Programa i QSL especial

El proper diumenge s'emetrà un programa especial de Wavescan amb motiu del tancament dels emissors situats a Ekala (Sri Lanka). A més del programa, hi haurà una QSL especial. Aquesta és la informació rebuda:

Special One Day QSL Card
     As was announced a few weeks ago, a special one day QSL card will be offered for reception reports of the broadcast of the special edition of the AWR DX program, "Wavescan" that honors the closure of the Ekala Shortwave Station in Sri Lanka.  The Seventh-day Adventist denomination made its first broadcast from the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation back in 1951, on the very first day of what was the new SLBC Commercial Service on shortwave.  Over the years, these initial radio broadcasts blossomed into Adventist World in Asia, AWR-Asia, and the programming of Adventist World Radio is still on the air shortwave from the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation, though these days from the ex-Deutsche Welle Relay Station located near Trincomalee on the east coast of the island of Sri Lanka.
     Without a specific announcement, SLBC closed their historic Ekala station on the last day of May and they transferred their international programming to the station at Trincomalee.  To honor the long and illustrious history of the Ekala Shortwave Station, the AWR DX program "Wavescan" is airing a special edition under the old title, "Radio Monitors International" and this will be broadcast beginning next Sunday, June 9, and during the following days next week.  These days, "Wavescan" is researched and written in Indianapolis by the AWR DX Editor, Dr. Adrian Peterson, and it is produced in the studios of shortwave station WRMI by Jeff White, who is noted also for his key roles with NASB, the National Association of Shortwave Broadcasters in the United States.  The AWR international DX program "Wavescan" is on the air from stations in the AWR network, and also from WRMI, WWCR & WINB in the United States, and from Spaceline in Bulgaria.
     The old Ekala Radio Station is of such significance in the long history of international radio broadcasting that the well known International Radio Monitor in Colombo Sri Lanka, Victor Goonetilleke, is campaigning widely to have the site recognized as an International Heritage Site.
     This once-in-a-lifetime special QSL card will feature a reproduction of two QSL cards that were in use from AWR in Poona-Pune nearly forty years ago.  All reception reports of this special program will be verified with this special event QSL card, and return postage and an address label will be appreciated.  The only address is:-
