new 500,000 watt shortwave 24/7 promoting his flat earth and religious beliefs and "sharing truth" as the radio station beams the signal around the world from the huge fully rotatable antenna, allowing the radio signal to be beamed to all parts of the world by rotating it during the day and night.

The high powered broadcasts are on the shortwave frequency of 9.330 mHz. English language broadcasts go to the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, U.K.,and Australia with six other languages to other parts of the world. U.S. broadcasts are scheduled from 1 to 3 EST according to their website. https://www.worldslastchance.com/wlc-radio
UPDATE: July 13, 2019 -- WBCQ owner Allan Weiner says the station is still "testing" the transmitter and running about 10 hours each day of the World's Last Chance LLC programs beaming to different areas including the U.S. at about 8 p.m. EST and to the Middle Eastern part of the world at other times.
UPDATE: July 18, 2019 -- Despite original plans to broadcast 24/7 religious programs on the 500,000 watt transmitter, they are shut down until further notice, said WBCQ, claiming testing is being done on higher frequencies and on antenna adjustments.
