WTWW is a shortwave station licensed to Lebanon, Tennessee.

WTWW, according to their website, stands for "We Transmit World Wide".

WTWW, according to the FCC,[page needed] was originally licensed a construction permit as WBWW on June 30, 2009. Testing began in January 2010 and ending mid-February 2010. Testing frequencies used were 5755 kHz and 9480 kHz, and recorded by several listeners who uploaded the audio to YouTube.

Both the frequencies 5755 kHz and 9480 kHz and their transmitters were previously used by Christian shortwave outlet KAIJ in Dallas, Texas.

WTWW officially signed on at 1500 UTC on Friday, February 19, 2010 using the 9480 kHz frequency at a low over-the-air power and streaming online with programming from the Scriptures for America broadcast network.

As of March 2010, WTWW (as WBWW) is licensed to operate at 100 kilowatts with an azimuth of 40°, every day, on 5755 kHz from 00:00 to 07:00 UTC and on 9480 kHz from 12:00 to 19:00 and 22:00 to 24:00 UTC, targeting CIRAF zones 4 and 9 (eastern Canada), 18 and 27–28 (Europe), 37–38 (north Africa), 39 (the Middle East), and 46–47 (western and central Africa).[1]

As of Monday, March 1, 2010 and confirmed by Glenn Hauser,[2] WTWW is full power on 9480 kHz from 1200 to 2300 UTC and 5755 kHz from 2300 to 1200 UTC with programming from the Scriptures For America broadcast network. As of early 2013, WTWW is now broadcasting Nighttime 5085 kHz at 6 pm CENTRAL 0000 UTC.
