Adventist World Radio Asia - Wavescan program to close in May

I have received advice from Rhoen Catolico, Assistant Producer, AdventistWorld Radio-Asia, that the long-running weekly English languagecommunications/media/DX Wavescan program will be closed down in May.

This is a consequence of a decision made by AWR Headquarters in the USA.

At present, AWR-Asia programming originates from studios in Singapore - from June, production will be moved to Indonesia.

The Wavescan program is broadcast from KSDA in Guam, and via the Wertachtal (Germany) relay, for a target audience across Asia, the Indian sub-continent, and the Pacific. It is also rebroadcast over WRMI, in the USA.

Since Wavescan's inception some years ago, EDXP has provided major input each month via the Australian DX Report features, for 15 minutes. During the month, Wavescan also includes features contributed from other members of the production team, including Japan, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

From June, this will mean that the only weekly media/communications/DXprogram on SW targeting Asia and the Pacific will be HCJB's DX Partyline,from Kununurra, Western Australia, which has a short version of theAustralian DX Report each month of four minutes duration.

It is not known if AWR-HQ in the USA will produce any regular communications/media/DX type programs after May.

  1. Good. We can stop listening to shortwave program. Almost major broad casters reducing their programming or closing their tranmissions.Switching to on internet will be limited here in India whereI am now. The accessibility will be very limited on cost ground. What to do with sw receivers and I think the DRM sets is going to come in big way. Considering this the 'wavescan' will be very useful for enthusiasts.
