Flat Earth Programs On World's Most Powerful Radio Station

MONTICELLO, MAINE -- The world's most powerful radio station, 500,000-watt WBCQ in northern Maine is transmitting programs around the world produced by a wealthy religious organization proclaiming the earth to be flat among other "truths."

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.

    Shameless atheists and tools of Satan himself have taken over all public ministries which claim to be christian just as they have taken over all the schools, governments, court systems, media, etc. You have to be a very strong mind to be able to discern what is truth in the western world of today, the seat of Babylon, where Satan dwells.

      You are absolutely correct. I forget the actual Bible passage but it discusses people becoming full of vanity. Which the writer of this article certainly has. Does not take a distinct position, then tell the reader the benefits/detriments of the the position he has taken. This article gives almost no information. Though it can be assumed that the author (erroneously) thinks a great deal of himself.

    If the earth were flat, they would not need do much power. A high enough antenna and medium power in VHF would do it. Too bad that earth' curvature prevents line-of-site propagation, forced them to resort to such extremes and use good old ionosphere to have their signal heard. BTW, atheist do not care about religion nor do they try to convert anyone by any means. The most, some protest discrimination and a few voice their opinion about organized religions.

    1. I take it you haven't studied this subject much.
      I suggest you research NORAD-D.

    I didn't see any mention of anyone who believed in or promoted a flat earth. Some other things that was missing from this communique was the many other programs that are found on this station such as The John P. Lightning little bit of everything radio extravaganzo. Next this is this, since you don't listen to this station, nor own it and probably do not have the radio equipment to listen to it, why would you care. And more, why would you waste people time by publishing an article about this. Intelligent people who don't like what is on a radio station simply turn to another station. That takes a far shorter amount of time than writing an article with a misleading headline as to what was to be discussed...flat earth, there was no mention of flat earth.

    1. As noted in the article the "flat earth" believers will begin their daily programs on July 8 when the 500,000 watt WBCQ begins the programming for the World's Last Chance organization who is leasing all the time exclusively on 9.330 mHz and paying for the new antenna, studios, and transmitter.
