From Summit, New Jersey, USA

Dear Sir, I am pleased to report reception of the Italian Radio Relay Service on 30 May 2009 from 1925 to 1950 hours UTC on a frequency of 7290 kHz in the 41 meter shortwave band.

At 1929 hours UTC, a male announcer station identification was heard: “You are listening to a transmission from IRRS,” followed by mention of your postal address. This was followed by the announcement: “Welcome to Outlook,” then a spiritual commentary by James White entitled “Spirituality on the Lord’s Prayer,” based on the book he wrote. I was very impressed with his commentary in relation to the fact that “we have crammed our lives with noise and we never give silence an opportunity.” I could not agree more! One of the ways that I have discovered to counter this effectively is outdoor gardening. When I am amidst the trees, wildlife and sounds of nature, it places me in a mindset where I am totally open to God’s green earth and all its creatures. This allows me to be in harmony with my surroundings and some of the wisdom that comes from this encounter.

At 1934 hours UTC, I received additional spiritual insight in the answer to the question: “Why should we pray?” The answer was: “Because God has chosen to take our prayers into consideration.” Then mention was made of the television program Star Trek, when the male announcer said: “Jesus is the Hero for all time.” He then said: “You are listening to Outlook from United News & Information.” Then followed news about the creation of a Palestinian State; the University of Notre Dame and the U.S. Supreme Court.

At 1940 hours UTC, I heard mention of Proverbs 2 Verse 20: the relationship men have with each other is very important and the need for having spiritual mentors.

Reception conditions at my location this afternoon were fair to good. My SINPO Code rating is 35333/4. Your signal registered at S7 dB on my RL Drake R8A Communications receiver, attached to an end-fed longwire antenna 30 meters in length. Reception was quite favorable, since there was no competing Amateur Radio Operator activity on this frequency in this time slot.

I was delighted to have heard your excellent program today and reception was favorable for me to enjoy its content. If my report is correct in detail, please send me your QSL Card of verification for this transmission, kindly listing the transmitter site and power output. I enclose one US dollar for use as return postage to reply to my request.

Best Regards,

Marconi’s wireless

Marconi’s wireless. Shrouded then as now, in mystery. Signals traveling around the globe, via the reflective power of the ionosphere. Programming in hundreds of tongues beamed to the far corners of the earth twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. Signals so small they are measured in microvolts. So powerful they have affected the course of history and shaped the minds of men and women ever since Marconi’s marvelous invention.

French aviator and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote: The central struggle of men has ever been to understand one another, to join together for the common weal. On another occasion, he expanded on this belief: Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures – in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.

A parchment on my wall from Radio Vaticana carries similar words: All over the world radio communications promote good will and understanding among people. We live in a global village that is totally dependent upon our ability to live and communicate with each other. It has always been my intention to reach forth through shortwave radio with these ideals in mind, while continuing to search for those places or stations I haven’t yet logged.

My listening experience on the shortwaves has brought me in contact with countless peoples of this diverse planet, from Greenland to Spanish Sahara, Antarctica to Tahiti.

The Middle East factor

Troops tuning into Shortwave beamed to Middle East"Television is great, and we should be o­n television." "The Internet is great, and we should definitely be o­n the Internet. But the rest of the world is not like the United States in terms of their access to this kind of information technology. There are places where there is no substitute for radio." (Art Chimes war time correspondent and producer at the Voice of America commenting a resolution of the US agency to increase its broadcasts to Middle East).
