DX Partyline to close

To all,

I have received a message from Allen Graham, host of HCJB's DX Partyline,
that the program will be closing down, with the final edition to be
broadcast on the weekend of May 28/29 2011.

The show was first broadcast on May 29, 1961, which means that it will have
celebrated 50 years at the date of closing.

I have been a contributor to DXPL since 1979, currently with special
monthly episodes of the Australian DX Report, and I have welcomed the
opportunity to have been able to support HCJB's worldwide mission over those
32 years.

DXPL currently is broadcast on shortwave over HCJB-Australia at Kunnunurra,
Weatern Australia, and on relay over WRMI, WWCR, and European Gospel Radio
(IRRS-Nexus)

The show on April 30 carried Allen's announcement of the impending closure.

Regards from Melbourne!

  1. HCJB was always my favourite short wave radio station and "Musical Mailbag" my favorite program. I was gutted when they, first of all, discontinued most of the general interest programming, and then discontinued all English language programming from Quito. The DX Partyline from Australia was our last link with the much loved HCJB English Service and now that's going too. It's the end of an era (literally) and again, I'm gutted by this news.
