APPEAL FOR CHRISTIANS SUFFERING OPPRESSION

APPEAL FOR CHRISTIANS SUFFERING OPPRESSION

Li Wei*, a Christian father and church leader in China, and his wife are good tenants. They always pay their rent on time and keep their flat tidy. But since January 2020 they have been evicted from three apartments simply because of their faith in Jesus.

The landlords were pressured by Communist party members to evict Li Wei’s family and this situation has been devastating. But this is not all.

Recently, the authorities cut both the water and the electricity supplies in Li Wei’s apartment. So, when some friends from their church visited them, they found Wei’s wife using a torch to help her children do their homework.

Later, with a smile on her face she started to cook some food to share using just a small camp stove. “We are forced to live in darkness” she said. “But our hearts are full of light. The light that comes from God’s Word.”

Revival FM’s partner Release International hears many stories like this from Christians in China and elsewhere who are experiencing daily pressures from local authorities or religious leaders who actively oppose the spread of the gospel.

Will you help believers like Li Wei to stand firm in their faith in the face of increased persecution and oppression by sending a special gift to Release International today?

Yes, I will help oppressed Christians and their families

You and I might never experience the kind of situations Christians like Li Wei are up against, but we can do something to show them that they are not alone. By giving to Release International today you can show a precious brother or sister in Christ who is being oppressed for their faith that God has put them in your heart and that you love them. Your gift will be used to provide financial support and basic supplies for oppressed Christians and their families, as well as pastoral care and discipleship resources.

• £30 could provide 15 Bibles to remote rural communities in Northern and Central India.
• £50 could provide food for a family of Christian Iranian refugees in Turkey for a month.
• £100 could fund 10 pastors and church workers in China who are unable to find other jobs because of persecution with essential support costs for a month.
• £250 could allow a life transforming development to the home of a destitute Christian family in Egypt, such as the provision of a roof.

Yes, I will help oppressed Christians and their families.

Improved DAB+ indoor and in-car Revival reception across Glasgow

Improved DAB+ indoor and in-car Revival reception across Glasgow

Nation Broadcasting has successfully upgraded its DAB digital radio multiplex in Glasgow, with the launch of a second transmitter located in Glasgow city centre on Thursday 6 June 2019.

The new signal now synchronises with the first transmitter to create a Single Frequency Network (SFN). The improvement will boost coverage in and around the city centre, as well as to the north and west.

Ash Elford, DAB Platform Manager at Nation Broadcasting, said: “In a short space of time, Nation has turned around the fortunes of the Glasgow DAB trial multiplex. We’ve invested behind the scenes in new equipment and new telecoms. This included switching to the world leading Factum Radioscape Enmuxa platform for DAB multiplexing in November 2018. Nation is now realising its ambition of giving Glasgow a DAB multiplex it deserves, with improved coverage and an improved choice of stations.”

The multiplex currently broadcasts 21 services, including Revival FM and a range of Glasgow community radio stations and several special interest services. The multiplex now has a waiting list, with more services planned, subject to Ofcom approval.

Revival is carried on the DAB digital radio multiplex with transmission at 24 kbts DAB+ stereo codec HE-AAC v2. For manual tuning: Block 10B frequency 211.648 MHz

Portables and in-car have auto-tune functions, so simply press or select Auto tune or Scan for services. Some sets require to hold the Auto Tune/Scan for a couple of seconds to do a full scan of all services available in the area.

Listen to Revival on DAB+ for a better listening experience.

Revival now on DAB digital radio across Glasgow

Revival now on DAB digital radio across Glasgow

From Thursday 2 May, Revival FM commenced broadcasting on the DAB digital radio waveband across most of Glasgow city.

Some DAB digital radio do not require a retune or rescan and will automatically display Revival on the receiver or in the car. If not, select “Rescan” or “Retune” and in the alphabetical list of radio station services, select Revival when it is displayed.

Revival is being carried on the Ofcom Trial Glasgow Small-scale DAB digital radio multiplex which is transmitting on Block 10B, frequency 211.648 MHz from a single transmission site close to the Cathkin Braes.

A second transmitter to improve reception in Glasgow city centre and surrounds is awaiting clearance from regulator Ofcom. When that transmitter goes to air, that will form a Single Frequency Network (SFN). This will then provide a robust Glasgow city wide DAB+ service from the multiplex.


This is the display on a Roberts portable DAB/DAB+/FM radio. You may have to do a full scan or auto scan for the radio to pick-up and display Revival. Once available and on display, please select and save as a pre-set favourite.

Revival FM is transmitting using the improved DAB+ digital radio AAC codec system in stereo.

This DAB+ transmission joins the existing Revival 93FM Glasgow service which commenced programming at Easter.


As an example, Revival on display on a Vauxhall Corsa car.
Some cars auto tune and when you go to the station list, scroll down until you see Revival and select and then make Revival on DAB as a pre-set favourite.
Otherwise, you may need to tune in manually to Block 10B / 211.648 MHz by using Seek, Tune or use the Menu. Most car displays have these functions.
You can then listen to Revival in crystal clear stereo.
When out of range of the DAB reception area, the car radio will automatically tune to the 93FM analogue frequency for continuity of service.
