NEWS RELEASE FROM ADVENTIST WORLD RADIO

NEWS RELEASE FROM ADVENTIST WORLD RADIO

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 Florida.

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 development.
