Also received a friendly letter from the verification signer Martin Ouma Ojwach, Senior Superintendent of Electronics, stating " Rated power output of Langata Shortwave station is 100kWs. I may not tell you precisely the power they were radiating at the time you tuned. I therefore leave the space blank in your QSL card ".

QSL KBC Nairobi : KBC Nairobi bestätigte die Somali-Sendung auf 4885 kHz nach 240 Tagen mit persönlichem Brief, unterzeichnet von Weche B. Francis. Heute kam auch noch eine virtuelle Weihnachtskarte, auf die man bei Bedarf mit einem " Gift Certificate " antworten kann (was wohl als Wink mit dem Zaunpfahl zu verstehen sein dürfte.). E.Gehrig-E A-DX-ML Dez 00
4935 Kenya Broadcasting Corporation No data, hand-written letter on KBS stationary signed by Weche B. Francis acknowledging my (fifth) follow up letter dated April 20, 2001 and promising to verify my report from December of 1997. (Not much of a QSL, but I think I will count it, as my report documented a strong signal with confirmed identification.) Mr. Francis noted that Henry Makokha, the veri-signer noted in Passport "is fine although now in a different department". R.E.Hankison-KS-USA Cumbre DX 353 Jun 01
A surprise in the post today from Kenya. This was from my last report of 13 months ago addressed to Martin Ouma Ojach, Engineer at the PO Box 38, Marala Transmitter Station. The letter (on plain white paper) was from a 41 year old named Robinson Wanjau Githae who says that Martin has retired and he now is the present Eng. in Charge. He gave the date & freq of my reception and mentioned how much they enjoyed listening to my tape. No "official" confirmation was noted but close enough for these days. He mentioned that KBC is no longer on short wave in English but still on AM 1386 kHz. (I have seen recent reports of EE on short wave?). Interesting to say the least. Because the envelope and letter contain no official KBC logo etc I will have to do some further investigation to see if this guy actually does work for KBC. He did ask for some information about engineering in Canada and did use the PO Box 38 as his return address, so.. Taped report and 1 IRC. M.Delmage-AB-CAN HCDX-ML Jul 01

I had the same problem with Kenya 1386. All reports to Nairobi were ignored. Writing directly to the transmitter-station then finally did the trick. Back in October 96 I got a nice verification letter for 1386 kHz from Martin Ouma Ojwach, Senior Superintendent-Electronics, Engineer-in-Charge of Maralal Station (what a title! :-) Address is P.O.Box 38, Maralal, Kenya. He wrote, that they'd highly appreciate a recording on cassette. Don't know if this guy is still there, but I think it's worth a try. M.Elbe-D HCDX-ML Aug 01

Ich erhielt heute via Wilhelm Herbst in Fjerritslev, DNK u.a. eine QSL von KBC Maralal. Offensichtlich liest niemand die den Empfangsberichten beigefügten Schreiben richtig durch, da ich um Übersendung an meine Heimatanschrift in Wuppertal bat. Der Brief datiert vom 4. März, also nur 6 Wochen nach meiner Empfangsbobachtung vom 23. Januar. Der der QSL beigefügt persönliche Brief wurde von Robinson Wanjou unterzeichnet, der sich als "Engineer in Carge of the Maralal Radio Station" bezeichnete. M.Reiff-D A-DX-ML Apr 02

My report was sent off by registered mail and included an IRC. The reply included a nice and friendly personal letter typed on a good old typewriter, a picture postcard and a photocopy from the back of a spare QSL card they apparently don't want to give away for obvious reasons. The photocopy is filled in with all details. The enclosed letter mentioned also that the former v/s Mr. M. Ouma Ojwach in now retired. The present Engineer in charge and v/s is Mr. Robinson W. Githae. G.Schotmans-BEL direct to QIP Apr 02
