International news media are carrying the news regarding the transfer
of WYFR, the large shortwave station in lower central Florida, to WRMI
Radio Miami International in Miami in the United States, at the end of
this month. Due to this remarkable radio development, the international
DX program, "Wavescan", will interrupt the flow of its regular
programming to honor the occasion. The final broadcasts of "Wavescan"
over WRMI Miami will be on the air during the last complete week in the
month of November, and during the first complete week in December,
"Wavescan" will be aired for the first occasion over the large new WRMI
which is located a little north of Lake Okeechobee in lower central
The DX program, "Wavescan" is written in Indianapolis
by Dr. Adrian Peterson, DX editor for Adventist World Radio, and it has
been produced over the past several years by Jeff White at WRMI Radio
Miami International in Miami. This program is on the air from WRMI in
Florida, KSDA on the island of Guam, and seasonally by several of the
shortwave relay stations in the AWR network, and also over WWCR and WINB
in the United States.
All reception reports to "Wavescan" for
the last week in November will be QSLed with a special "Last Week"
endorsement for WRMI Miami, and all reception reports to "Wavescan"
during the first week in December will be QSLed with a "First Week"
endorsement for the new WRMI at Okeechobee. These special endorsements
will be applied to all QSL cards issued for these special editions of
"Wavescan" as heard on any of these stations that carry the program,
though, where possible direct broadcast from the old and the new WRMI
would also be appreciated. "Wavescan" may also be heard via numerous
electronic deliveries, including station websites and iPod deliveries.
Listeners are encouraged to send their reception reports for these
broadcasts to the Wavescan address in Indianapolis with address label
and return postage, and also to the station that is carrying the
programming, and also to the address for the new WRMI. The last edition
of "Wavescan" via the old WRMI will be a special tribute to this
station, and the first broadcast from the new WRMI will honor this new
