Gaweylon Tibetan Radio Program QSL'd

Gaweylon Tibetan Radio Program broadcast was recently verified from Kolkata, India. The half hour Tibetan programme from Gaweylon was heard on 4 July, 2015 between 12-1230 UTC, on 15215 kHz in the 19 meter band, relayed via FEBA using 250kW transmitter at Dhabbaya, UAE (Babcock facility).  SINPO for the broadcast was 43433 at my QTH in Kolkata, West Bengal, India using RX Tecsun PL660 with its extended telescopic whip antenna. The magazine program consisted of traditional and modern Tibetan music and songs, including health and general knowledge features.

A reception report along with a five minutes recording of the audio was mailed to their email id on the next day. An email reply was received within a couple of hours from Mr. Anil Alfred (Director) Gaweylon Tibetan Radio Programme thanking my effort and promising a hard copy QSL within a few days.

A package from Gaweylon arrived on 13 July, 2015 consisting of the following collectibles – Hard copy (full data) QSL card (25 yrs spl.) v/s Anil R. Alfred (Director) with Tibetan painting on reverse, a picture post card (depicting Tibetan art), another post card with painting (the original work was done by a Foot and Mouth Painting artist of India), schedule printed on visiting card (in English & Tibetan) and QSL letter v/s Anil R. Alfred (Director).

Those of you who are new to this station let me give you a brief on who they are and what their legacy is. “Gaweylon is a charitable society which exists for the promotion and development of knowledge.” They include charitable, social and cultural aspects of life in their daily programming, with moral and spiritual material based on the teachings of the Holy Bible. They have partnered with FEBA Radio - Far East Broadcasting Corporation

Currently they broadcast daily on 15215 kHz via FEBA/ FEBC hired transmitter facility in Dhabbaya, Uinted Arab Emirates (UAE). Gaweylon has started their broadcast in 1990 and this year they’re celebrating their 25 yrs of on-air broadcasts!
