ICRT Radio Frequency
Q: Why I am not receiving ICRT very clearly?

We have tripled the power of our transmission signal in Kaohsiung, but we are still receiving interference from illegal pirate radio stations. Please report this interference to the authorities to help shut down these pirate stations (Tel: Taipei 02-23435942; Taichung 04-22595941; Kaohsiung 07-2391151). We appreciate detailed information about interference problems sent to us . Thanks for your patience and hopefully working together we can bring about better radio reception for all Taiwan residents.

About Programming
Q: About DJ call-out audio copies

ICRT is not able to provide listeners with audio copies on any DJ call-outs.   These call outs normally contain background music from copyrighted audio recordings.  Due to copyright and IPR restrictions, we can not reproduce this music.

Q: Why didn't you play my song request?

ICRT DJs receive over 100 song requests daily. While we try our best to accommodate as many of the requests as possible, we can not possibly play all the requests we receive each day. Nevertheless, you can increase your chances of having your request played by filling out our on-line Song Request Form rather than simply sending an email request. We fully encourage our audience to send us requests and if you don't succeed the first time, give it another try and you might have better luck.

Q: Why can't I ever get through on the call-in line to talk to the DJs when they invite calls from the audience?

ICRT's request line is constantly ringing and the DJs don't have time to answer each call and perform their other jobs. We try to take as many calls as possible. You may also email your requests to DJs at Song Request page.

Q: Some time ago I won a prize on one of your call-in games but still haven\'t received it. What can I do to get my prize?

ICRT gives away many prizes every day and usually sponsors deliver commercial prizes. We apologize if your prize has not been delivered. You can contact us with details of your case if you have not received your prize or call 02-8522-7766 if you have not received your prize.

Q: Names of songs? Where can I find the name and artist of music played on ICRT?

Just check out our Music Log on our web site. It lists which songs we play everyday, and at what time. The music log goes back nearly two years. You can find the Music Log under the "Listen Live" menu on our home page.

About News Room
Q: Why do I sometimes see different spellings for the same Chinese words in your Web news stories? Or spellings different from the newspaper?

ICRT uses Pinyin for Romanizing Chinese names and words. Pinyin is a global standard for Romanizing Chinese, and offers consistency and ease-of-use. ICRT is a radio broadcaster, and not primarily a print medium. Therefore, our goal is to produce scripts that our anchors will be able to pronounce easily and correctly on air. However, for certain well know public figures who commonly use an English name, we strive to use their English name whenever possible.

Q: Why don't you update your Taiwan news stories on your web site over the weekend?

ICRT does maintain a news staff on weekends to provide on-air coverage of breaking stories or emergency announcements for the local English language community. However, since there is traditionally less news on weekends, we devote more of our newsgathering resources toward the weekdays.
