6140, Radio UNAMSIL verified with a nice two-page frequency only letter from v/s Sheila Dallas, Station Manager and Executive Producer, at UNAMSIL Headquarters in Freetown in 89 days who sent along a program schedule and a very nice tee shirt. She described the transmitter as a 1 KW Harris make that covers an estimated 85% of the country's 4 million people. They seem pleased with the results considering the difficult terrain of Sierra Leone. She notes reception reports from more than 100 persons scattered around the world. The FM signal is making it into neighboring Guinea, Liberia and Gambia. Needless to say, I am very pleased to have received this package. R.D'Angelo-PA-USA DXplorer-ML Apr 03
Hier kam heute auch das UNAMSIL-Päckchen aus Sierra Leone: T-Shirt, Program Guide, UNAMSIL Review "The Countdown Begins", und teilweise detailierter QSL-Brief von v/s Sheila Dallas (Station Manager and Executive Producer Radio UNAMSIL). Ich bin überrascht, denn eigentlich hatte man schon vor zwei Jahren meinen Empfangsbericht per Brief bestätigt. Egal: doppelt hält besser ;-) Vermutlich werden nun alle vorliegenden Empfangsberichte nochmal abgearbeitet. Es besteht also Hoffnung ;-) H.Kuhl-D A-DX-ML Apr 04
Große Überraschung beim Öffnen des Briefkastens: Ein großer, zerfetzter Umschlag, vollgepflastert mit UN-Marken. Inhalt: Ein zweiseitiger QSL-Brief von Radio UNAMSIL, 6137 kHz, aus Sierra Leone. Dazu ein Radio UNAMSIL-T-Shirt und Infos zur UNAMSIL-Mission. Verie Signer ist Sheila Dallas, Station Manager and Executive Producer. [..] Laut QSL wird auf 49m ein 1 kW-Harris-Sender benutzt. Und ich war der Meinung, die Kurzwelle wird nicht mehr benutzt, habe schon lange keine Logs mehr gelesen. Auch die Webseite ist schon längere Zeit verschwunden. Der Brief wurde am 27.3.04 geschrieben, lag also nicht jahrelang irgendwo in der Ecke. Damit hatte ich überhaupt nicht gerechnet. Laufzeit 2 Jahre und eine Woche! Ich hatte damals sowohl per snailmail mit Dollar als auch per e-mail geschrieben, es gab ein e-mail zurück, daß man mir eine QSL schicken würde. Die QSL-Briefe kamen, überall Hurra-Meldungen, nur mein Bericht war mal wieder nicht im Lotterietopf gewesen. Jetzt auf einmal ohne follow-up das Päckchen aus Sierra Leone! M.Elbe-D direct to QIP Apr 04
6137.8 kHz, R. UNAMSIL SIERRA LEONE- UNAMSIL. Received the QSL package as reported by Harald Kuhl of Germany. Had the same enclosures (2-page personal letter, program sked, Jan 04 UNAMSIL Review Magazine and T-Shirt). I had also enclosed a ppc and it was filled out but with freq as 6140 (I reported 6137.8), time as 0000 hours to 2400 hours (rather than the actual time of my report) and the date (which was correct). They list the transmitter power on my prepared card as 100 watts. J.L.Sgrulletta-NY-USA Cumbre DX-ML Mai 04
QSL from R UNAMSIL in Sierra Leone on 6137.7 who after nearly two years time replied with a letter, T-shirt, paper and scheme. V/s was Sheila Dallas, Station Manager & Executive Producer (in SW Bulletin-S via T.Nilsson-S) D.Olsson-S DXLD 4-072 Mai 04
UNAMSIL, Sierra Leone 6140. After a few years another QSL as a formula letter (v/s Sheila Dallas as last time), a booklet with schemes etc, a paper from UNAMSIL and a T-shirt (XL to my great luck). Is the station just on frequency nowadays, so that is the reason we can't here them or is the tropical weather that have degraded the antennas and transmitter? (in SW Bulletin-S via T.Nilsson-S) J.Edh-S DXLD 4-072 Mai 04
UNAMSIL. Received the QSL package as reported by Harald Kuhl last week. Had the same enclosures (2-page personal letter, program sked, Jan 04 UNAMSIL Review Magazine and T-Shirt). Three things of note: First, I had enclosed a ppc and it was filled out but with freq as 6140 (I reported 6137.8), time as 0000 hours to 2400 hours (rather than the actual time of my report) and the date (which was correct). Second, they list the TRANSMITTER of 1 kW in the letter, but the POWER on the ppc as 100 watts. Third, they actually wrote regarding a female announcer I reported as being on at 0700 as "No Female Announcer at this time". Other comments included a deep-voiced announcer that I reported on as hosting a program turned out to be Sierra Leone's #1 DJ (DJ Base). Their veri statement in the letter was: "What you heard during those times (I assume other than the reported female at 0700) mentioned seems most accurate according to our log." Seems like they really checked the reports, so I wonder if anyone received or will receive a rejection letter. My package came with a UNAMSIL return addr but the stamps are US- one 37-cent stamp and FIFTEEN 23-cent additional postage stamps plus a 10-cent metered additional postage that was dated Apr 30th (the UN postmarks on the stamps are not dated). This was for a second followup with $2 enclosed. No previous letters were received. Like Harald's, the letter was dated March 27th and the veri signer Sheila Dallas. Total time was 2 years.
