R Abkhazia - R. Respubliki Abkhazia, 9495, P / C and letter in RS for RS-lang report. Xmtr said to be 5 kw, but location was not given. v/s Yuriy Kutarba, acting General Manager, Abkhaz State Broadcasting Committee. Address : 384900, Respublika Abkhazia, gorod Sukhumi, ul. Aidgylara, 34. It might, however, be wise not to refer to Abkhazia as a (sovereign) republic, if you want your report to survive through the postal services of Georgia or Russia, which are not very happy about Abkhazia's separatism. M.Mkelinen-FIN Cumbre DX 100 Aug 1996
R Abkhazia - 9494.77, R. Abkhazia, long, friendly letter in EG, plus two postcards (for two rptd May xmsns) with full-data veri statements on back, and two folios containing a total of 36 different picture postcards.

I sent my rpt to a RS DXer, who forwarded it to the stn (I think with a cover ltr in RS), but without my tape, which RS P.O. would not accept. From the ltr : -Radio of the Republic of Abkhazia comes out in the middle waves on fqy 1350 kHz, in range of 222.2 m., and also on short waves on fqy 9495 kHz and 9508 kHz in range of 31 m.

Nevertheless my top QSL of the year ! Z.Liangas-GRC TFW Jan 1997
R Abkhazia - Republic of Abkhazia R., not a QSL yet, but my registered air-reply card came back after being in transit since July 7th, with my rpt sent last December 1997. So there's still some hope yet. E.Kusalik-AB-CAN Numero Uno 1495 Okt 1998
R Abkhazia - 9494.8, R. Abkhazia, with two full-data ppcs for June and Oct receptions in 1998. Tried a number of routes (registered direct, via Russian DX friend of JB's, via contact of George Maroti's, and even attached the report to a R. Georgia rpt to Tbilisi), so not sure what worked. No v/s on cards, but ltr in presumed Abkhazian had signature and printed name on bottom as Zurab Argun, not Yury Kutarba. I can't read what looks like a postal address in the middle of the ltr (there is a Russian co-worker I will ask Monday), but the postal code for Socchi, Russia is 354 000 and these numbers, also separated, begin the address in the ltr. C/V 239--none left for me. J.L.Sgrulletta-NY-USA Numero Uno 1619 Feb 2001
R Abkhazia - 9489.8, R. Abkhazia, two full-data ppc's signed and stamped, with a typed personal ltr in RS, from the Director, Zurab Argun, and three postcards of Abkhazia, for a June 1998 rcpn. The ltr states that they have rcvd ltrs from many countries, and requests that rpts be sent to the following address: National Library of Abkhazia, Krasnodar District, P.O. Box 964, 354000 Sochi, Russia. I had previously mailed the stn taped rpts from the USA and Hungary. My last follow-up (along with John Sgrulletta's) was hand delivered to Mr. Argun in August 2000 by the Plenipotentiary of Abkhazia for Western Europe. What's interesting is that I only enclosed one ppc in the last follow-up, yet I received two of my personally designed ppc's (with slightly different designs) in return. What this means is that one of my previous rpts had been rcvd by the stn, despite the embargo. G.Maroti-NY-USA Numero Uno 1620 Feb 2001
R Abkhazia - 9494.7, Apsua R, R Abkhas Republik. In Sep 2006 I sent a registered reception-report letter to: Mr. Yuri Kutarba, Deputy Direktor General , Apsua-Radio, ul. Aydghilara 34, 384900 Suchumi, Abkhas, RUSSIA. The letter came return after 5 months with the following note: "RETOUR,......The UPU circular # 360 of 16.10.06 - NO MAIL exchange with GEORGIA".

R Abkhazia - Apsua Radio 9494,76 kHz verified with an undet. e-mail in 2 days. E-mail: v/s Susana Sadsba P.Robic-AUT direct to QIP Sep 2008
R Abkhazia - 9489.7 Radio Abkhazia, nice p/data email QSL in 4 days for an email follow/up of a 1998 report sent in Russian. Email reply was also in Russian, and came from C at Radio Abkhazia. Most prized after 10 f/ups over the past 10 years. VIC numbers now at 246! D.Henderson-MD-USA DXplorer-ML Sep 2008
R Abkhazia - Abkhazia -- Email reply from Apsua Radio which, translated from Russian, reads, in part: "Good evening, Don Jensen. We have received your letter. Thank you for the fact that responded to our radio broadcasting. We are very pleased to hear from you that information. Yes, indeed,you listened Abkhaz radio. We get lots of (mail) from different countries as Canada, Italy, Greece, Holland and other countries. Our editorial staff will write more to you on the radio program Abkhazia Apsua Radio." As best I can transliterate from the Cyrillic to Roman alphabets, the sender seems to be Susana Sadzba, who seems to be one of the broadcasters, since she adds, "I now hasten to the broadcasts." Since receiving this I have had several more email interchanges with the sender with information that they hope to have an English service, but, unfortunately, not any time soon. The report was sent via registered mail to the several mail drops in Russia which I found in on-line searches and which I recently reported on here. I don't know which one of them actually got through to the station in Sukhumi. Email reply came from Dan: Glad to hear that this address also worked for you. Tnks for your earlier tips on hearing the station. D.Jensen-WI-USA DXplorer-ML Sep 2008
R Abkhazia - Abkhazian Apsua Radio, 9494.75 kHz, replied with a couple of e-mails in Russian from Susana Sadzba, who told me that they had read my letter on the air. I have to Google translate my English reports into Russian and also translate her Russian replies into English, so the texts are a bit confusing, although seem to be extremely friendly. They had got many letters from many countries lately. I heard them today again at 05.45, only with Radio Rossij programming. Local hymn and ID was at 07.00 UTC. E-mail address: B.Fransson-S HCDX-ML Sep 2008
R Abkhazia - REPUBLIC OF ABKHAZIA RADIO Sukhumi 9535 kHz, E-QSL cirillica in 3 giorni. E-rpt (tradotto dall'inglese al russo su Google Translate) con MP3 inviato a: L.Botto Fiora-I BCL-News-ML Nov 2008
R Abkhazia - ABKHAZIA. R. Abkhazia: I went through my spam trap mail today and lo and behold there was an e-mail from Apsua Radio dated Oct 15. As best as I can translate, it came from Susana Sadeba and states, "We thank you for your letter and thank you for listening." (via NASWA) S.Lare-MI-USA DXplorer-ML Nov 2008
